First main programme announced

Okay, it's not really summer yet, but we are ready to annouce our first main programme to you. Kornél Mundruczó's Proton Theatre from Budapest, Hongary presents Dementia at Noorderzon this August.


Dementia is a  NXTSTP production and is thus co-produced by Noorderzon and others. NXTSTP allows for exceptional new European artists to develop their careers internationally.


Hungarian theater and film director Kornel Mundruczó like to push the viewer with his nose in things we 'd rather look away from as a society. In a dilapidated and deserted hospital lives a group of dementia patients. They live completely in their own world. Be welcome to mingle between their beds and get acquainted. And if you 're there, then you are also willing to pay for them ?

Unlike his previous raw, realistic, documentary-style performances Dementia is an operetta -like , melodramatic distortion of reality.
