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.
Conny Janssen Danst is a permanent partner of the Dutch Dance Festival. She brings young, passionate artists, the future, to the festival every year with her DANSLOKAAL [‘dance rehearsal room’]. Her own work is characterised as inventive and she engages with artists and organisations from the world of photography, film, architecture, theatre and music. In the Dance Museum, Conny Janssen places the power and impact of innovation in the context of the rich history of her company, which itself has been placing dance in a broader context for more than 25 years.
