The 15th edition of the Nieuwjaarsduik marks the festive start to the cultural calendar year in Utrecht. It features more than sixty mainly free theatre and music performances, workshops, lectures, exhibitions and shows for young and old. There’s an extensive programme featuring theatre, visual arts and fashion in City Hall (Korte Minrebroederstraat 2). The playful and poetic installation of Melody Deldjou Fard and Karim Eharruyen, two talented artists from Utrecht, is one of the many new collaborations in town. There’s music too: young talent will take the stage in Café Fier (Korte Minrebroederstraat 4) and Tango Cielito will be giving a unique performance in Karel V (Geertebolwerk 1). Utrecht-based band Pimiento will conclude the Cultural Sunday with their festive salsa music in Winkel van Sinkel (Oudegracht 158).
