‘...dazzling percussion group, similarly combined virtuosity and theatricality...’ - The New York Times
Slagwerk Den Haag (SDH) is – ever since its founding in 1977 – fascinated by everything concerned with sound, pulse and materials that produce sound. The podium artists and highly versatile creators and co- creators aim to amaze and enrich time after time, in every setting imaginable. Both on the traditional arsenal of instruments, as well as on porcelain, equine jaws, glass or 3D-printed instruments.
SDH works alongside trendsetting artists and makers, such as composers Steve Reich, Michael Gordon, Sofia Goebaidoelina, Kate Moore, Darien Brito and Yannis Kyriakides, dance company Club Guy & Roni, Nederlands Danstheater, choreographer Hofesh Shechter, Raschèr Saxophone Quartet and the theatre company of Boukje Schweigman.
The playing field is extensive; from Bang on a Can in New York to Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam, from the Holland Festival to the slums of Cairo and from classroom to the Dutch Oerol Festival.
In 2018 Slagwerk Den Haag reached an audience of over 44.000 people with concerts and performances in the Netherlands and abroad. Apart from concerts and performances in the Netherlands SDH regularly performs in Europe, South America (South American premier of Xenakis’ Pléïades), the US, Middle-East and Japan.
In 2019 Slagwerk Den Haag released the album KRYSALIS together with producer Talismann (Guy Blanken) under the alias of Slagmann.
