The 12th edition of the TodaysArt.NL festival, September 23 + 24, 2016.

With a few solid nights of rest behind us – ample time for reflection – we’re STILL basking in the warm glow of TodaysArt 2016. For two days and two nights, the Spuiplein, Theater aan het Spui, the Filmhuis Den Haag and Pulchri Studio were jam-packed with throngs of curious, adventurous and open-minded spectators eagerly and voraciously consuming our festival programme.

The energy and the atmosphere were incredible. We honestly couldn’t have dared dream for more. The rousing response to Hiroaki Umeda’s opening Intentional Particle and the dancing ovation to an initially seated, but incredibly infectious Pantha du Prince show. The crowd swarming Myriam Bleau after soft revolvers, and the stirring and attentive appreciation of everything from Klara Lewis to Limpe Fuchs, the debates, discussion and protests on the Spuiplein and two brimming performances of the world premiere of Entropy. The dizzying Footwork frenzy sandwiched between punishing sets by SØS Gunver Ryberg and Paula Temple, and the sweltering body music of our new favorite Charlotte Bendiks. They’re all moments and memories we will cherish fondly.

This may have been a slightly more intimate festival, but TodaysArt 2016 will go into the books as the edition that shocked, surprised and blew us away. For that, we’d like to thank the artists, the crew, the volunteers and, most of all, our audience. We can’t wait to welcome you back next year!
