1984. A country somewhere in the future.

The Party led by Big Brother controls everything and everyone. Every step you take is monitored by cameras. Every statement you make is closely watched.

Winston works at the Ministry of Truth to rewrite and rewrite history in line with the Party’s vision. Increasingly, he feels resistance to the system he must serve. Cautiously, he starts looking for like-minded people. But who can you trust? In the end, only love seems to be a way out, but is it really so?

“Freek Vielen knows better than anyone how to transform world literature into exciting theater. More relevant than ever, now that young people are throwing their whole lives up for grabs on social media every day.” – Gregory | Curator Jonge Harten

Stay with the trouble


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.

physical theater


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 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!
