The 12th annual Going Dutch Festival, produced by Side Street Studio Arts, is a celebration of the female voice in dance, music, theater, and the visual arts. The Festival runs May 27-June 25, 2022 all around downtown Elgin. GD is produced by Side Street Studio Arts and supported in part by the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission.
ABOUT GOING DUTCH: Originally developed to address the underrepresentation of female choreographers in the dance world, GD grew into a multi-disciplinary arts festival, including the work of self-identified female and trans artists working in music, theatre, site-specific, and visual arts, as well as dance. Now in its 12th year, we want our audiences up close and sharing space with the artists. All events are held in smaller, more intimate spaces. No fourth wall. No pomp.
