OVER HET IJ FESTIVAL 2013
4 - 14 JULI, AMSTERDAM
Over het IJ Festival stands for high quality location theatre. The production of location theatre demands the exploring and recognition of the scenery. It is not only a matter of using the environment, but it really needs to be noticed and explored. The NDSM shipyard is home to Over het IJ Festival and over the years it has become the artistic starting point for many theatre makers giving an extra dimension to their performances.
Every year we offer exceptional and unexpected performances in various unique locations during eleven days in July. These locations are situated around Amsterdam Central Station, the Waterlandplein in Amsterdam North and in various other places near the banks of the river IJ.
Many of the performances are exclusively performed at Over het IJ Festival. In between performances you can enjoy delicious food and inviting drinks in the centre of the festival to which the entrance is free for everybody.
