What is heritage worth? And how can we stop important aspects of Dutch dance being lost or forgotten? At this year’s festival, the Dance Museum takes the form of an exclusive catalogue, a permanent record. The publication walks you through three exceptional exhibitions that are all dedicated to the ‘forgotten movement’.
At Kasteel [castle] Wijlre there is a 3D painting in the Hedge House art pavilion and a solo exhibition by the visual artist Peter Struycken (The Hague, 1939). His work has often inspired extraordinary dance projects. In collaboration with the Dutch Dance Festival, the castle estate will present videos of works by the choreographers De Châtel, Karin Post and Ton Simons, for which Struycken designed the set and lighting.
