The Utrecht company De Dansers received the Harm Lambers Bouwsteen for special art in Utrecht in 2022. The company received this award for their exceptional contribution to the connection between art and the city of Utrecht. As part of the award, the company will be given the key to Theater Kikker in Utrecht for one day on Saturday 8 April and will present their own theatre evening here. A unique and inspiring evening with special guests, good conversation, dancing together and a folkdance party.

Unique evening of theatre

At the invitation of De Dansers, Austrian choreographer and performer duo Simon Mayer and Hannah Shakti Buhler, are coming to Utrecht with their performance Somatic Tratata. Before the performance, Josephine van Rheenen and Guy Corneille, the artistic directors of De Dansers, will tell why they are inspired by these creators. After the performance, the audience will be taken into Simon and Hannah's working practice and learn more about the traditional folk dances they studied for the performance. So an after-show meets pop-up folk dance workshop. If you like it, you'll get to put your own feet up. That cannot fail to end in a folkdance party until the wee hours.

"We first saw Simon Mayer at Sziget Festival in 2010 and have been fans ever since. His performances inspire us because he brings together dance, music, humour and emotion. You feel the zest for life seeping through his performances and that makes his most abstract, folkloric or weirder dance-music performances completely relatable. We would like to share this inspiration with Utrecht." - Josephine van Rheenen and Guy Corneille

About The Harm Lambers Building Stone

The Harm Lambers Building Block for Special Art in Utrecht is an initiative of theatre makers Paul Feld and Erik Snel in collaboration with Theater Kikker. The award is named after the former director of Theater Kikker Harm Lambers, who died in 2021. The prize - a biennial challenge trophy - is intended for Utrecht artists and collectives, who seek a connection between art and the city. The initiators: "Harm was one of the architects of Utrecht's theatre climate, which has been characterised by extraordinary collaborations for decades. With this award, we not only want to honour Harm himself, but also celebrate his legacy as a tireless connector between makers, venues, art disciplines and the city."
