    Dance physical theater

A visual performance about longing, the yearning for an all-consuming unification and where you are also left battered.

We are in, and storming toward, great crises. As everything shifts, becomes more uncertain and nothing is what it seems, there is a hyper focus on love. Desire is the driving force in Charles Pas’ new visual dance performance Person Longing for Human. Three performers pursue desire in all its various forms. Dreaming of complete fusion and self-preservation, they explore the richness of love.

In a lustful choreography, the body is continuously possessed by Eros. A quest where both pain and happiness are felt simultaneously.

The battlefield of Person Longing for Human finds a plea for the unarmored approach to heady love and life. Why go into battle when you know in advance that you will be left broken?

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!

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!
