Dutch Performing Arts proudly powers two Dutch companies who are part of Off-IPAY 2020, in collaboration with the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York and DutchCulture. IPAY Showcase takes place from 21-25 January 2020 in Philadelphia, the United States.
IPAY Showcase is a platform for theatre companies from all over the world that cater to young audiences in the US, and this year features two Dutch companies. After having supported eight Dutch theatre and youth dance companies at last year's IPAY Showcase, we're proud to announce the two companies that are part of this year's Off-IPAY Showcase.

Dutch performances
You can enjoy the following performances in a double bill:

Wonderland Collective - 'BB' (for 6-18 months)
'BB' is an interactive dance and music experience for babies and toddlers. The dancers and musicians improvise and respond to the movements and sounds the young audience produces in a magical, touching dialogue.

The Ministry of Unachieved Affairs - 'The Last Cookie' (for 3+ yrs)
'The Last Cookie' is a physical theatre performance about the peculiar ways in which adults sometimes live their lives. About their love for things and their agreement not to talk about cookies!

Two great shows in one sitting
You can catch 'BB' and 'The Last Cookie' as a double bill on Thursday 23 January 2020 from 18:45-20:30, at the Caplan Recital Hall at University of the Arts, Terra, 211 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19107, 17th Floor. Snacks and drinks will be provided. Reserve your seat here.
