PERFORMANCE PLATFORM

About

Performance Platform is a website and web app listing public activities from five different organisations based in Amsterdam: Dasarts, If I Can't Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution, NBprojects, School for New Dance Development (SNDO) and Veem House for Performance. In addition, Performance Platform calls attention to other performance-related events in the city and abroad.

Performance Platform is an entirely subjective, while broadly oriented mapping of the performance landscape. Besides being a user-friendly list serve, the platform aims to highlight pathways through the city, facilitating new discoveries across the various institutions where (performing) arts take place. Far from attempting an all-encompassing survey of the field, the platform’s organisers include information concerning performance-related activities that have captured our imagination: mainly in Amsterdam—to strengthen the local scene—but also elsewhere in the world.

Every month, the five partners come together to discuss preferred landmarks within Amsterdam’s performance field, unfamiliar artists, or events that arouse curiosity. We draw attention to the things that are already here, close-by, but which are perhaps overlooked, inconspicuous or as yet unnoticed. We don’t shy away from ‘big and famous’ either. Every month a new landscape of artistic activity arises—full of not-yet-visible links and possible interconnections, new perspectives, viewpoints and secret gardens.

Those who subscribe to the Performance Platform, get a monthly Letter in their inbox. The goal of this Letter is not to inform, nor to bring any 'news'. Until 2016, each month, in a rotating manner, Barbara Van Lindt, Anne Breure, Nicole Beutler, Frédérique Bergholtz and Bojana Mladenovic, have been presenting the platform’s readership with topics, ideas or people connected to their most current interest. In 2016, a new editorial board composed of Isobel Dryburgh, Maria Rößler, Marjolein Vogels, Annick Kleizen and Simon Asencio was invited to bring in their diversely informed perspectives and to continue the momentum initiated by the five ladies who artistically lead the Performance Platform’s constitutive organisations. Sometimes staying as close as to articulating excitement or concern from the life of the organisations, at other times drawing attention to complex and elaborate projects of others, the editorial board also occasionally extends the invitation to a guest to speak on its behalf.

Each Letter marks a point in time in which the thoughts and ideas on or around performance situate themselves rather freely in poetic, semi- or non-academic, invigorating, careless, engaged, frivolous and pertinent performance discourses at once.

The history and traditions of performance lie in the twentieth century. Today, this provides references, concepts, presentation modes, curatorial models, theoretical and philosophical ideas that infuse life in many different scenes. For us—a venue and production house, a dance company, a visual arts institute, a Bachelor Studies for Choreography and a training programme for Masters of Theatre—approaching the arts from a disciplinary angle does not correspond to the way we work, think and talk. Performance allows another perspective: less sticking to orthodoxy within disciplines, more addressing qualities of presence, the experience of an event, and the politics of show and tell.

English is the language most used in this international community and is therefore the one we have chosen to carry the Performance Platform contents.

NBprojects IICD Het Veem Theater DASarts SNDO

HET VEEM THEATER

Filled with voices during the year; old and new, young and established, coming from the arts and beyond, coming from Amsterdam and abroad. Always exploring what performance can and should be in movement, time, and discourse; questioning what we take as given, performing new proposals for ways of looking, and taking us on journeys to unknown worlds. Veem stands as a house for performance, dance, and discourse for making and presenting radical, daring, and experimental work.

We do this by producing and presenting performances on the cross-disciplinary field of dance, theatre, visual arts, cinematography, and music from new makers and by inviting work of international influential artists.
We do this in connections with schools and institutions with whom we share fascinations and this field. (i.a. SNDO, Mime, Amsterdam Master of Choreography and DasArts; Stedelijk Museum, SPRING, ICK, Oude Kerk, Nieuwe Grond – Theater Festival)
We do this in discourse by organising exchanges of thought, booklaunches, debates and salons.
We do this in going outside and working at, and with, other spaces and places.
We do this with you – the audience, artists, and all curious minds out there. The doors are open! Be welcome.

IF I CAN'T DANCE

If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution is an association dedicated to exploring the evolution and typology of performance and performativity in contemporary art. If I Can’t Dance initiates, produces and presents projects with artists, curators and researchers on the basis of long-term collaborations. These projects are presented (inter)nationally through a network of partner institutions.

