In The Netherlands
Specifically for toddlers, the Netherlands has been home to the Twee Turven Hoog festival for over fifteen years. Here, Ingrid Wolff presents her high-quality baby and toddler theatre, brought from all over the world. She moreover offers (young) Dutch makers, musicians, choreographers and artists the opportunity to create new work for this age group.
Every year, Tweetakt festival presents the most striking Dutch and international dance, music and theatre performances. With Petra Blok at the helm, the festival brings together progressive, experimental, controversial and highly successful performances. The festival not only serves a broad and young audience but also provides a platform for theatre makers to meet and exchange ideas. Furthermore, for each edition young makers are invited to create new work (e.g. Anneke Sluiters, Phi Nguyen).
Pop Arts Festival is an initiative of Theater Bellevue, De Krakeling and De Brakke Grond and presents the latest in the field of puppetry and objecttheater from the Netherlands and abroad.
During its eleven-day run (in September in Amsterdam) the National Dutch Theatre Festival (TF) will be presenting the best theatre shows of the season, handing out numerous awards including those for the best actors in the Netherlands, showcasing the latest successful developments in the performing arts, taking the lead in the debate on the role the theatre plays in our society, and blurring the boundaries between the different stage disciplines. TF Young presents the best for young audiences.
