    Dutch Performing Arts and the Kennedy Center collaborate on 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.
    Five Dutch music, theatre and dance companies from the Netherlands will perform in 2019-2020 at the Kennedy Center in Washington. Presenting their unique and high-caliber work for young audiences are: Woest, BonteHond, Maas Theater & Dance, Oorkaan, and De Dansers.

    Season-long Dutch focus
    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.

    Programme
    The brand-new partnership with Dutch Performing Arts results in the presentation of five exciting music, theatre and dance productions from the Netherlands, in a total of 56 shows:

    Woest - 'Balancing Bodies'
    dance | 9+
    31 October - 2 November 2019 | Terrace Gallery

    BonteHond - 'GET 'M'
    theatre | 3+
    2-3 November 2019 | the REACH

    Maas Theater & Dance - 'EGG-tion HERO'
    theatre | 3+
    9-10 November 2019 | the REACH

    Oorkaan - 'Glimpse'
    music | 2+
    11-12 January 2020 | Terrace Gallery

    De Dansers - 'Pokon'
    dance | 4+
    24-26 April 2020 | Family Theater

    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.

    Never Grow Up! is a joint effort of Dutch Performing Arts, the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York, Eye International, Netherlands Film Fund, Cinekid, Dutch Foundation for Literature, and DutchCulture.
