Reroute along special locations in old city center

New to CaDance! Join us on tour through the center of The Hague during Reroute and step from one mini-performance to another by the newest generation of creators including Mohamed Yusuf Boss and the Heavy Hitters. You will discover hidden stories and surprising combinations. Everyday traffic transforms into choreography, a fashion show becomes a form of protest, hip-hop meets classical music, and all in the heart of The Hague. Reroute lasts about two hours and can be seen several times in one day.

Katja Heitmann's 'movement archive' on the square in front of the National Archive for CS

Motus Mori: RELIQUIEM is Katja Heitmann's new project through which you can experience her 'archive of movement' in the most direct way possible: through your own body.

They were all special encounters in which Katja Heitmann's dancers meticulously collected the movements of 'movement donors' in various Dutch, German and Belgian cities in an honest and intimate way over the past few years. They did this by following, questioning and copying them for several hours. Many were touched to then recognize themselves or loved ones in the dancers' bodies. The unique project was even noticed by The New York Times, which published an extensive article on Motus Mori in the fall of 2021. The Anna van Buerenplein right in front of the National Archives is the most beautiful place imaginable to share this project!

Dance and science in one performance in Lutheran Church

Australian dance maker James Batchelor went on a two-month expedition with sixty scientists to investigate Sub-Antarctic volcanoes. He mapped the journey using his own body as a measuring instrument. Combining dance, sound and installation, Deepspace is an enchanting, intimate performance that explores our curiosity about the unknown. During the performance, you walk around the performers and get to decide where to stand to watch them. After Deepspace has already been seen at Centre Pompidou, among other places, James Batchelor is now at the Lutherse Kerk in The Hague, a beloved location for many festivals in The Hague.
