Tolle Künste 2016

Theatre, Dance & Performance from Flanders and the Netherlands
Frankfurt Bookfair Guest of Honor 2016

Together with this year’s guests of honour, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm celebrates the Tolle Künste from Flanders and the Netherlands for an entire eight weeks. The best known of the local literature, dance, theatre and performance scene present their neuest work – in alliance with top supporting acts or in one-of-a-kind special programms: Do you want your children to explain the strangest performances to you? CAMPO CAMP’s Theater-FOR-ALL festival finally puts an end to worrying that adults could be underchallenged by a performance for a younger audience! Are you worried about your libido’s development? The Future of Sex by Johan Simons, Arnon Grunberg and Wunderbaum will actively expand your horizon! You finally want to see real people on stage? Belgian shooting start Jan Martens choreographs The Common People Frankfurt! You are (for 30 years now?) a fan of the Needcompany’s text-dance-music-total-theatrical-art and want to celebrate for two whole days together with the three-generation collective on all Mousonturm stages? WENEEDMORECOMPANY is the answer! All this is too cheerful for you? Inspired by Hieronymus Bosch and to mark the 500th anniversary of this world-famous Dutchman, the muziektheater LOD, Kris Verdonk and the Asko|Schönberg Ensemble stage hell on earth in the BOSCH BEACH!

All events of the project series „Tolle Künste“ are contributions to the official programme for Guest of Honour Flanders & The Netherlands at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016. Funded by Dutch Performing Arts and the Flemish Authorities.
