PETER ZEGVELD
Peter Zegveld is a visual artist and theater maker, born in 1951 in The Hague and graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. His visual work is characterized by simplicity and accessibility and can regularly be seen in the major museums of the Netherlands. His theater performances are visual, sensory and cinematic. Due to his enormous freedom and unconventional attitude, Zegveld criss-crosses through various disciplines and allows the spectator to experience and discover absurdities. In addition to performances for theaters, festivals and his autonomous visual art, he has made productions for Orkater and television series for the VPRO.

ZERO YEARS KID
Zero Years Kid is a project by the phenomenal Flemish reeds player/composerJoachim Badenhorst. What started in 2018 as an alter ego to explore new musical terrain (pop, hip-hop, R&B), has slowly over the years evolved into an organic live-band and a new album. ​

Zero Years Kid has performed in Belgium (Middelheim jazz fest, Nona, Het Bos), Holland (Brakke Grond, Bimhuis), Italy (Alto Adige Festival), Poland (Juwenalia PW) and Japan (Forest-Limit, Tokyo). Zero Years Kid live @ Rataplan

JOACHIM BADENHORST
Joachim Badenhorst is known for his moving improvisations that go straight to the heart. Educated at the conservatory in The Hague and active from Antwerp to New York, he is particularly renowned for his award-winning clarinet skills. But there is more than that. Both original, diverse and always surprising as a solo musician, also owner of the record label “KLEIN” participant in countless ensembles and bandleader of Carate Urio Orchestra and Zero Years Kid, among others. He is considered one of the most refined names to emerge from Belgium’s improv and jazz scene over the past fifteen years.

12 TRIBES OF MARS
12 Tribes of Mars is a dynamic and versatile five-piece band, passionately crafting a fusion of reggae, ska, and rocksteady, enriched by their unique approach to free improvisation. Drawing inspiration from the captivating realm of dub, the band pays homage to the visionary producers who have reshaped reggae tracks with their innovative remakes. Their music transcends cultural and geographical borders, embodying the belief that aesthetic music is a universal language that resonates with people across the globe. With each note and rhythm, 12 Tribes of Mars strives to dissolve the barriers that separate us, forging connections that transcend race, age, and generational differences.

HEMONY
Hemony commands the stage with a relentless energy. Their psychedelic punk sound combines spacy melodies with explosive riffs to create a sonic landscape that is both challenging and exciting. With society- and self-critical lyrics that cut to the bone, Hemony delivers a raw, frustrated sound that leaves a lasting impression. Their music is both thought-provoking and emotionally charged.

KISS THE EARTH, YOU SCUM
Flamenco on acid, rage on stage Karlijn Hamer (NL) Kiss the earth, you scum is a musical fury platform. Fury fuels action. It is the engine for change. There is so much to be angry about but society leaves little room for that. Particularly when it comes to women. Kiss the earth, you scum is an invitation to experience rage so you can no longer remain passive. Allow yourself to be carried away on the wings of this furious ritual. More adrenalin, more risk, more action, and a faster heartbeat. As she dances, the award-winning performer and creator Karlijn Hamer enters into a dialogue as part of a musical installation of furious slogans, rhythms, punk, other music and movement. A wooden floor transforms into a living effect pedal.

JULIE KURRIS
Is a performer and music-theatermaker based in Amsterdam. Within her art she is looking to implement her daily engagement in a playful way, using a mixture of music, performance and image. To do this she looks for collaborations to mix her knowledge with her co-creators into interdisciplinary realms. As a performer she improvises texts on music or uses her body to dive in abstraction.
