A multidisciplinary dance performance about the importance of loving, with the focus on the experience of love. 

Peach Season is a multidisciplinary dance performance in which two dancers, two poets and a composer create a physical, visual and auditory representation of a love relationship. The techniques used are inspired by ASMR therapy.

“Love stories have always inspired me. My whole life can be divided into seasons of relationships and the input that these interactions brought to my sense of my “self” and “the world. My, and others, love stories are important because no matter how much the social climate changes and with it our expectations of love, the essence of love stories somehow remain the same. With Peach Season, I want to return to this essence. I want to give people the feeling of falling in love.” – Gaja Caruso

About the cast

Gaja Caruso is a dancer, dance teacher and theater maker. She was born and raised in the forests of Slovenia, spent several years in Belgium and Hungary, and finally found her niche in Groningen. Here she creates new performances and teaches her own unique interpretation of movement: BodyLab. She is part of the Station Noord program and is supported by partners Club Guy & Roni and Grand Theatre.

Yvonne Zeegers is a dramaturg and writer, currently based in Amsterdam. In her work she collects stories, theories, images, songs and dreams. Always looking for new connections between the different sources, resulting in different outcomes: performance, theater, poetry and essay. She is currently attached to the Bachelor of Creative Writing at ArtEZ Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Arnhem.

Martin Rombouts (1992) is a writer, theater maker and performer. His work is an exploration of the forces that make the present what it is: money, power, randomness, story and love. In February 2023, he won De Slimste Mens.

Lin van Kaam is a dancer originally from Norway. A collaboration with Club Guy & Roni landed him (temporarily) in Groningen. He worked with Lunatics and Poets and Mohammed Yusuf Boss on the performances that were part of “Club Guy & Roni Invites.

Rik van den Heuvel (1988) is a composer and music producer. After graduating from the conservatory in 2017 in composition and music production, he works on various projects in his studio at the Biotoop in Haren. The use of mostly acoustic instruments and field recordings gives his electronic productions an organic and human character.

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!
