Public opening 2023 on Thursday 3 August

On Thursday 3 August the festival will be opened with a toast of the directors at 15.45h.

Barguijs will follow with spoken word, followed by the performance OVVIO by Kolektiv Lapso Cirk.

Be welcome as you are!



In OVVIO, David and Tomas, together forming Kolektiv Lapso Cirk, challenge the laws of gravity and their own abilities. It is a constant interplay of dance and balance in which materials you can also find at the construction store, gravity and David and Tomas' vestibular system play the leading roles. In the performance simple wooden planks and beams are being used. And there is something special with those wooden planks. Because the wood that is used in this performance is made and used for Deventer op Stelten a month prior to Boulevard. This is made by a local entrepreneur, Bert Ros. This wood will come to Boulevard after the event, so the wood will be used several times!

And that's not all! After the performance, the wooden planks and beams get another life! They will go to three other festivals and then end up at the Stichting Stadshout, which further processes the wood! This way, the wood is used as efficiently as possible.
