SPRING presents Dries Verhoeven's
You are here 8-18 July

SPRING Academy

TAKE NOTE: We regret to announce that SPRING Performing Arts Festival from May 14-23, 2020 cannot take place. Yesterday, the Dutch government announced new measures connected with the corona situation. All gatherings are prohibited in the Netherlands until 1 June, including SPRING. We are currently looking for new options in which we minimize the damage to the artists and other involved parties. We hope, among other things, that we can expand the SPRING in Autumn festival in the fall. If more is clear, we will let you know. We will contact the people who already bought a ticket for SPRING 2020 soon. More information about SPRING and corona can be found here.

SPRING Academy 2020: Platform for artistic exchange

10 days of theatre, dance, workshops, lectures and encounters for emerging artists, students and theorists

SPRING Academy is SPRING Performing Arts Festival’s platform for artistic exchange. We connect emerging artists, dramaturgs, scenographers and researchers to the artists of SPRING. Be inspired during 10 days of workshops, masterclasses, artist talks, symposia and exchanges. Meet peers in the field, get involved and discover new impulses. Join our artistic eco-system during SPRING Performing Arts Festival at Het Huis Utrecht.


Join us!


SPRING Academy invites (international) emerging artists: curious minds, exciting makers, intriguing performers, political engagers, connecting dramaturgs, colourful scenographers and other quirky professionals. We offer in-depth festival experiences with a multiple-day SPRING Intensive, masterclasses by festival artists and tailormade programmes for art schools. Deadline: 14 April.
