The Parade 
Night Shift at Opera Ghent
Season 3
In the framework of Night Shift in Opera Ghent, Bebe Books joined forces with the open cultural platform Manoeuvre, located in the Ghentian neighbourhood Rabot, Gent. In collaboration, they made banners by hand, inspired by the queer history of opera. Together with the people of Manoeuvre who co-created the banners, the collective ZUIDPARK, who were on the Night-Shift line-up too, and the brass quintet of Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, they festively open the programmation of REST with a parade. When the parade enters the space of REST, it transforms into an evening of spoken word, music and performances.
