During Highlight Delft, about 30 installations and performances can be seen throughout the city center. This year we are extremely happy again with the beautiful locations that can be found on our route. Check here to see at which locations you can experience all the installations and performances!

The program and venues will be added to until the day of the festival, so keep an eye on the program schedule to stay informed of the full program!

Theater de Veste (Vesteplein 1, Delft)
– SH4D0W
– Forming Folds
– Face-2-Face
– The Personal Press
_SUBS: Personal Companion Kiosk
– And more program around AI coming up

Theater de Veste is a well-known location for many residents of Delft (and surrounding areas) where some 250 performances, events and programs take place each year. This year Theater de Veste is the location for a unique Highlight Delft event: the international success performance SH4D0W!


This is the first theater performance in which an AI (Artificial Intelligence) plays the leading role. During the festival, the foyers of theater de Veste will be transformed into an AI discovery space by Highlight Delft with installations and prototypes by students and companies.

On view, for example, is Forming Folds by Zeno van den Broek, in which he trains an AI to generate a new language using existing texts to distort and reflect, and experience digital space. Relaxing from all the AI input can be done in the installation OUROBOROS, an oasis of calm. Maker Jeroen Alexander Meijer leads you through a spatial composition of sound, allowing you to de-stress and experience the constant shifting of your attention.

Expo Arsenaal Delft (Korte Geer 1)
– Scorched Earth
– DELIGHT – DEsigning LIGHT for real-world challenges

The building that houses Expo Arsenaal consists of a collection of roughly three historic structures. It began in 1602 as an ammunition store for Dutch fleets. Over the years, warehouses, forges and smokehouses were added between 1602 and 1833. In 2020, the building was transformed and once again has three destinations, Hotel Arsenaal Delft by Westcord, restaurant Loetje and event location Expo Arsenaal.


Expo Arsenaal is the perfect location to bring a couple of special installations for this years festival to life. With Scorched Earth Filipp Groubnov recreates the Zone Rouge in France, a place that in reality is no longer accessible due to pollution. Sophia Bulgakova, with YOU ARE SOURCE PROJECTION AND REFLECTION, invites the audience to individually explore the space of her installation and, with the help of translucent screens, immerse themselves in merging clouds of words.

Selective Reflections

During the festival you will discover extraordinary Highlight Delft installations in various hotel rooms. For example Super Surface by Lilian Kreutzberger, who speculates about a future, completely digitized, world in which people are completely surrounded by screens with images and representations. In this world, the surface of physical objects such as buildings and furniture would be covered with a constantly changing “digital skin.
