After the show, we'll talk about their collaboration process and get to know them more in our casual Q&A session.

Thanks a lot to our partner dB's!
'Culture Shock' is a pilot for a sub-project of De Voorkamer where artists with diverse backgrounds are invited to collaborate for intercultural and interdisciplinary activities. The program has three aspects of nights from professionals with their existing sets ('Culture Shock - Band' or 'Solo', professionals that meet each other for the first time 'Culture Shock - Match Up' and moments for the audience to share knowledge and talent themselves by joining workshops and improvisation evenings like ‘On The Spot’.
'Culture Shock - Match Up’ evenings are experimental collaborative evenings around the theme of music where two creatives are brought together for the first time to connect their talents and create a new outcome.
