Sarah Vanhee to open 28th edition of Noorderzon

Posted at: 30 Jun 2018

The official opening of the 28th edition of Noorderzon on Thursday 23 August will be in the hands of Belgian theatre maker Sarah Vanhee, one of the most brilliant theatre makers of her generation in Flanders. She is returning to Noorderzon for the fourth time running: outspoken and fearless, one-of-a-kind and surprising.

This year she will not only be giving the opening speech, but will also be presenting her new theatre project, Unforetold, in which Vanhee has children aged 8 to 11 questioning the dark. Candidly and untouched by the often rigid thinking and actions of adults, they create an entirely new logic, which wonderfully illustrates how dark the light and especially how light the dark can be.
