Bring Back The Happening

April 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Bring Back The Happening by Nineties

“Happenings” in the tumultuous 1960s reflected the need for disruption. Dutch contemporary theatre collective Nineties convenes a “happening” – neither a play nor a show – as an interactive, high-spirited way to connect with others, find healing and leave behind all worldly dislocation – if only for a moment. Surrender to a lively ritual underscored by a lush soundtrack (and maybe a few dinosaurs).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to travel delays, all performances of Bring Back the Happening have been canceled. All ticketed patrons have been contacted. We are sorry for any inconvenience.  


Nineties is an eclectic Dutch theater group with a never-ending urge to experiment and a fearless curiosity for new art forms. As creative shapeshifters, we focus on narrative forms that can make room for a multitude of world views. They therefore represent the voice of a generation that grew up in a world where many different truths coexist, and we want our work to do justice to these diverse perspectives. Through theater they try to make present times a little less elusive. They playfully look for other perspectives and other ways to tell stories that can help us move into the future. Curious, committed and with a healthy dose of self-deprecation, we make proposals for different ways of looking.
