Oerol 2018 takes place from the 15th until the 24th of June. Oerol is the perfect place to see new theatre shows and to speak to artists, musicians and theatre makers about upcoming projects. Each year, the festival features dozens of premieres and a variety of productions from its own Atelier. Renowned and upcoming talented theatre makers present new work and there’s an extensive programme filled with small experimental pieces, land art and many musical performances. The festival gives theatre makers, artists, musicians and professionals a chance to exchange knowledge and to talk about upcoming projects.

Oerol invites journalists and reporters to cover the festival.
