Biosphere, Hildur Guðnadóttir, Philip Jeck and Jana Winderen will be performing in the Lutherse Kerk, Den Haag, the Netherlands, as part of the TodaysArt 2009 festival this September.
The Lutherse Kerk will be one of the most exclusive locations of the festival. “Any performance here will be special; the acoustics of the Lutherse Kerk are outstanding and so is the ambience” say the festival organisers. “A very special church hall, inspiring artists and great acoustics; all the elements are in place to make the performances at this location legendary.”
Appearing at the Lutherse Kerk on Friday 25th are Jana Winderen and Philip Jeck. The 26th sees Hildur Guðnadóttir and Biosphere take to the stage, plus a performance of the “Eternal Chord”.
Due to the size of the Lutherse Kerk, it is advisable to show up in time to see your favorite artist.
In addition, on the afternoon of Saturday 26th Touch will be doing a Q&A in the Filmhuis. Led by Mike Harding, anybody who is interested will get the chance to talk with Touch, including the artists performing at TodaysArt 2009.
