The Kunstenfestivaldesarts is part of NXTSTP, a network of festivals created in 2007 to stimulate the co-production and circulation of the performing arts in Europe. NXTSTP co-produces new work and provides financial support and international visibility. The festivals also offer residencies to young European and non-European artists. NXTSTP’s second instalment runs until 31 October 2017, relying on a fiveyear period of support within the framework of the Culture Programme of the European Union. From 2007 to 2017, the network has supported 71 projects by European performing artists and companies, which taken together accounts for nearly 3000 performance dates globally. At the Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2017 you can discover new works by the artists supported by NXTSTP: Marcelo Evelin, Marlene Monteiro Freitas, Simon Mayer, and L’Amicale de production.
