Festival a/d Werf
This year, the 27th and last edition of Festival a/d Werf will take place from May 17 to 26. More than ever, the artists will use the city as their stage: performances take place in public spaces such as a hotel, the University Library and the central bus station. These locations are the main subjects and the people who live or work there become the cast. Inspired by this year’s theme This is where we live, performances relate to the city of Utrecht as a part of the bigger picture: the Netherlands, Europe, the world.
