Thanks for Being Here: two reviews, both with four stars


‘Thanks for Being Here’ by Ontroerend Goed, coming to Utrecht soon as part of SPRING, received very good reviews from both NRC and DeMorgen after its premiere on May 3rd in Gent.

Read the reviews in Dutch below!


Everyone is seen here: the performance ‘Thanks for Being’ Here offers a sweet ode to the audience. ★★★★☆

“Thus, Ontroerend Goed has created a performance that is audience-friendly in the broadest sense of the word. A sweet gift, tailor-made for the spectator every night. You can hardly do anything but accept it with a smile.”

NRC, Amber Wiznitzer, May 6, 2024


Radically hopeful: the audience becomes performer in ‘Thanks for Being Here’. ★★★★☆

“In Thanks for Being Here, the audience plays the main role. Ontroerend Goed have made theatrical mindgames their trademark, but which meaning hides underneath this ingenious hall of mirrors?”

“That is what this ‘thank you’ from the audience is ultimately about: the recognition of the political potential of a theater hall.”

DeMorgen, Evelyne Coussens, May 6, 2024
