    Disarmament Need Ontwapening

Hold Your Horses is a dance concert about longing for something to hold on to.

The Dancers tell their story with twelve hands, including accompanying bodies, and a couple guitars. We see hands grasping, mis reaching, touching, taking off, falling down and plucking guitar strings. We see passion and distance. We see the passage of time, fixed in a strict rhythm. We see people, sometimes close to each other, sometimes endlessly far away. We don’t see horses, although we do feel them. We don’t see the capricious world that we can’t get a grip on. Though we can feel it slipping through our fingers.

Hold Your Horses is about the urge to hold on to something or someone, in a world that is becoming increasingly elusive. Six performers bring this play to life with dedication and musicality. Hold Your Horses has a spectacular, acrobatic movement-language, but never loses its human sensitivity. As one body, the dancers move in a continuous flow, propelled by Guy Corneille’s live music full of compelling guitar tracks and gripping songs.

Choose your battles

JONGE HARTEN VIEWING GUIDE

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?

Disarmament

The theme of Jonge Harten 2022 is disarmament. War, conflict, climate crisis and an insatiable appetite for growth make the world an increasingly unsafe place. We hear stories about fear of weapons and violence and the fear of daring to be vulnerable. So there are quite a few challenges in 'our time'. Who has the answers and solutions? We do! Are we going to defend ourselves or do we accept the situation we find ourselves in? And are we going to adapt to the inescapable reality that things have to change? Let's choose our battles! With this edition of Jonge Harten we challenge you to focus on what is really valuable and necessary to you. It is up to you, how you do this.

FIELD

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.

FIELD

Future

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?

Need

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?

Ontwapening

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.

STAGE

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!
