In the spirit of the months-long Quebec and Australia festivals of the recent past, the Distinctively Dutch Festival arrives next month and stays through mid-May, with contemporary visual and performing arts programs stretching from the Pittsburgh Cultural District to Oakland’s university campuses to the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild on the North Side.The festival will open Feb. 18 with the U.S. premiere of “Anatomica” by Andre Gingras and performed by Dance Works Rotterdam and will culminate in May with family oriented programs in Oakland.
Arthur Kibbelaar, consul for the cultural arts for the Netherlands, joined Cultural Trust president and CEO Kevin McMahon on Wednesday in announcing the programs. He called the festival “a gateway” to cultural, economic and academic exchanges, while pointing out that his country is the third-largest foreign direct investor in the United States.

A pair of world premieres, as well as several U.S. premieres, are among the plans for Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s Distinctively Dutch Festival, set to begin Feb. 18.
In all, 18 events will take place during the four-month festival of art and cultural exhibits and performances, which Gabri Christa hopes will make Pittsburghers more aware of the richness of the contemporary Dutch art world.
“I’m hopeful they will see the diversity of Dutch art, and that innovation is a large part of the Dutch cultural tradition,” says Christa, director of performing arts for the department for cultural affairs at the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York City, who assisted the Trust in organizing the festival.

We are proud to announce Distinctively Dutch: a festival in Pittsburgh, starting february and ending in june 2012, where in this period of four months some of the best Dutch cultural acts will perform their great works. The Distinctively Dutch Festival will feature the best of Dutch Dance, Theatre, Opera, Film, Visual Arts and Literature – all different, all new. Dutch Arts: because you deserve it!
Many of the shows will be premieres: two are even world premieres (Wunderbaum’s ‘Detroit Dealers’ and JacobTv’s ‘The News’), while several shows will have their US premiere in Pittsburgh (such as Pips:lab’s Diespace, Dance Work Rotterdam’s ‘Anatomica’ and the show by Jiri Kylian and Michael Schumacher). For Jiri Kylian, a world famous choreographer, it has been quite a while since his any of his work was seen in the US, another reason to visit the show.
