Dutch and British playwrights reflect on shared colonial history

By Koen Guiking It started with an idea to bring two Dutch and two British playwrights together, all with family roots outside of Europe, in countries that were once colonised, to reflect on this colonial history and to what extend it had shaped their identities. They would all come together, talk about their backgrounds, share ideas, and subsequently each would write a short script for a play. But the project, called Boom!, gradually grew larger after the initial seed for an idea was planted in late 2019. There are now seven playwrights involved, building on their original short scripts, working with actors and technicians to bring their plays to life. Boom! is funded by Dutch Performing Arts and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the UK.

Dutch Performing Arts’ international promotional activities in 2017 & 2018 led to new relevant contacts and the consolidation of ties with existing contacts. There is a greater interest in and awareness of performing arts from the Netherlands. Although Dutch Performing Arts cannot directly affect the extent to which parties actually book performing arts from the Netherlands, half of the Dutch respondents who participated in a professionals’ programme reported seeing an increase in bookings.
