Freedomballet FreeVrijheidsballet VrijFreiheitsballet Frei


We are asking your attention for the international cultural event FREE scheduled to start in May 2005. FREE is a dance triptych about rising National Socialism, Second World war and liberation(s). The dance triptych is among others a freedom ballet (Liberation) also an anti-war ballet (War) and an anti-fascist ballet (Alone).Download here the synopsis FREE (uk) or VRIJ (nl)

It is our aim to launch the première of FREE in September 2015, when billions of people worldwide celebrate the 70th anniversary of the capitulation of the Japanese emperor, the end of World War Two. After the Dutch première and tour we would like to realize the ballet throughout the world in the decades to come. Because our freedom today, is our responsibility for tomorrow and this does not stop at our borders!

That is why the freedom ballet FREE creates not only beauty but also incites discovery, stimulates reflection, and generates self-knowledge. Eventually this will increase international understanding, exchange, and cooperation between governments, companies and people, in order to avoid war in the future. In fact FREE is of interest for you and we hope that you will be good for peace, security and freedom which creates prosperity, the main values which we and governments, companies and people throughout the world should pursue.

So would you like to support FREE?

I dedicate the freedom ballet in general to the 55 million victims of World War Two and in particular to:
– The brothers and sisters Marianna, Salomon and Frieda van Loon who died on 30-09-1942(my birthday 29 earlier) in Auschwitz far to young;
– Peter van Pels, the ”boyfriend” of Anne Frank who survived the Auschwitz death march, but in the end died on May 5th, 1945 in concentration camp Mauthausen;
– The ballet dancer and military Kyle G. Thomas (23 years old) who died in Tikrit, Iraq in September 2003. His last dance was the ballet ‘The Nutcracker’ for the Metropolitan ballet or Topeka;
– The Dutch queen of peace, queen Juliana, who fought all her life for peace.
