Most frequently travelled dance company of the Netherlands 2015

For the fifth time in six years, de Stilte is the most frequently travelled dance company of the Netherlands. In 2015, de Stilte presented 89 performances and 22 dance duets at international stages in among others Belgium, France, Austria, the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Luxembourg, Germany, China, Poland, Norway and Turkey.

Dutch Culture, the center for international cooperation in the arts, annually publishes an analysis of the international scope of Dutch arts and culture abroad in the so-called Buitengaats overview. Buitengaats is an online database where information on Dutch cultural activities of various art disciplines abroad is registered. In the 2015 overview, de Stilte ranks number one in dance, followed by choreographer Jan Martens and Nederlands Dans Theater.

In the upcoming season 2016-2017, de Stilte presents 120 performances abroad. In December 2016, the company will premiere its performance Alice at the Opéra Bastille in Paris, making it the very first Dutch performance for youth to ever be programmed there.
