    FIELD Textual Theater

A sharp piece of zeitgeist reflecting with humor and schwung on power, “the gray area” and how to deal with ingrained issues as a new generation.

A surprisingly warm afternoon in April. The sun shines softly in on the fourth floor of a stylishly decorated Amsterdam canal house. A well-dressed young man is quickly polishing his Joseph Klibansky. Although he makes a calm impression, his movements are sharp and adrift.

Downstairs, a young woman fastens her bicycle to a lamppost. She checks her eyeliner in the side mirror of a charging Tesla and walks up the gleaming steps with a straight back. The bell rings. The man, who has arrived to polish his framed opening speech from the last Book Ball, startles. That must be her. 

In Gaslight, Gatekeep, Girlboss, fast-rising young writer Tez Kobalt Weber and aspiring feminist journalist Lois battle activism, abuse of power and fear of the public pillory. A sharp piece of zeitgeist that reflects with humor and schwung on power, “the gray area” and how to deal with ingrained issues as a new generation.


About the creators

Raf Stekelenburg (2000) and Teuntje Post (1998) met at the pre-training program De Noorderlingen in Groningen. Here they found each other in a shared love for socially critical, linguistic plays, absurd types and dry humor. After a few years their paths parted as they began their studies at the Toneelschool in Utrecht (Raf) and Arnhem (Teuntje). Gaslight, Gatekeep, Girlboss is their first performance, and also their graduation work.

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.

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!


Textual Theater



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!
