The visual profile for NTGent is inspired by artistic director Milo Rau’s vision of a new theatre for the future. The first programme of the new season documents the slaughter of a lamb, representing the theatre’s opening play “Lam Gods” in which citizens from the city of Ghent are the actors representing individuals in Ghent’s famous medieval alterpiece from 1432 “Lam Gods” by the Van Eyck brothers.
Visually, the choice of gold is inspired by the historical theatre building, whilst the graffiti inspired logo represents the voices of the streets – empowerment and democracy.
NTGent (or Nederlands Toneel Gent) was founded in 1965 as the city theatre of Ghent.
