From Sunday 9 to Sunday 23 June, HKU and Theater Kikker will give the latest crop of young talent a stage in the middle of the city. In transparent KikkerKontainers on Janskerkhof, opposite HKU Theatre, students will have the opportunity to present their work to the Utrecht audience. Come and meet the talent of the future and be amazed and overwhelmed. The programme is free to all.

HKU and Theatre Kikker are tackling free art in public spaces. On Janskerkhof, a busy junction in the middle of the city where buses and cyclists normally whizz past, there is now a place to stand still. Students from HKU Theatre and HKU Design invite you to admire their work here.

Cultural Sunday Utrecht New 9 June

The programme kicks off during the Cultural Sunday Utrechtse Nieuwe. Jiska Mensink and Emile Rogissart, two alumni of HKU Theatre, present Krauwel, a physical visual performance about finding the clean in the dirty. Elise Slurink, HKU Product Design student presents her graduation work The Girl, which offers a new take on a painting everyone knows. Product design student Nienke Baten invites you to not only view but also experience her weaving. Weaving is experiencing!

Programme Frog Containers

On 13 and 14 June Rebeka Németh, HKU Theatre student, her graduation work inspired by Samuel Beckett's Endgame, in which two actors protect the interior space of a container as a fragile ecosystem. On 21 and 22 June, the result of Transmedial Storytelling; a collaborative project between two HKU Theatre majors: Writing for Performance and Interactive Performance Design. Over two weeks, they will bring to life a transmedia world full of stories in a first draft. Joep Janssen, Fashion Design student, combines electronic music with traditional weaving techniques, resulting in a hypnotic show where sound, image and craft merge. Joep weaves to the rhythm of analogue drum computers, slowly creating a pattern on the rug.
