Sat 21 & Sun 22 April 2018

with: Matangi Quartet, Jonathan Dove, Sepp Grotenhuis, Francis van Broekhuizen en De Dutch Don’t Dance Division and more

For two days, Korzo will be a real paradise full of musical discoveries during the (UN)heard Music Festival. The festival is staged by the successful Matangi Quartet and leads the listener for two full days through a world of well known and lesser-known musical works. The festival features music by composer in residence Jonathan Dove, whose accessible sounds and love of dance rhythms make it difficult to sit still.

Music that moves you is often music that takes you by surprise, in an unguarded moment. It could be music that you don’t know at all that that surprises you. The Matangi Quartet aims to achieve just that with the (UN)heard Music Festival. During the festival the spotlights are trained on works that don’t get the attention they deserve and are therefore rarely or never performed in the Netherlands. But in addition, works will be performed that have a connection with these unheard works that are well known. This official first edition of the festival features the music of British composer Jonathan Dove.

"Is that all there is?" asks the singer Peggy Lee in her famous song about what really matters in life. Her consluion: "If that's all there is, my friend, then let's keep dancing..." And that is exactly what happens in All there is, the dance program on the Sunday afternoon. Where not so much the choreography or the concept, but the performer is in the center of attention. This series shows the dancer as a kaleidoscope: a seemingly simple tool, but able to change the view of reality with every turn, as a poetic ode to fluidity and wonder in life. Each program is a one-time event and productions from abroad are often presented that are not performed elsewhere in the Netherlands.

Innovative new circus festival - 23 thru 25 March 2018 
After the success of four editions of Cirque Mania in Korzo, preparations are already in full swing for Edition #5. Korzo has identified an interesting development in contemporary circus arts in the Netherlands: circus artists are winning hearts in the Dutch theatres by innovatively enriching the circus with other art forms.

Young circus makers do great tricks, but they also have a story to tell. At the moment, the circus is rapidly developing into a new theatrical form where artists combine their circus skills with theatre, dance, and music. They assail the Dutch performing arts scene with this energetic and exciting theatre form: the New Circus is taking theatres in the Netherlands by storm. Korzo hosts Cirque Mania twice yearly to introduce established and up-and-coming top talents from the Netherlands and Belgium. And event not to be missed for cultural connoisseurs and families with children alike.

See all Cirque Mania #5 performances with Korzo's Cirque Mania passe-partout for only €30,- (online sale price).

International wide-ranging and surprising
From 25 January thru 11 February 2018, the Holland Dance Festival opens a window unto the world. The festival shows international dance productions, otherwise not seen in this country. Dutch premieres, in which nineteen countries are represented. Surprising location projects, large-scale productions, and intimate performances alternate in a program that shows the best that contemporary dance has to offer on an international scale. Korzo is certainly the most intimate festival venue with choreographers who have a strong connection with Korzo and the festival.

The living kitchen is the warm beating heart of Korzo theatre. People eat, cook, and drink here; dancers, actors, and technical staff have meals together before the start of the performance. During the Korzo Kitchen, we invite you to join them for a theatrical dinner full of surprises and interesting encounters. A cultural host will receive you and the artists will prepare a meal for you themselves. All rounded off with a very special desert!

The Hague music festival Rewire and dance and music podium Korzo are working together to organize five dynamic evenings that feature new music. Various international artists and deejays will be invited to give a performance in Korzo. With the concert series Rewire and Korzo are committed to develop and promote adventurous music and related (stage) art. Both organizations are true advocates of contemporary music and find common ground in the ambition to achieve the biggest possible impact with the audience and artists.

REWIRE x KORZO is made possible by a contribution from Fonds21.

Every year in April the Composition department of the Royal Conservatoire is hosting its annual Spring Festival. The concerts present the latest works by students of the Composition department, performed by instrumentalists, singers and performers of the Royal Conservatoire and various Dutch ensembles. During this Festival there will be numerous afternoon and evening concerts both at the Royal Conservatoire and the Korzo theatre.
