DeDae is part of the celebration of the century. Biodynamic agriculture is 100 years old and we would like to celebrate it with you! The Century Festival is for anyone who feels connected to the biodynamic movement or organic farming.

DeDae dances for the earth. ‘The earth is a YOU.’ Anything that gets attention will grow and so DeDae focuses on the earth. DeDae dances the connection with the earth: the seasons, the weather, the soil, the earthworm, the forces of life and growth, but also shows the disruption and exploitation of the economic model. That is our message: our precious earth demands attention, demands human and creative responsibility.

DeDae is short for Dutch Eurythmy Dance Ensemble. We are a group of young, talented eurythmy dancers led by Gia van den Akker. We are guided by the rhythm of the now and tomorrow, working with present-day themes, making productions and developing workshops for different audiences.
In the months to come, we will visit farms with our performance and workshop “Aardedans”, dance with visitors and farmers and make our respect and love for the earth tangible through the dance.

Dance, text, music, song and images blend together: Lyrics from “Broze aarde” by A. Krog, an excerpt from the prologue ”Iets met Boeren”, Peter Dictus / Bureau Pees, speech by Roos Saat for the Rabo bank; music by Vivaldi/Richter, Agnes Obel and Nynke Laverman arranged by Annie Tangberg
