Read: [contra – verse – us]

Contr (a / o) vers (e / u) s (2019) is the metamorphosis of a character who is on a journey. One that is radical, intense, yet hopeful and tender. The character remembers, that when she’s in the shadows, there must be light.

In this piece for dance- theatre, topics of freedom, identity, and belief are challenged through instinctive movement and behaviour. The delicate towers of identity that make up an individual, exist in an equilibrium between emancipation and incarceration, between the painting of the individual and the uniform. We risk the danger of piling too high, whilst dancing atop these swaying ivory towers. This performance is a transformation from delicate to dangerous.

“An extraordinary performance about the internal journey of a searching soul. Lore and Adam are a young creator duo who do not choose the easy theatrical path, but challenge you as an audience and bring you to the edge of your seat through their consistently complex artistic choices.” – Gregory | curator Jonge Harten

Jonge Harten offers a diverse program. But where do you start choosing? To clarify things somewhat, we have three main storylines that we are focusing on this year. You can see these lines throughout our program. So that you can easily choose which line suits you best and what you feel like doing at the moment. What are you going for?





FIELD was created to strengthen the bond with young talent and to give both the artists and the festival the opportunity to support people in the longer term and to make their “dreams” come true. We focus in particular on students who we feel (after conversations and performances) connect themselves as creators with the world beyond. In a conscious, critical and idiosyncratic way.

A program line in which we put creative young people on stage and in which you can participate in great masterclasses yourself. We ensure that you are pampered all day long and of course we close the day with a great party, by none other than Clash!

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!
