The TodaysArt Festival, which takes place during the evenings and nights of 21 and 22 September in the centre of The Hague, is once again bringing a whole range of innovative and groundbreaking acts to the Netherlands. The third editions of the festival takes place at more than 25 locations in the city centre, both in- and outdoor. The program consists of more than 200 acts and artists from more than 25 countries. With major acts such as Chris de Luca vs. Phon.O, SebastiAn, Array, Kool Keith, Daan Roosegaarde and Robert Henke, the TodaysArt Festival puts The Hague on the international map as the stage par excellence for contemporary creativity.
For two days, the city centre of The Hague will function as one big festival terrain, with performances both in the public domain and several stages indoors. Installations, projections and acts use the city centre as a stage and will transform the city into an inspiring bulwark of audiovisual experiences.
The essence of the festival line-up is the vision of the artists, who will present their interpretation on contemporary creativity in areas such as music, video and visual arts, film, photography, fashion, performance art, theatre, modern dance and many other disciplines and collaborations. The festival does not only present new art, but also focuses on established pioneers who enter into a dialogue with contemporary society. Furthermore, TodaysArt provides a podium for artistic expressions that enter into a dialogue with the present-day society: art with a conscience and a mission.
In the search for the essence of contemporary creativity both creative and geographical boundaries need to be crossed. Because of this, the festival line-up always had a large international component in the previous editions. This year, the festival goes a step further by showcasing the most talked about talent from several important European creative clusters that have a worldwide influence on contemporary creativity. Our French, German, British and Detroit programmes provide a strong selection of the leading artists in the local creative scenes.
