In June of 2019, the historic city of Breda will form the backdrop for the 5th International Stiltefestival. This ‘festival of silence’ aims to appeal to a wide range of children, their families and caretakers with an international programme filled with dancing, mime, puppet and shadow theatre, visual performances and spectacular acts. The Stiltefestival is unique in Europe in bringing together such a wide range of non-verbal performances for a young public.
The Dutch dance group de Stilte (the Silence) is the initiator of the International Stiltefestival. This group makes many creative contacts and discovers fantastic shows during their many international tours, and they are eager to share their findings with audiences in the Netherlands.
In addition to the public performances, there are ample possibilities for visiting the festival with a school group. And if that’s not convenient – the festival will be happy to come to your school!
