To twerk or not to twerk?

In 2013 the white pop star Miley Cyrus performed a so-called ‘twerk-choreography’ together with her African American dancers at the Video Music Awards. Their booty shaking to heavy beats caused public indignation, but at the same time, plenty of people were happy to twerk along with Miley. So what was all the fuss about? Pop culture often features non-Western dance forms. But where do they originally come from, and is it acceptable to randomly use these influences in pop culture? In Situation mit Doppelgänger, the theatre maker Oliver Zahn and the cultural anthropologist Julian Warnerconstantly changes the context of familiar dance forms.

A special festival meal every day!

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.


Performances with the heart, of course, are our favourites. They can seize you by the throat. Afterwards, there is a good chance of some added ‘joy du vivre’ and/or a melancholy aftertaste.


Performances with the cloud aren’t easily grasped. They tickle your imagination, they speak to unexplored parts of your brain and make you look at the world in a whole new way.


The performances with the lightbulb are the most concrete of the festival. You can find some new insights into the inner workings of people and the world.


This one speaks for itself. Attention: there is a possibility of anything in between a chuckle and screaming with laughter.

Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar 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!
