About ITS

The ITS Festival 2018 is a six-day-long vibrant place where a new generation theatre makers, professionals and their audience meet. The ITS Festival is held in Amsterdam from 19 – 24 June. Graduating artists from theatre and dance schools in The Netherlands and Belgium will present themselves on the stage.


Last year a new team created an entire new festival, in which the focus was brought back to the art, the content and context. For this year’s festival, we continue along the same lines. The ITS Festival will be about the graduates, their vision and their work. Above all, the ITS is a platform for ideas, experiments and the urge to innovate, with which the youngest theatre makers will overtake their field. The festival wants to create a space for students to meet and inspire each other, and to reflect on each other’s work and their practice in general. The fourth year students are taking their place as theatre professionals.
