What are you hiding? 

The choreography couple Lunatics and Poets combine dance and fashion. Two bodies meet in oversized coats. Their faces are invisible; their identity is anonymous. The human touch and the invisible are central features in this shadow world. If so much of what we are is determined by how other people see us, how do we relate to what we cannot see?

Festival Heart

We have a Festival Heart!! You can either drop by for a chat, for a dance or a drink. For inquiries, you can turn to our information point that is also located here. You can also purchase tickets here. All very convenient! Location of the Festival Heart is Oosterstraat 13a.

Stop by for some coffee or a drink!

Jonge Harten presents theatre makers who aren’t just good, but often young and unknown.

That is why there is a viewing guide to help you make a fitting choice from our extensive programme.

But pay mind: the viewing guide doesn’t deal in absolute truths. It doesn’t say that a performance is funny. Because how you experience a performance is a subjective thing and what you find funny, someone else might find tragic. That’s (and maybe also to safeguard ourselves a little bit) why you should take the viewing guide with a pinch of salt and use the viewing guide to get an idea of what possible effects the performance may have on you. We have identified four of these effects and each performance is marked with the icon of the effect we think will be the most fitting. And sometimes a second, as a side-effect.

#thesensorial

People will say they ‘watch’ theatre, but what about our other senses? Is watching all we do? What do you feel, smell or hear? We’d like to know. What happens if you fool around with your senses? What happens if you switch a number of senses off, or if you intensify others? Performances filed under  #thesensorial will awaken your senses! They will encourage you to experience the world in a different way. Which sense will you start off with?

#thesocial

Theatre isn’t always ‘fun’ (although our programme always includes a number of ‘fun’ shows), but all our shows offer food for thought. Our performances might make you feel uncomfortable, as they reflect the world in all its different shades. We challenge you to form your own personal view of the world. For us, taboo topics are the new mainstream. We would like to know what you think about certain topics that we believe are very important. This doesn’t always lead to an uncomplicated conversation, but we might get to get to know each other better afterwards. These shows are indicated by #thesocial.

Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar info@jongeharten.nl en vraag om nadere toelichting. Vermeld de titel van de voorstelling en waar je graag meer duidelijkheid over wilt hebben (is dit iets om met mijn vriend/vriendin naartoe te gaan? het is misschien wel grappig maar toch niet vulgair? dat soort vragen). De programmeurs van het festival geven je dan persoonlijk het verlossende antwoord!
