Holland Festival, Internationaal Theater Amsterdam and Nederlands Dans Theater have joined forces to jointly innovate in digitisation, engaging online with broad and new audiences and archiving and unlocking cultural heritage. By joining forces, the Digitaal Theater platform has been realised. In the future, this platform will also be available to other organisations within the performing arts.
In order to strengthen each other and the sector, the three organisations, with the support of Fonds21, jointly started looking for an innovative and sustainable way to offer digital content. Executive Director Willemijn Maas (Nederlands Dans Theater): “The pandemic accelerated digitalisation, both nationally and internationally. With that, we also learned more about new possibilities, including the artistic added value that presenting dance online can offer. We think it is important to share the knowledge from all the experiments in the past period, but also the knowledge we will still gain from this platform, with each other and with other cultural organisations.”
