    Role model

When is your life a spectacle?

‘I’m always waiting. I wait until my everyday life finally comes to an end, and real life begins. Until something or other reveals itself to me.’

While the audience waits for the ‘spectacle’ to start, the performance unfolds. Waiting creates a situation where speed is no longer relevant. It forces us to take a step back and to focus on the situation in which we find ourselves at that moment. This goes for Anna, Stan and Mats, as well as for the audience. It gives us a new opportunity to look around us, but also to look at ourselves. This will lead to a spectacle, in a place where we’d never expected it.

The combination of different disciplines, songs, and both spoken and sung lyrics results in a dynamic presentation that is typical for Club NEL. Expect a relatively small production that will have a major impact.

Club NEL is made up of a group of young makers who develop projects outside the Randstad (the urban agglomeration in the west of the Netherlands). The core members of Club NEL are Anna Raadsveld (maker and artistic director), Vyne de Ruyter (business manager), Stan Vreeken (maker and musician), Mats Voshol (musician) and Lisa Frenkel (researcher and coordinator of side programme). Most of the makers of Club NEL have their roots in the north of the Netherlands. They feel connected to the space and the freedom that this region has to offer, as well as to its audience, that is interested in new forms of theatre in unusual places. 



Future is Coming

The subtitle of Jonge Harten 2021 is Future is Coming

Shape it, be it, own it!


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?


No matter what: the future lies ahead of us. And we can influence what our future will be like. What is it you hope for the future? How do you contribute to this? And how do you relate to the future? Will we continue in the way we used to, when we leave the pandemic behind us, or will we radically change our behaviour?

Laat je stem horen!


It’s important that our imagination makes it to the stage, especially now. It’s time to start thinking about how we want to continue after the pandemic, what we want to change and how we want to recover. How are we actually doing? And how are you doing? What is it we want to tell the world? And what does the world want to tell us? Which topics should be on the agenda?


Raise Your Voice

What you have to say is important. The world needs your voice. Raise your voice, just like the makers and performers do in these performances.

Role model

Who are you a role model for? And how do you want to communicate that? Who are your role models? Which voices do you think should be heard more? Let our (theatre) makers guide you to find your voice and let it be heard. Let them be a role model for you during our festival and be inspired.


Performances for and by young people on stage.

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!
