SPRING performing arts festival
SPRING brings together contemporary performances by (inter)national choreographers and theatre makers. Join the festival in Utrecht this May and enjoy a variety of creative wonders.
SPRING is a festival delivering 10 days of dance, theatre and more. The festival works in combination with the SPRING Academy allows those interested in performing arts to truly discover what happens behind the scenes. Enjoy the performances while discover how they're put together, and why. The festival targets students and young people; those who are already involved in performing arts.
What to expect
From an amazing art extravaganza to a unique interpretation of a Greek tragedy and from washing your hands of all guilt to an all-out theatre binge!
SPRING compiles a varied and daring programme every year, featuring both national and international artists. Visual art, music shows, workshops and debates the creative groups bring new worlds to life.
This years programme includes the latest work by one of the rising stars of the international dance world: Marlene Monteiro Freitas. Responsible for the biggest hit of SPRING 2015, this remarkable Cape Verdean choreographer is returning to Utrecht with her own, unique version of Euripides’ tragedy Bachantes. Be prepared to witness an intense and stunning piece of dance and music theatre.
Massimo Furlan - Blue Tired Heroes
Oneka von Schrader (AT/ NL) - Panda Express
Panda Express stimulates all the senses and adds new meaning to the term ‘experimenting’. This performance is an installation, tea ceremony and group choreography all rolled into one, with Bach as its endlessly meandering soundtrack. Onstage, the performers, objects and liquids are perpetually in motion. From drinking tea to passing water, Panda Express navigates its own course between the sacred and the profane. Oneka von Schrader has developed a vocabulary of her own in a very short amount of time, playing with taboos, conventions and expectations. With Panda Express she transforms the theatre from a place to watch into a ‘sensorium’: a place to taste, feel, smell, and let go.
Oneka von Schrader initially developed the first phase of Panda Express as her graduation project from SNDO Amsterdam.
