|Over Het IJ Festival|
Summer venue theatre
The Over het IJ Festival is the summer venue theatre festival.
A ferry will take you from the bustling city centre to the other side of the River IJ. There you will disembark and exchange the drag of everyday life for exciting performances by young theatre makers at unexpected venues. For eleven days you can watch more than twenty-five performances and enjoy delicious food and drinks at the festival site.
A benchmark of the Over het IJ Festival is the Sea Container Programme: students of various Dutch theatre schools develop a miniature performance that is staged in a sea container measuring six by three metres. Each sea container offers you a unique theatrical experience!
The festival will take place at the NDSM quay at Overhoeks (the new part of Amsterdam's centre on the shore of the IJ) and Amsterdam Central Station.
