FASHIONCLASH presents: DRESS TO PROTEST by Giovanni Brand & Eliane Zwart


FASHIONCLASH teamed up with Museumnacht Maastricht for the second time. For this years edition FASHIONCLASH will present the DRESS TO PROTEST project at Boekhandel Dominicanen (Dominicanen churchbookstore).

On 12 April 2019, we will be protesting in style and use our freedom to speak, write and dance to make our own manifest. For this project FASHIONCLASH commissioned Toneelacademie Maastricht (Institute of Performing Arts Maastricht) students Giovanni Brand and Eliane Zwart to curate and direct an evening with cross-overs between fashion, theatre and music based on the concext of 'dress to protest'. 

You can expect all kind of performances from spoken word to DJ sets. Come over and experience the exclusive day that the Boekhandel Dominicanen will change into a pop-up ‘protest’ nightclub. 

To join this event, you need to have a ticket for the Museumnacht Maastricht route.

The doors will open at 8pm and will close at 1am.
