1000 days of development

At Broei, new and aspiring young makers, born in this century, take you along to their ‘Arcadia-to-be’. To the ultimate world in which they want to live. With idiosyncratic productions they will show you what is on their minds, what affects them, what they worry about, or what they hope. 

And they make those productions themselves. They will be creating their own theatre production, concert, cabaret performance, exhibition, installation and everything in between. Because at Broei, young people can work on their ideas in complete freedom. Whether they have experience as a maker or did not even know that there was a maker hidden inside. Professionals from the Frisian cultural field are ready to help where necessary. 

Broei will be working towards two presentation moments a year, when all the productions will be brought together and given a podium. What will the 2025 edition be about? That is up to the young makers of that edition to decide. Registration has already started.
