The Source of Inspiration Gala will consist of a selection of international highlights from the festival, amongst them The New Zealand Dance Company (NZ), Itzik Galili (IL) and Ballet Black (UK). The Russian star ballerina Diana Vishneva will give an exclusive guest performance with a solo by Marco Goecke.

The festive ceremony of awarding the Jiří Kylián Ring to someone who gives an essential and inspiring contribution to dance in the Netherlands will also take place during the gala.
