Theaterfestival BoulevardDansBrabant

's-Hertogenbosch/Tilburg, The Netherlands

Theaterfestival Boulevard is a summer festival held in and around ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The adventurous programme includes theatre shows, dance, music theatre, street theatre, music, and other art forms, some of which are not so easily pigeonholed. In the annual ritual the festival is, we find an opportunity to truly share an experience.

Partner DansBrabant is a stimulant and catalyst for dance and choreography, working with a diverse palette of talented choreographers. While placing the human body at the centre of a world in motion, they are keen to create an inspiring dance climate in the Dutch province Noord-Brabant.
