Oerol Festival 2014Festivals / Other
June 13-22 2014, Various times
The Oerol Festival annually presents some of the newest, best and brightest from the Dutch performing and landscape arts scenes by turning the island of Terschelling into a cultural hot-spot for 10 days!
What is the Oerol Festival?
One of the most exceptional theatre and landscape art festivals in Europe, the Oerol Festival has been running since 1982.
Each June the beautiful island of Terschelling becomes a stage for performers who often incorporate natural elements of the island into their show and artists who create place-specific installations or pieces.
The island atmosphere gives the creative community a feeling seperation from mainland Europe that translates into a supportive environment in which to be truly experimental.
Encompassing genres from street-theatre to mime to traditional dance, the theatre productions take place in the dunes, woods and beaches around the island; thereby creating an enhanced "sense of place."
Additional contributions from unique artistic installations, musicians and street-artists make this festival one that cannot be missed.
Whether immersed in the Dutch theatre community or a casual visitor, Oerol is a refreshing festival that presents new and original works amidst the meditative ambiance of an island retreat!
