Rataplan vzw, Wijnegemstraat 27, 2140 Antwerp, Belgium


What can you do against the winter blues ? In December, set things on fire, of course!

Now that we can finally give everything again after such a long time, we want to end 2021 with a bang! KunstZ hijacks Rataplan for not one day, not two, not three, but four  to dawn!

KunstZtoptalents will take their place on the Borgerhouts stage of Rataplan from Tuesday 14 to Friday 17 December. We bring you a whirlwind of music, theatre, film, and everything in between. We invite you to make it one big party with us!

Because one party is simply not enough, you can enjoy a diverse program for several evenings. Makers who have been eager to play in front of an audience for a year now, artists who have not yet been allowed to show off their work for young and old, beautiful films shot in uncertain times, ... now get the chance to be in the spotlights .

What can you expect from the program?

KunstZ brings you new creative performances around your heart every night  at  to heat. We transform Rataplan into a cozy living room and let you  meet a diverse group of talented artists:

✭ Tuesday 14 December ✭ 

19:00 Roxette Chikua with Paradis (note, different location! KunstZ - A. Rodenbachstraat 21, 2140 Borgerhout)

20:00 Somalia Williamson with Mother

20:45 Ayham Qomoq with Jinn

Somalia Williamson comes very close and brings the audience 'Mother', with which she explores the world together from the perspective of a universal figure - the mother - in search of the reflection of pure, unconditional love. Together with fellow performers/makers Alec De Bruyn (soundscape), Gorik Elaut (musician violin) and Tijen Lawton (choreography), she composes a universal story about this entity of interwoven sensations, emotions and insights that binds us all.

Ayham Qomoq transforms art Zliving into a distant, mysterious world. Together with a magical group of dancers, he brings you 'Jinn', a dance performance in which he investigates the history of mythological creatures in Eastern culture.  Via Butoh, contemporary dance and rhythm, the dancers are taken in by the life and movements of the Jinn.

Afro-futurism inspired Roxette Chikua when creating her solo dance performance 'Paradis', where she starts from her story and takes the viewer on an identity quest based on dance and fashion. On stage card  them with movement on difficult themes. Together with her, we discover and recognize the different dimensions of a young woman of color who wants to shape her own life by breaking free from everything that society considers 'normal'.
