Info for artists

We have wide experience in the programming and support of foreign artists. If required, we can handle the entire logistics too: the visa, the trip and hotels. Our festival has been booking international artists since 1973. The first guest was Djoni Ginsir, a dancer from Bali. Since 1976 we have included musicians and dancers from Asia in the program every year from various provinces of Indonesia and Malaysia, and from Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, India and New-Zealand.

The number of foreign artists has grown in recent years, and musicians and dancers from the United States and Europe have also appeared at the festival by invitation.

Artists and agents wishing to contact our programmers, can e-mail us at theaters@tongtong.nl.
