Director (a.i.) of the Academy of Theatre and Dance Marjo van Schaik opened the online graduation festival re-CONNECT on 26 June.
Live from the re-CONNECT studio at the academy, Marjo gave a speech for the online visitors of the festival and the 2020 graduation group:
'It is also not an' ordinary 'group of graduates. But a batch that has received a very special gift without being asked. As the only generation they followed the full live training and tasted a completely new reality: how do you deal with the unexpected, the big world outside yourself, and how do you explore your artistic boundaries within it?'
