MORE INFO ABOUT 2020 COMING SOON! In the meantime please enjoy the throwback 😉

Whether you are addicted to love, alcohol, your own reflection or your smartphone… During The Amsterdam Storytelling Festival, you can confess it honestly, because this year’s theme is: Addiction. From Wednesday, October 30 to Sunday, November 3, Podium Mozaïek at Bos en Lommerweg 191 becomes a hot tub of activity, with shows and debates to stimulate the mind.

Creative directors Raphael Rodan and Sahand Sahebdivani guarantee you goosebumps and lots of laughter. They have visited a wide range of international and national performances throughout the year, and selected the best for you. They also guide emerging talent in the development of their show, so expect some surprising premieres. In addition to the shows, there are inspiring storytelling workshops.

During various talks, which are free to enter, we will discuss how storytelling connects to related art forms, politics and other tricky subjects. Besides all of that you are more than welcome to the foyer, which will be turned into an oriental meeting place with addictive music and good parties.

This year’s program offers a mix of shows in English and Dutch. Some refer directly to the theme, with some the theme is just below the surface. But one thing we know for sure… after this year you will be addicted to the festival forever.
