10 days of cultural adventure: We Are Public ❤ Oerol
An underwater light show. A pop-up beach rave. A concert in a horse stable. Every year, the island of Terschelling transforms into one enormous stage for theatre, dance, visual arts and music. The island’s dunes, streets, woods and various other unexpected sites are all host to this extraordinary 10-day event. All performances are created specifically for these sites; you’ll find beautiful, peculiar and astonishing things happening around every corner, everywhere you look.
We Are Public members can get themselves a festival wristband for free. The wristband provides access to (almost) the entire festival programme; the festival areas, art projects on the Expeditie route, street performances, Oerol college and music performances in the woods. Basically, you’ll have access to all but the theatre performances; to visit those you’ll need to buy an extra ticket.
Your festival wristband entrance includes:
De Likt from Rotterdam: expect a spectacular live show with a unique combination of hip-hop and minimalist electronic music. Music editor Maarten Claus: “A downright dirty Rotterdam party”
Morning, Mourning by dancers Youri Peters and Marie Khatib-Shahidi is an intense, site-specific dance performance, merging emotions and movements.
Schlachthofbronx brings the perfect mix of every conceivable tropical and electronic bass sound. This DJ duo’s energetic style and audience interaction will have you dancing your socks off in no time.
