Dutch Performing Arts activities over 2017 in retrospectWe are almost reaching the end of 2017. Let’s have a quick look back at this year full of great opportunities for Dutch performing artists to present themselves at international festivals, conferences and other key events.Visitor programmes
Together with our partners and with support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, in 2017 Dutch Performing Arts hosted 13 international delegate programmes in close cooperation with Dutch festivals. From jazz and improvised music during the SummerJazzCycleTour to innovative productions at Theatre Festival Boulevard. Most professionals came from Europe, many of these from neighbouring countries, but we also welcomed guests from the USA, China and Canada.
International focus programmes
The multi-year cooperation of Dutch Performing Arts and the well-known Italian festival Romaeuropa resulted in the presentation of several Dutch theatre, dance and children’s theatre companies. More than 15 Dutch artists and companies were presented to international audiences at the Flemish Theater aan Zee Festival and the British Sick! Festival.
Going Dutch & Dutch Performing Arts | En France
In 2017 we continued our Going Dutch multi-year project for jazz in the United Kingdom, as well as the Dutch Performing Arts | En France project for theatre and dance. In France, in close cooperation with the Dutch Embassy in Paris, we worked together with Festival d’Avignon, Montpellier Danse, the Rencontres choréographiques internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis, and many other prestigious festivals and venues. In the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland we supported and promoted tours by Dutch musicians and ensembles in association with the Jazz Promotion Network (JPN), at the venues and festivals of JPN members such as Manchester Jazz Festival, Glasgow Jazz Festival and Gateshead International Jazz Festival.
During Jazzahead in Bremen, Germany, and this year’s Womex in Katowice, Poland, we promoted Dutch jazz and world music and represented over 150 Dutch delegates by means of a joint promotional stand, network receptions, trade dinners and presentations.
Research & Networking
Representatives of Dutch Performing Arts were present at important meetings and conferences all over the world, networking and exploring opportunities for Dutch performing artists and groups at events such as International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY), the European Jazz Conference, UTR, the International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA) festival, and IETM. In autumn 2017 we commissioned Nieuw Geneco to research opportunities for Dutch composers on the international stage. Nieuw Geneco’s delegates visited the SWR Donaueschinger Musiktage and the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) conference.
International promotion of pop music
In 2017 Dutch Performing Arts delegated the international promotion of Dutch pop, urban and dance genres to the Popcoalitie. The Popcoalitie has launched Dutch Music Export, which is funded by Buma Cultuur and the Performing Arts Fund NL / Dutch Performing Arts.
