Rotterdam Rooftop Days

Take your city walk to a higher level during Rotterdamse Dakendagen 2021

The preparations for Rotterdamse Dakendagen (Rotterdam Rooftop Days) 2021 are in full swing. From 4 to 6 June, we organise a programme of Rooftop Walks where the audience can walk across several rooftops in the city, in couples. From grand city rooftops to small private rooftop terraces. In case we are allowed to gather in small groups again, we will also organise Specials like concerts or film screenings on rooftops. On Friday June 4, the Knowledge Day for professionals and rooftop enthusiasts will take place.

View Conny Janssen Danst solos high on Rotterdam Rooftops

Due to the COVID crisis, the dancers of the Conny Janssen Danst Collective could not rehearse or perform in front of an audience this spring. To still make it possible for them to perform, we offered the dancers the best stage we have: the rooftops. Soloists turned their experience into a personal monument based on the strange context they live in these days. This resulted in three magnificant and very diverse registrations on three iconic locations in Rotterdam: Monuments in Solitude.

Watch our Rooftopics: interviews with rooftop experts

Research on the use of rooftops is, due to the COVID-crisis, more relevant than ever. For this reason we started our online  interview series Rooftopics. Léon van Geest, director of the Dakendagen, visits rooftop experts and initiators on ‘their’ rooftops and talks with them about development of these remarkable projects and their visions for the future. The first interviews (about Depot Boijmans van Beuningen, the DakAkker and Erasmus MC and others) are now online.
