MUGEN

Fragments of a night during a constantly pounding techno beat

Mingus Kramer 

Location: Pllek

Dates:









duration of the performance: 30 min

“The beat of the music resonates in the infinity of the night. In that precise moment, he tries to grasp this limitless feeling.”  

“JOIN THE INFINITE RIDE OF REPETITIVE SOUND.”  

In MUGEN, Mingus translates his love for electronic music into a performance. Music as something you can escape into, but at the same time, something you can’t escape from. Finding peace in a chaotic setting.  

Euphoria, ecstasy, energy, escapism & loneliness. Finding disconnection in a search for connection. Confrontations with a loved one’s addiction. What he despises, but also seeks out in the music himself. Is this happiness, or is it escaping reality? 

Biography

Mingus Kramer graduated from the Utrecht School of the Arts in 2023. He acts, writes, directs, produces, and raps. Currently, his main focus is on acting and making music with his rap group Goed Nieuws. This Amsterdam-based multitalented artist gets energy from creating art with different artists from various disciplines. Connection, growth, and fun are central to his art-making process. What emerges from this is left to the dynamics. He wants to see opportunities and act on them; if he doesn’t see them, he creates them. Humorous, energetic, capricious, raw, pure, and occasionally challenging the status quo.
