    Music theatre company Oorkaan gives five performances of their show 'Glimpse' at the Kennedy Center in Washington.
    The performances of Oorkaan 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.

    Oorkaan - 'Glimpse'
    Oorkaan presents their theatre production 'Glimpse' aimed at audiences ages 2 and up.
    11-12 January 2020 | Terrace Gallery
