Language No Problem

Tucked away in the beautiful northern city of Leeuwarden, the origins of De Harmonie trace back to 1874. Since its conception, De Harmonie has been stage to a number of brilliant performances, ranging from theatre to music, from dance to installation. Hosting performers and collectives from the Netherlands and around the world, the theatre prides itself on its diverse array of productions.

In order to facilitate a wider audience, De Harmonie has marked a number of LNP (language no problem) performances in its regular seasonal program for expats, international students, and everybody who wants to enjoy performances in English or without much or any dialogue. These include dance performances and concerts, as well as plays or operas without any spoken dialogue and/or with English subtitles.

Here you will find the complete overview of this season's LNP performances.
