The Dutch Dance Festival brings the rich cultural heritage of Dutch dance to the fore with
the dansMuseum as a source of inspiration and innovation. At this year’s festival, the dansMuseum is a conceptual interpretation of a traditional museum exhibition.Extinctus/Extantem is an exhibition in the form of a publication; a port- able archive of articles, essays and interviews all about forgotten and lost movements in Dutch dance. In addition, the dansMuseum presents three special guest exhibitions that reflect the theme of the publication in three different ways.
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.
