Dutch arts for young audiences at Festival de Montreuil


12 november 2021 until 19 december 2021
In November and December, Dutch arts for young audiences are spotlighted at the French children's book fair in Montreuil, France. Under the heading Ton monde, plein de merveilles (Your world, full of wonders), a presentation of Dutch dance, film and literature for young audiences will take place in Montreuil, a suburb of Paris where France’s most important children's book fair is held every year. The programme is a multidisciplinary collaboration between the Performing Arts Fund NL, the Dutch Foundation for Literature, the Embassy of the Netherlands in Paris, and SEE NL.
The Dutch portion of the programme in Montreuil kicks off with performances by dance company De Dansers. They will present two shows: Shake Shake Shake and Petites cuillères (Lepeltje lepeltje) for children aged 4-14 and their families.

The Montreuil Festival also organises workshops and presentations in which Dutch authors and illustrators will elaborate on their work. Furthermore, a selection of Dutch children's films including the award-winning feature film My Extraordinary Summer with Tess (Mijn bijzonder rare week met Tess), based on Anna Woltz’ book. The screenings will be accompanied by a programme of short films and workshops for the very youngest.
