Terschelling’s Oerol festival has come to be known as one of the most exceptional landscape art festivals in Europe. From its origins as a small festival in 1982, Oerol has grown into a true phenomenon.
For 10 days in June each year, the island of Terschelling in the Wadden Sea is transformed into a unique natural stage for theatre, dance, art installations and music. More recent projects have also displayed a combination of art, science and nature. These projects are becoming ever more important, giving shape to new aspirations of the festival. With a huge audience, participating as fieldworkers in laboratory projects, the festival becomes an exciting, yet serious living laboratory.
The international visitors' programme is organised by Oerol in collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts. The programme is made possible by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
