The HBS on ‘s-Gravendijkwal opens its doors! Join us on a journey of discovery through this monumental school building and be surprised by dance, spoken word and music by Dansateliers, New Grounds and the DoelenEnsemble.

Discover a dance solo in the old gym, which has been converted into a theater studio, listen to an intimate concert in the old drawing room and roam the long corridors in search of the music of the DoelenEnsemble. Spoken word lures you up the impressive staircase.
