Explore Festival in the media

“In Du désir d’horizons the spectator travels past the major emotions of being a refugee”, de Volkskrant, 14/3/2019; “Breathtaking” – de Theaterkrant about Somewhere at the beginning, 15/3/2019; “Until 29 March, ten theatres in seven large cities present Explore Festival; a sort of small-scale Holland Festival. Performance art, dance performances and theatre from Africa and Latin-America have been brought to the Netherlands.” de Theaterkrant, 8/3/2019; “…Odisseia a powerful statement. A relevant performance about love, sex, war, having to flee, despair, loneliness, desolation – and about hoping for a better future.” – Theaterkrant, 7/3/2019; “Odisseia is a form of total theatre where the arriving audience is welcomed like Odysseus returning home and where, amongst all the stories of estrangement, it is precisely in the intervals that fraternization happens. There is delicious soup, Brazilian rum, the audience and the group dance to Russian folk music, there is a hilarious karaoke packed with wrong notes”. – Dagblad van het Noorden, 7/3/2019; “Explore Festival brings non-Western theatre to the Netherlands. A great moment to step out of your own bubble and of the Western filter, even if only briefly.”- DenHaag Centraal, 8/3/2019.
