kunstZ // deBuren // MAF


Jovial Mbenga and Nele Vereecken created the theatre piece Mon Noord together.  

They tell the story of a child who is proud to be Congolese, but dreams of distant Europe. Once an adult, Jovial travels to Europe and becomes acquainted with the literal and figurative cold climate. This journey gives both African and European reality and mentality a different perspective.  

Mon Noord is a story about dreams and unachievable expectations, illusions and disillusionments.
