Fransien van de Putt 

Book presentation: De Nieuwe Dansbibliotheek #3 and #4 


During the Nederlandse Dansdagen, the beautiful Bookshop Dominicanen offers a stage to writers and makers who present new work which contributes to dance literature. This evening Fransien van der Putt will present these new contributions to the Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek. 


The New Dance Library is publishing book three, in the series Conversations with Makers: Choreographer Wies Bloemen and dance theater Aya. 


This edition is a long artist interview with Wies Bloemen, about how she became a successful dancer, choreographer and company leader. Her working methods, artistic practice and development are discussed. The conversations also give a good picture of the Dutch dance scene, the development of youth dance, the practice of the performing arts and the different subsidy systems over time, how youth programming and art education developed, etc. 


The Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek has already published Conversations with Makers, with Jetse Batelaan, Marien Jongewaard and Sarah van Rijn. 


De Nieuwe Dansbibliotheek (DNDB) is a sister publication of De Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek (DNTB) and is edited by Fransien van der Putt and Emily Gallier. DNDB publishes notations, secondary texts and translations in handy booklets, to provide a better insight into the practice of dance and choreography in the Netherlands and Flanders. 


DNDB and DNTB have the mission to make contemporary performing arts practice more available to the Netherlands and Flanders. They do this through print on demand publications in small books and by offering a digital library. This brings Dutch-language performing arts practice to the attention of the right audience by means of the publication of plays and dance notations, essays and interviews: readers and spectators, fellow artists and students, policymakers and researchers.
