    Youth theatre company BonteHond gives four performances of their show 'Get 'M' at the Kennedy Center in Washington.
    The performances of BonteHond are part of a collaboration between Dutch Performing Arts and the Kennedy Center, resulting in a season-long Dutch focus that brings award-winning and accomplished work from the Netherlands to families and student audiences in Washington. The Dutch focus kicks off in October and November 2019 and will continue in January and April 2020.

    Breaking theatrical boundaries
    The Dutch focus programme showcases the best in dance, music and theatre for young audiences. Each company/piece has been carefully selected because they break theatrical boundaries in some way and contain a style that cannot be captured or replicated in work for young audiences traditionally coming from the United States.

    BonteHond - 'GET 'M'
    BonteHond presents their theatre production 'GET 'M' aimed at audiences ages 3 and up.
    2-3 November 2019 | the REACH

    Part of Never Grow Up!
    The Dutch focus at the Kennedy Center is part of Never Grow up!. Throughout 2019 Never Grow Up! presents an abundance of Dutch film, literature and performing arts for young audiences in the United States. A wide range of work from the Netherlands will be presented and shared at festivals, conferences and other platforms, all representing a respect for young people and dedication to youth culture as an autonomous art form.
