On 7 July 2020 Marjo van Schaik director (a.i.) handed out the first issue of the 300-page yearbook CONNECT 2020 to all graduates who cannot be at the re-CONNECT festival in Amsterdam. Symbolically she handed out an issue to Kevin Pieterse en Lisanne Bovée, who could be present.
Connect 2020 connects all graduating students of the Academy of Theatre and Dance. This edition contains stories, interviews, travels, internships and of course the performances of this special generation that graduated during corona times.
Watch the interview
CONNECT 2020 gives an honest insight into the “corona cut” within the graduation life of this generation.

We went back to the students - who previously told us about their graduation plans - for a second, post-lockdown interview: What impact did the new reality have on their artistic ideas? Read and experience this for yourself in CONNECT: creativity has no lockdown!
