In the Ypenburg Public Library, we take you on a journey through music, dance and poetry from the Caribbean. A program to whirl you away, plus food for contemplation. The Curacaoan poets and thinkers Walter Palm and Guiselle Martha will appear; the band Tipiko Den Haag lets you experience just how addictive Caribbean rhythms are; and dancers such as Junadry Leocaria invite you onto the dance floor!

The theme of this edition of the Winternachten Festival is A Free Mind. Programme maker Julian Starink: "But what does that actually mean? Just how free are our thoughts? What can we learn from the Caribbean region?"

Via poems and spoken-word, Walter Palm and Guiselle Martha will introduce you to a region in which cultures have come into contact - both voluntarily and involuntarily. You'll be swept up in the incredible diversity of musical styles from Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, as played by Tipiko Den Haag. And Junadry Leocaria will show you that music isn't only meant to be listened to: the dance floor will beckon!
