ARK Utrecht

Join the traveling city celebration

From September 16 to 19, SPRING will present the traveling city celebration ARK Utrecht in the following neighborhoods: Lombok, Leidsche Rijn, Overvecht, Lunetten, Ondiep and Kanaleneiland. After a long period of lockdowns, ARK Utrecht is a free gift to the residents of the city. During this vibrant city celebration, we carefully put the crisis of the past year behind us and look forward to a new future with confidence. What this one looks like? We will all shape that together during this festival!

A festival for everyone from Utrecht
We celebrate the city with residents of all neighborhoods, ages, backgrounds, education and beliefs. Just as Noah's Ark offered space for many species, there is room for every Utrechter on board ARK Utrecht. A festival of Utrecht for Utrecht, because the program is made by local artists and artists as well as the residents of the city itself. We look back on the corona crisis, think about the world of today and fantasize about the future. Everyone is welcome to come and watch, participate, taste, dance, talk, meet and contribute. Of course we stick to the corona measures that apply.

ARK Utrecht is produced by SPRING: a festival organization with innovative performances by contemporary international theater makers and choreographers. The performances of SPRING are for an open and curious audience and take place in various theaters and in unusual places in Utrecht. ARK Utrecht is part of the European project ARK that is organized in seven European cities through the artistic network Moving Borders. ARK was created by British theater group Quarantine and is made possible in part by Creative Europe.
