Holland Festival – Amsterdam
Vision of the Holland Festival
The 2015 edition is the first festival under the artistic leadership of Ruth Mackenzie CBE. She will continue to offer a broad scope of international performing arts with a mix of performances and concerts from all corners of the world. The festival will feature established names as well as new talent, showing innovation in art and exploring new types of venue and forms of theatre. The Holland Festival’s tradition of innovation is further expanded by opening the festival up to the outside world, for instance by staging performances, concerts and events in open public spaces.
Ruth Mackenzie’s aim is for the Holland Festival to have a real impact on visiting audiences, staging life changing events, and to build on the history of a festival of which the Netherlands, particularly Amsterdam, can be proud of.
