Visual Language Weekend

The second weekend of the Oerol Festival is entirely dedicated to the Visual Language. What does that mean? There will be deaf performers, and many programme components will be provided with Dutch Sign Language (NGT) interpreters and/or captioners.

Save the date!

This year’s Visual Language Weekend is from:
Friday 14th June to Sunday 16th June 2024


Our interpreters, both deaf and hearing, are ready to support you. Each performance indicates which interpreters are present. Speech-to-text interpreters work with iPads or Text on Stage, a large screen where the text can be read live.

Suppose you need an interpreter during the weekend for a programme component where no interpreter is available. In that case, you can use our ‘Jut de Tolk’ initiative. Just like the people of the Wadden Islands beachcombing for what they need along the coast (in Dutch known as jutten), as a visitor, you can ‘jut’ an interpreter. Send a WhatsApp message to Nathalie at +31 6-20107362 (text or NGT), and we’ll do our best to find an interpreter for you. Be quick, as the sooner you send your request, the greater the chance of availability.


To make your visit to Oerol even easier, we offer various routes to choose from once the full programme is online. These routes will take you past interpreted performances, visual art installations, street theatre, dance, visual performances, and of course, our tips! Check the schedule on this page later for more information. Please note: the routes are fun suggestions, but they are not mandatory. You are free to create your own programme.


Do you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for our Visual Language coordinator? We look forward to hearing from you.
