Opening: 60% Banana

Benjamin Monki Kuitenbrouwer

Before the party really gets started at all the locations there is a central opening to the festival. This time in the open air. The opening speech by our rector Pamela Habibović is followed by a circus conference, the right mix of Pleasure Art and Science.

19:00 – 19:30 / Location 2, Bouillonstraat 3, Large Garden

In 60% Banana, Benjamin Monki Kuitenbrouwer gives you an optimistic view on humanity in a brand-new format: a circus conference. An energetic acrobatic lecture, in which he uses his skills to tell the audience about the hopeful developments in the world. Using coloured elastic bands, he forms metres-high graphs between several poles. With data on extreme poverty, war victims and - among other things - population growth, Professor Monki swings, climbs and sways between his poles to make his point.
