UIT FESTIVAL DEN HAAG
Don’t go home after the Embassy Festival as the weekend will be jam-packed with other cultural festivities at UIT Festival Den Haag! The Embassy Festival will from 8pm transition into the UIT Festival Den Haag. Jeangu Macrooy (NLD/SUR) will kick-off those festivities.
The cultural connoisseurs of We Are Public will provide culture pitches with must-see tips for your cultural season. Several theaters in The Hague will open their doors and present comedy (i.a. Rundfunk in Diligentia), dance (i.a. The Statement and Mutual Comfort in the Lucent Dans Theater), film (Lindy Hop Experience with the documentary Alive and Kicking & the Hague Hoppers Dance School in front of Filmhuis Den Haag), dance (i.a. Samir Calixto & Cello8ctet Amsterdam, Noam Vazana in Korzo), music (i.a. Alex Roeka in de Nieuwe Kerk and Cesar Zuiderwijk and Koen Herfst in Theater de Vaillant). The UIT Nacht will end in de Koninklijke Schouwburg with an afterparty in cooperation with District25.
On Sunday 3 September the UIT Festival will continue on the Lange Voorhout with a Culture Market, where 100 cultural institutions will present themselves. Four stages will be showing previews of the upcoming cultural season with Stef Bos, Braz, Stephanie Struijk (Stevie Ann), Rilan & the Bombardiers, I’m a Soulman, Kiki Schippers (winner of the Annie M.G. Schmidtprijs 2017) and Harde Handen (with Loes Luca). Performing on the Den Haag Danst stage are i.a. HNDRD, the new dance collective of choreographer Min Hee Bervoets (judge and choreographer on So You Think You Can Dance) and DeDDDD. The Cultuurankers will collectively present themselves on their own stage in the buzzing festival village. And there’s more, besides the performances on the Lange Voorhout. There will be an open day at i.a. Diligentia, Koninklijke Schouwburg, de Nieuwe Kerk, het Filmhuis Den Haag (with filmposter-outlet) and de Centrale Bibliotheek (book sale). Diligentia will bring movement and joy with comedians and songbirds (Mylou Frencken, Arie Koomen & Edo Brunner, Anne Neuteboom, Jochen Otten and Enge Buren). Get ready to be dazzled by Eric Vaarzon Morel, the best flamenco guitarist in the Netherlands, Eric Vloeimans, trumpeter and composer, who finds the term ‘jazz’ too limited to define his music and top-actor Gijs Scholten van Aschat. They will treat visitors to a preview of their show Duende. In de Nieuwe Kerk classical pianist Saskia Lankhoorn and jazz pianist Wolfert Brederode will spark movement and uproar with their Musings from the Lowlands.
