Marc Maris is our new general director!

Marc Maris (1987) is the new general director of foundation Jonge Harten, the organisation behind the annual Jonge Harten theatre-festival in Groningen.

From the first of December onwards Marga Kroodsma will be succeeded by Marc. Marc grew up in the picturesque Norg (Drenthe), and studied Arts, Culture and Media at the RUG in Groningen. As artistic member of the Nederlandse Dansdagen (Dutch Dancing Days) and as dramaturg he worked with a diverse amount of choreographers and theatre makers. Within this function he was in part responsible for the programming, and his own projects for the dancing festival. Before Nederlandse Dansdagen Marc was involved with Festival Cement, SPRING and Zeeland Nazomerfestival (Zeeland’s after summer festival). Yet, now he is coming back to the North! Together with the team of Jonge Harten he will make hearts beat with a higher intensity and, if necessary, make them skip.
