From disconnect to … re-CONNECT
On 12 March 2020, the curtain abruptly fell on all theatre- and dance performances in the Netherlands. The resulting lockdown also hugely impacted the graduation generation of the Academy for Theatre and Dance. Disconnected from their ultimate love – the podium, the audience and the applause – they have nonetheless continued to work under the motto ‘Creativity knows no lockdown!’
Surprise yourself! You’ll be amazed and inspired by the special presentations of our students during the live, online graduation festival re-CONNECT. Check out the programme for 26 June to 12 July.
Extra: live talk show before and after the performance
An enthusiastic talk show host will welcome the online public live from our stylish re-CONNECT-studio and interview young makers. Subsequently, you’ll watch a production together: a livestream from an auditorium in the academy or a previously edited production.
After performance talk? Connect live with the maker!
After every performance the talk show host chats with the maker and you, as phone-in member of the audience. You’re free to ask anything. Of course applause is also welcome!
