In the sea, Tursiops truncatus [dolphin] reaches an average age of twenty years. On springy, beer-soaked stages much older. For thirty years, De Dolfijntjes have been the terror of every tent rental company and contents insurance company. Like crazy shamans, they play a gritty mix of rock & roll, funk, punk, smartlap, noise, polka, disco, jazz and blues. The singing accordionists/actors Wim Opbrouck and Wim Willaert are flanked by the fuzzy horn duo Fernandez and De Maeseneer and rock icon Serge Feys, former keyboard player of TC Matic - the connoisseur knows enough. Boulevard is welcoming this musical juggernaut for the fourth time since 1997. And with good reason.

I, Phone is a moving portrait of contemporary man in relation to the smartphone. The multitasking of scrolling, apping, taking a screenshot, swiping, etc., accumulates into a virtuoso movement performance. An analogue body surfs through time and space on a non-stop wave of information. Gradually, man and technology merge and a portrait of homo cellularis emerges.

Next year, it will be 150 years since slavery was officially abolished in Surinam and the Antilles. But until 1873, slavery was practised under state supervision. This year, Keti Koti (which means 'broken chains') was also celebrated and commemorated in 's-Hertogenbosch. For here too, the effects of the suffering caused by slavery are present. The foundation Wi Eygi Fasi, which is currently being set up, wants to enter into a dialogue to make people more aware of the slavery past and celebrate Caribbean culture and traditions. During Boulevard, the foundation will present itself and give an impetus to the 2023 programme.

There is a war in Europe. SPRING Festival, Theaterfestival Boulevard and Festival Cement invite you to join the urgent conversation about the role and obligations of art, artists and arts organizations in (international) communities that are inflicted by war. The latest Russian State aggression on Ukraine is a wake-up call and shows the direct importance of such conversation. The collaborating festivals initiate a possibility to meet in ways that go beyond talking. The goal is to connect and activate already existing networks on the short term, while taking the awareness of a long-term agenda into account.
