1-4 September, Amsterdam
Dutch Performing Arts and ASSITEJ NL
This programme will take place within the context of TF Jong, an annual festival offering another chance to see the best youth theatre productions from the previous season. During this programme, we will take our guests to see shows in larger and smaller theatres in different neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. We will bring subjects and themes that mirror the diversity of performing arts for young audiences: from shows for the very young to performances for youngsters about gender and different cultural backgrounds.
