‘Ook van Jou Festival’ at Dakota

In collaboration with the Spotlight Festival, we will open the new theater season on Friday 1 September from 6.30 pm with the Ook van Jou-Spotlight Festival! This evening there are various previews of the upcoming theater season.

Our theater hall will be transformed into a festival location: the grandstand will be retracted, we will put a bar in the hall and food stalls will be set up. Come and see the best previews and immediately score your tickets for the upcoming performances. Enjoy the voice of Jhilani Wijsman, laugh along with Fuad Hassan, sing along with Loes & Loes and admire the multidisciplinary performance of Stories of Kathak. There are also delicious fresh snacks and dishes for sale made by neighbor Mavis Ishaak and her family. Or score a tasty mocktail made by young people from Moerwijk.

Also on stage in our theater café ZUID 57 there are various performances by various Spoken Word artists and musicians from The Hague. We close the evening with a DJ. This programming is provided in collaboration with Ik Spreek.

A feature film made by students of Wateringseveld College can be seen in the cinema. They have researched how to make a film and produced and directed an entire film from there. From the auditions to the recordings; everything is homemade. So don’t miss this unique film by local young talent!
