Dutch Performing Arts will continue its organisation of visitors programmes around and with some of the most important Dutch festivals in 2018, to highlight the huge variety of Dutch performers and companies. In its collaboration with festivals and organisations, mainly Dutch festivals, Dutch Performing Arts gives attention to several genres, from music to children’s theatre, and from music theatre to dance.
