What can you expect at Festival Tweetakt?
At Festival Tweetakt you can see the most exciting representations of what is currently happening in the field of contemporary performing arts for youth. You can see new productions or established hits being revisited by well-known companies such as Theater Artemis or Studio ORKA. A fixed spot in the theatre programme is reserved for a performance by students of the HKU (University of the Arts Utrecht). A fantastic opportunity to see the new talent that everyone will soon be talking about! This also applies to our music programme. We invite promising acts to come and perform in the Podiumkas. A stepping stone to success! During previous editions, artists as Ronnie Flex, Thijs Boontjes and Snelle, performed at the festival. But well-known names such as Roxeanne Hazes, Roosbeef and Tim Knol have also performed at Festival Tweetakt.
In addition, our education programme enables 7,000 children and young people to become more acquainted with art and theatre every year. Tweetakt offers them a lot of tools to explore it and make up their own minds about art and culture.
