What’s up on Monday September 12?
Finally… the time has come. It’s Monday September 12 and in a few hours Incubate 2011 will begin! It’s this moment that we as Incubate, our crew, all the volunteers etc. have been working towards for the last year. This is what we’ve all done it for. So what can you expect to happen on this beautiful Monday in September?
During the day there is a lot to do, even before the official opening is set to happen. In the Bibliotheek Tilburg, Dimitar Solakov will be present during the entire festival with his exhibition ‘Youth’. At the BKKC the New Jacks 3.0 exhibition (which was officialy opened yesterday) will take place. Some more exhibitions which you will be able to attend this day are The Lost Relay, our @ducate posterproject and Whatspace/Let’s Jam. If you fancy catching a movie or two, you can visit the Film Foyer where a open source film is played, as well as the movie Noise and Resistance. Of course you can discover more than 100 pianos throughout the entire city as a part of our Play Me, I’m Yours project.
At 18.00h sharp, we will kick off Incubate 2011 at the Faxx Building, Dunantstraat 1. Please feel free to join us for some good music, art, a speech, Vedett and a BBQ. Our alderman of culture Marjo Frenk will open the festival with Omnivoordracht, a sample speech written by Christiaan Weijts and annotated by Boef en de Gelogeerde Aap. This speech is the ultimate speech, written for all audiences at all places.
We’ll also open our Open Source Expo. For the Open Source Expo we made a call for Artists to send in work. We have had an overwhelming amount of responses. Amateurs as well as professionals are enthusiastic to participate in this event. No committee, no exclusion of artists, no quality assessment, everything is permitted. You decide what you do or don’t like! Traditional painting next to conceptual, video-installation next to ceramics. Prepare for a visual overload!
After that we kick off with Play Me I’m Yours by Luke Jerram. During Incubate Tilburg will be full with 101 street piano’s. Festival artist Matthew Ship will kick off by playing some tunes. 50 kids from the Factorium music school will then go out to play the pianos in the city.
The music program for this Monday will kick off at Paradox, where Matthew Shipp will play, followed by the highly anticipated The War on Drugs. At the Cul de Sac we will present the Hollandse Nieuwe stage, which features Richie Dagger and The Chase Club. In the time schedule there is a TBA spot after this. This spot will be filled by none other than The Kik. All shows at Cul de Sace are free to visit. At the Kleine Zaal in 013 popcentre we’ll start with the indiefolk from Megafaun, followed by our Syrian friend Omar Souleyman (pictured above), who after rocking the hell out of Lowlands last month will play another exclusive show at Incubate 2011.
