Fashionistas and theater lovers beware: The Great Art Show is coming to the Schouwburg. An hour and a half lasting viewing show with Bas Kosters, one of the Netherlands’ most idiosyncratic fashion artists. Of course, the world of fashion passes by, but themes such as eroticism, ideals of beauty and gender identity are also discussed.

On Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May you are seated at the Schouwburg good for old-fashioned enjoyment of a ‘multidisciplinary’ show.

Read: a theater show and museum exhibition in one, and a chance to get to know the eccentric Bas Kosters. Afterwards, the show transitions seamlessly into an exhibition on stage, a chance to see Kosters’ work up close once again.

The Great Art Show turns the classic museum model upside down. You do not walk through white museum halls, but as a theater spectator you are presented with art theatrically on stage. ‘Fresh, attractive and innovative’ wrote de Volkskrant about the first edition in 2013. The presentation is in the hands of the Flemish theater maker Lucas de Man, known for AVROTROS’ Kunstuur. He involves the audience in the Kunstshow and stimulates them with unexpected thoughts.

Tip: Before the performances there is the possibility to have dinner or lunch at the National Theater.
