One thing is clear: the arts arena is changing, and all the ‘players’ in this arena are looking for a new balance. We all want to continue to develop and renew. This is why, at Oerol, we are building new bridges with new partners, so that makers can continue to reach our audience and so that new productions, large and small, can continue to be made on location, and so that Dutch and international talent can continue to find its way to somewhere new. We do this by sharing our networks with one another and entering into new cooperations.
Oerol is also making efforts in this area through its membership of IN SITU, the European network for the production and presentation of new forms of performing art in the public space.

Over het IJ festival
Our own Atelier Oerol workshop programme focusses on the artists’ first meetings with Terschelling. We select a group of young, talented makers who have a desire to develop an idea prompted by the location; even though they may not yet know what this is. Through a series of workshops, trials are carried out that eventually become productions. This way, we help a new generation of makers make the transition from training to working. We will investigate how such a link between practice and theoretical framework can offer added value to the development of graduate makers, as well as the field of location-specific and landscape theatre as a whole.
In cooperation with Over het IJ festival, we will be examining the relationship between urban and rural landscape location use, partly by providing joint support to makers. We believe Atelier Oerol has a vital role to play; after all, the talented young artists of today are the stars of tomorrow, and innovation contributes to progress.
