Today, the festival announces the first acts of it’s line up. De Dansers, Toneelgroep Oostpool, Theatergroep Kwatta and ZUHAUSE will be performing us at Hoogte80 Festival May 21 – 24.

De Dansers play Shake Shake Shake

Shake Shake Shake is a rousing concert that slowly derails into a dance performance. A live band of dancers and musicians sings about being stuck and shaking it out, chasing the top and hitting the bottom. One jumps over the other’s instruments, and a little later they are involved in a poetic dance duet. A rock and roll ritual, with music as engine and inspiration as fuel.

‘De Dansers trump themselves with a performance that could easily serve as an antidepressant.’
★★★★★.- de Volkskrant, september 2019

Toneelgroep Oostpool plays GOD? – Dutch Spoken

Beste friends Qi, Tommy and Ay all have different backgrounds and religions. In their last year of highschool, they openly discuss this. What’s it like to be religious, how do you decide where you belong? What if you fall in love with someone who does not share the same religion?

“A truly touching performance, manages to make a complex theme discussable on a human level.” ★★★★, NRC, maart 2020

Theatergroep Kwatta with Bos van Benen, Stad van Stenen – Dutch Spoken

In Bos van Benen, Stad van Stenen you visit two boys. They’ve played ‘ world under the table’ ever since they were little. A game in which everything comes to live through speech.


In 2019 singer Eliën (Élénie Wagner) and collective ZUHAUSE made a journey of 14.000 kilometers through Europe in a yellow campervan named UFO. Searching for the great thinkers of the continent: artists, politicians, farmers, activist, immigrants and primal inhabitants. From the Peloponnesos Island in Southern Greece to the most northern part of Lapland, they searched for interaction, and simply listened. Resulting in interesting works of music.
