Winternachten 2 offers you a choice of programmes in five venues in one theatre. With you ticket you have access to all programmes. With literature, film, music, and dozens of guests from The Netherlands and abroad. The evening opens with an interview with the American bestselling author Jonathan Safran Foer. The programmes that follow include guests like Ramsey Nasr, Joris Luyendijk, Ernst Reijseger, Antjie Krog, Joke van Leeuwen, Marjolijn Februari, Boi Antoin, Junot Diaz, Karin Amatmoekrim and many others. An international programme with writers from countries like Surinam, Bonaire and St Eustatius, Zimbabwe, South Africa, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Belgium and The Netherlands.

Art disorders, entertainment confirms. Wasn't it like that? Or doesn't that rule altogether apply? Has the world ended up in such a chaos by crisis, migration and terror that writers now seek order? On Saturday night Winternachten asks writers how disorder penetrates their work and what their answers are in questions of change and chaos. Do they, like Jonathan Safran Foer and Petina Gappah from Zimbabwe, have to go in search of the underlying order? Or should they make way for chaos in their work? Does the writer have to show the world in all its confusion? Or does the writer have a social task? As a kind of surgeon?
