Winternights 2023

Evelien Cammaert, Karen Hendrickx


On Friday 8 and Saturday 9 December 2023, the eighth edition of Winternights took place in and around the Lutheran Church in Maastricht. During the freely accessible performing arts festival you can see ‘unfinished’ work, or work-in-progress, by various theater makers, performers, choreographers, composers and visual artists, at surprising locations.

This eighth edition of Winternights, the program consists of a wide range of makers who make their artistic research visible. The makers are all affiliated with and invited by the organizers C-TAKT, SoAP Maastricht and VIA ZUID. This year it is Barabara Tjonck, Esra Çopur & Philipp Cahrpit, Evelien Cammaert, Gerben Vaillant, Jelle Huizinga, Johannes Bellinkx & Daan Brinkmann, Karen Hendrickx, KIN Collective, MOHA, Moni Wespi and Naomi Steijger & Lieselot Mariën who test and test their work with the Winternights audience. The unfinished nature of the work gives the audience the opportunity to engage in conversation with the makers after all presentations.

The Lutheran Church was once again the base for Winternights this year. Various spaces in and around the Lutheran Church, the Statenkwartier and the Sphinxkwartier were furnished as presentation areas, studios, lab, theater and dance floor.
