Artistic innovation and experimentation have been the Holland Festival’s key values since its founding in 1947. Every year in June, the festival showcases ground-breaking productions by artists from all across the world and new developments in the performing arts. From theatre, dance, music, musical theatre and opera to multi-disciplinary forms and cross-overs with the visual arts, digital art, photography and film.
Thanks to the reputation Holland Festival built for itself over more than seventy years, it is able to showcase and sometimes also aid in realising productions that could not be put on here otherwise. These oftentimes lead to unique, overwhelming and memorable experiences and (critical) reviews. Recent examples of this are aus LICHT, directed by Pierre Audi (2019, Karlheinz Stockhausen), The Head & The Load by William Kentridge (2019), Rito de Primavera by José Vidal & Compañia (2017) and Le encantadas… by Olga Neuwirth (2016). The Holland Festival wishes to be a catalyst of exceptional productions. It sees this as its role and strength.
