Delft sattelite town Holland Dance Festival07 May 2015
The forthcoming edition of the Holland Dance Festival, 28th of January until February 20th 2016, will also be coming to Delft. The directors of Theater de Veste and Holland Dance have agreed to make this possible. The audience can look forward to an exciting collaboration, which will lead to a presentation of national and international productions in February 2016.
Artistic director of the Holland Dance Festival Samuel Wuersten: “A collaboration that touches. As a festival we strive to make the positive power of dance accessible. This is why our collaboration with Theatre de Veste is so accurate: together we want to put people into motion and present to our audience the best dance has to offer.” Already in the forthcoming theatreseason the audience can look forward to whirling dance from New Zealand and the national premier of the toptalented dancers of the future. How the collaboration will develop will be announced in the forthcoming months.
“This festival is an A brand”
Theatre-director Jan Bartels: “I’ve always said: if you do something, you got to do it right. This also reflects on our danceprogramme. Besides cities like The Hague and Rotterdam, Theatre de Veste really stands out from the crowd. This is why I’m so proud of the collaboration with the Holland Dance Festival. They are a party of measure and this partnership is an important step for us to deepen our specialism.” This match is part of the plan Theatre the Veste follows, by carefully selecting A-brands to present to the (Delft based) audience.
After a succesfull period of pre-sales for friends from Theatre de Veste, ticket sales for the upcoming theatre season 2015/2016 have started in the beginning of May. Check out the Holland Dance performances on their website.
