Review of GLOW International Light Art Festival

review and pictures by Mélanie Magnier

17 November 2018. tíc members met at the Tilburg station to take the train together to go to Eindhoven and discover GLOW, the International Light Art festival.

Right out of the station, the Student Hotel was animated on a facade by a projected video.

Then, we began a tour in the city centre, where we could admire different video projections showcasing this year’s theme of “Shadows and Light” including the Catharina church, the Philips Tower of Light or the Immersive Decelerator on the buildings of the Markt place.

There were also different journeys in shopping centres, such as the Heuvel, with bright objects inside or outside.

It was a nice discovery!

Review of the Tilburg Ghost Tour!

By Tanya Krupiy

31 October 2018. I enjoyed the Tilburg Ghost Tour. We had a nice start at the Wijnbar Cru. Jessica brought cool Halloween headbands and glasses so we began with a spooky start. She also brought candy. Some of us felt childhood memories return as we ate the candy.

The guide wore a historic costume and spoke in Dutch. For those of us who have not mastered Dutch, there were English language recordings of the tour.

The tour was very informative about the history of Tilburg. We learned about injustices, the abuse of power and why Tilburg has fewer historical buildings than many other cities.

The tour led me and others to reflect on serious matters. It was very interesting. So there was a mix of everything during this event.

Fontys Academy of Circus and Performance Art review

by Mala Raman

Graduates of Fontys Academy of Circus and Performance Art presented their group show “Wake the Dog” in which they connected their circus skills with dance and theatre. The performance was directed and produced by the students and coached by Stefan Hort (Switzerland).

Entering the theater, a group of 9 performers were already “on” and interacting with the audience members as individuals found their seats. One participant was sitting on the side of the hall singing a French song and playing the guitar. The students gave off a vaudeville vibe before the show and that continued throughout the performance beginning with a group dance.

According to my fellow TIC members (because I had no clue), it seems the acting/theater portion of the show symbolized how people have been trained to behave according to societal norms, responding to events in their daily lives in a Pavlovian manner. The point of the performance (I think) was that we must break free of our boxes and open our eyes to what is happening in the greater scheme of life, in other’s words, we must wake the dog.

Long theatrical dialogues and diatribes (complete with dog hoods) were punctuated by short bursts of circus skills. There was an annoying dog barking sound track with ‘house’ style background music that was played intermittently signalling the group to begin “dancing” again. I could have done without seeing that exact dance 20 times during the performance.

On the bright side, what there was to see of the circus acts looked impressive and difficult. The acts included the static and dance trapeze, tightwire, Chinese pole, rope and partner acrobatics.  It’s clear that these students have worked hard at their chosen craft and it was nice to see the end result of their years of study. I just wish I had been able to witness more of their actual talents.

Match review! Willem II vs. Roda JC

by Andrew Kelly

A visit to Willem II is becoming an annual occurrence for TIC and I must say we need to keep doing it, as they always win!!

It was a great turnout of 14 people and probably 50% of our group had never seen Willem II play live. After finding our places and singing the Williem II song, I would like to say, at this point, it was already really, really cold! The game began!!

There was a minute silence to commemorate an old player of Willem II & Roda who had passed away a few days earlier. It really showed how people can come together and have respect for the game.

And then, after only 14 minutes, Willem II made the first and only goal of the game. I am afraid to say the quality of football was not the best, but for a price tag of 8 euro a ticket, you can’t beat it. Roda never gave up and did fight for the ball resulting in two yellow cards being given; one for Willem II and one for Roda.

It’s always a great day out, but just don’t think you are going to see Barcelona, but of course you can always be pleasantly surprised.
