Every year in August, people from all over Europe and abroad gather in the historic Dutch city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch as the Boulevard Theatre Festival takes over its streets, squares, parks and buildings. At the Festival Centre, overlooked by the magnificent 14th century Cathedral Church of St. John, and in many other locations across the medieval city, the audience can revel in an 11-day celebration of dance, music, theatre and visual arts. “We are a festival full of adventure and innovation,” says managing director Viktorien van Hulst. “We’re known for staging dynamic, physical and intuitive theatre, which invites the audience to open up and go with the flow.”
