Programmers' breakfast

Prolonged due to success: ND2024 programmers' breakfast 

The Nederlandse Dansdagen landscape is rich and diverse, with experienced choreographers and new creators in all different styles striving for a place in theatres. For dance programmers, this vast supply often makes it difficult to keep an overview, while financial constraints force them to make sharp choices that are at odds with this richness and diversity.

Because these are dilemmas shared by many dance programmers, a new tradition was started at last year's Nederlandse Dansdagen: the Programmers' Breakfast. Led by Joery Wilbers, chairman of the VSCD dance jury, the bottlenecks of the profession are discussed during an informal but highly informative meeting moment with fellow programmers. 

At the request of the programmers present at the time, this meeting will be extended this year to include the other side of the table, namely choreographers. Through speed dates, people get to know each other better, mutual needs are identified and, above all, steps are taken towards the future. 

Afterwards, the choice can be made to see one of the following five programmes, which will then take place together, if one wishes: 

  • 11.30 Once is not enough: triple-bill with performances by Antonin Comestaz, Zino Schat and Joseph Simon that have virtually not played 
  • 12.00 Junadry Leocaria - Mi pret ‘i wowo (premiere) 
  • 12.00 Open Your Mind X The Notorious IBE - preliminaries experimental battle 
  • 12.00 Katja Heitmann - Motus Mori Reliquiem 
  • 12.30 Conny Janssen Danst i.c.w. Dansateliers and Korzo - DANSLOKAAL 12 (triple-bill with performances by Charlie Skuy and Sarada Sarita, among others; premiere) 

A great way to wake up and start festival day number 2! 

The Programmers' Breakfast is an initiative of the Nederlandse Dansdagen and the VSCD. 

Walk-in is at 9.30am, the programme starts at 10.00am and lasts until 11.30am.
