Experimental Dutch music at Mittelfestmusic

Experimental Dutch music at Mittelfest

For the second year running, performing arts festival Mittelfest presents the work of three Netherlands-based groups and artists in collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts. Scheduled to perform on 6-9 September in Cividale del Friuli, Italy are Akim Moiseenkov, Ikarai, and Tin Men and the Telephone — all Italian premieres.
Camiel Jansen (artistic director of Ikarai): "I'm so happy to be able to perform at this year's Mittelfest, especially during these unique times. When the festival director got in touch with me about a possible performance, pre-corona, I was already excited to play our concert there, but now it has turned into an even more special experience. This could not have been achieved without the help of Dutch Performing Arts. We're thankful for how all of this played out!"
