dubbeldans

Dubbeldans is the worthy successor of Dubbelspel (with 30CC). Dubbeldans shows new work by well-known choreographers and also introduces new names that are conquering the international stages. Seven doubles combine productions for the big stage (30CC) with more intimate, smaller-scale performances (STUK). Most of the time the two productions come from the same company, but the link can also be a thematic one.
