HF in conversation with Nicolas Stemann

Conversations with makers from the festival programme

Dive into the world of the artist. In this series, different interviewers will talk with makers presenting work at the festival.



How did a performance come about? Where do makers get their inspiration? What was the starting point, and what challenges did they encounter along the way? The conversations give a glimpse into the work and background of the festival artists. There will be conversations with the two associate artists, the French-Beninese singer Angélique Kidjo and the German theatre director Nicolas Stemann, as well as, among others, Mary Finsterer, composer of the contemporary opera Antarctica. The conversations can be viewed through HF Digital on the Holland Festival website. It is also possible to attend live discussions with makers after various performances.
