The Holland Days culture festival will take place in Moscow as part of the Russian-Dutch Bilateral Year.
Gorky Park will host the festival’s main events. A performance by Kyteman, featuring the Don Cossack Choir (Don Kosaken Chor Russland), will be the highlight of the program. Other performing bands will include De Kift and sKiP & DiE. Artist Gijs Frieling and designer Job Wouters are planning to create a large piece of artwork opposite the music stage.
The open-air Pioneer cinema will screen films by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven, and a Dutch photography exhibition will be held in the park.
The Holland Days will also extend to other places throughout the city. As part of the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, the “Andrei Reuter Open House” exhibition will be hosted by the National Center for Contemporary Art, while ARTPLAY will present the “Space of Exception” exhibition.
The Tretyakov Gallery will put up an exhibition about one of the pioneers of abstract art, Piet Mondrian.
In addition, the Gavroche children’s theatre festival will be lending its stage to Dutch performing artists.
