The International Danstheater has been known as one of the top five dance companies of the Netherlands and was among the largest professional folklore dance companies in the world.

The performance Stamping Silence follows the path of love. Using traditional dances from various continents, the large cast of dancers and musicians performs the story of a young couple gradually falling in love.
