Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival Groningen is the somewhat curious combination of a cutting-edge art festival, with riveting modern performing arts from all corners of the world … and a large-scale summer fest in a beautiful park to which access is free. It is an annual eleven-day festival for 135,000 visitors from Groningen, the rest of the country and the rest of the world. The 22nd edition of the festival will be held in the Noorderplantsoen (park) and at various locations DownTown in Groningen, from Thursday 16 to Sunday 26 August 2012. We present new work by grandmasters, old friends and young theatre makers and musicians from countries such as France, Australia, Cambodia, Norway, Belgium, Germany, Thailand, USA, UK, Switzerland, Finland, South Africa, Mozambique and Hungary. Stories from all over the world, narrated in Groningen.
