Official opening BRIK Festival

The Stilte festival changes their name after four editions to BRIK otherwise known as the Brabant’s Internationaal kinderfestival. Besides the rebranding of the name and look the foundation of the festival remains the same; breath-taking universal theatre and dance performances from across the globe for babies, toddlers and children as well as their parents and grandparents. We sincerely invite everybody to join our official opening of the BRIK festival on Wednesday the 5th of June.

14:00: Opening with Lex Uitting and Marianna de Bie

Wednesday the 5th of June, the alderman of culture in Breda, Marianna de Bie officially opens BRIK Festival. She will kick off the festival at 14:00 at our main festival hub, the Kasteelplein for over 25 performances from dance and theatre companies from over 13 different countries that will have Breda moving all week long.  The presentation is in the hands of Lex Uitting, who previously presented the BNNVARA show ‘Kinderen voor Kinderen’ and much more. As the old prince of carnival, Lex sure knows how to celebrate a party!

14:30: Opening performance BLOCK

After we have all made a toast to the opening, the opening performance, BLOCK will start at 14:30. The free performance is from the English dance company Motionhouse. In a spectacular show full of daring stunts, dancers use 20 gigantic blocks as an ever changing playing field. This show is symbol for life in the city, full of contradictions and challenges.
