Dutch Performing Arts is a programme that promotes Dutch music, theatre and dance on the international stage. The programme is powered by the Performing Arts Fund NL.

As this newsletter is the last of 2017, we want to take this opportunity to provide an overview of the past year. This year Dutch Performing Arts and its partners hosted 13 international delegate programmes during Dutch festivals, and represented over 150 Dutch delegates via umbrella stands, receptions, trade dinners, and presentations at events such as Jazzahead and Womex. Another great collaboration we continued this year is with Romaeuropa, presenting Dutch theatre, children’s theatre and dance at this Italian arts festival. Furthermore, more than 15 Dutch artists and groups were presented to an international audience at the Belgian Theater aan Zee and the British Sick! Festival. Read the recap of 2017 here. We want to thank all the partners we collaborated with, as it is owing to them that all these activities were a great success.
