    Recap: Dutch TYA at IPAY Showcase 2019

    What better place to showcase some of the finest Dutch performing arts for young audiences than IPAY Showcase? Dutch Performing Arts proudly powered the participation of eight theatre and dance companies from the Netherlands, who presented their productions for ages 2+ at the international conference in Philadelphia.
    Dutch Performing Arts was present at IPAY Showcase from 15-19 January 2019 together with representatives of companies Het Nationale Theater/NTjong, Theater Terra, Meneer Monster, Theatergroep Kwatta, Maas Theater & Dance, Simone de Jong Company, plan d-/Andreas Denk, and De Dansers.

    The Dutch performances were supported by Dutch Performing Arts, the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York and Assitej Netherlands, in collaboration with DutchCulture. The programme was part of Never Grow Up!, a year-long focus in the United States on Dutch film, literature and performing arts for young audiences.

    Check out our recap of Showcase 2019.