If I Can’t Dance works along the systematic of collaboration. It doesn’t have a ‘house’, but instead produces projects and programmes that have different manifestations in different institutions within the Netherlands and abroad. One of our networks is Corpus, a European consortium for performance production including the partners Tate Modern and Playground Festival (STUK, Museum M).

If I Can’t Dance’s programme is structured in two-year editions, comprising of artist commissions, research commissions, as well as discursive activities including a monthly reading group. Each edition, defined by a certain field of investigation, engages a group of associated practitioners and institutional partners and unfolds along a travelling trajectory. Previous editions examined theatricality (Edition I), feminism (Edition II) masquerade (Edition III), affect (Edition IV), and appropriation in conjunction with dedication (Edition V) in contemporary visual art.

For Edition VI (2015–2016), If I Can’t Dance takes the notions of ‘Event and Duration’ as the field of research for its biannual programme of Commissions, Performance in Residence projects, reading groups, seminars and workshops. The programme of Commissions includes the production and presentation of new work by artists Leonor Antunes, Alex Martinis Roe, Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, and Joke Robaard. If I Can’t Dance also continues its Performance in Residence programme, approaching performance-related practice through production-led research, with four new projects by Erin Alexa Freedman and Lili Huston-Herterich, Fred Moten and Wu Tsang, Peter Pál Pelbart, and Vivian Ziherl.

Since its inception in 2005, If I Can't Dance explores performance practice in visual art, set within the wider scope of both stage arts and feminism. Our relationships with practitioners to this day are informed by our ongoing interest in current and past theatre and dance practices and the manifestations of feminist discourse in art production.

The programme of If I Can’t Dance is supported by the Mondriaan Fund, the Cultural Programme of the European Union (Corpus) and the municipality of Amsterdam.

NBPROJECTS

NBprojects is a vehicle for the artistic and curatorial projects of choreographer Nicole Beutler and her associates.

NBprojects is motivated by the desire to find, and propose, alternatives to fixed ideologies. It seeks to articulate the instability of the rational, create conditions for encounters and reflection within an artistic practice that naturally goes beyond the borders of constructed disciplines such as theatre, visual art, music, dance and performance. This motivation leads to performance/ dance/ theatre projects, to various forms of cross-disciplinary collaborations, as well as to the curating of conferences, lectures, festivals and the annual summer academy: WE LIVE HERE.

Nicole Beutler studied Fine Arts in Germany and Dance and Choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO), part of the Amsterdam Theatre School. Parallel to creating dance/performance pieces, she was a member of the theatre-maker’s collective LISA. After five years of existence as discursive framework and production platform, LISA came to an end. Nicole set up her own organisation: NBprojects. Propelled by the fundamental desire to ‘bring people together’, with NBprojects she continues the search for links and connections across the field and beyond.

NBprojects is joining the Performance Platform in order to expose existing artistic pathways across the city of Amsterdam and beyond its borders, to mark a landscape of affinities and potential connections and to relate individual practices to the larger context.

NBprojects is funded by the Dutch Performing Arts Fund.

DASARTS

DasArts is a master’s degree course within the Theatre School of the Amsterdam School of Arts. The programme is based on eighteen years of experience as an educational, production-based and research-orientated hybrid. Our two-year, question based, residential master’s programme functions as a laboratory and aims to improve the artistic competences of its international students.

Artists studying at DasArts define both their goals and the research methods they plan to adopt. Although the focus is placed on individual development, our main educational strategies are derived from the learning potential of encounters: significant collisions with peers, guest teachers and staff and the fostering of professional intimacy. In other words, the degree to which you are able to provide insights into your working processes to a group of colleagues and/or an audience (often comprised of professionals).

DasArts is an acknowledged master of theatre. Theatre is the backdrop: its history and conventions, the traditions and the avant-garde spirit. Performance is part of this legacy. Since this lively contemporary international scene of practitioners and theoreticians creates a cross-cultural critical environment, DasArts consciously brings it into its program: via guest teachers, advisors or mentors, the students themselves, or the books housed in the library.

SNDO

The SNDO—School for New Dance Development (School voor Nieuwe Dansontwikkeling in Dutch)—offers a full time four-year professional education course leading to a bachelor's degree in Art – Choreography. The school was founded in 1975 as an attempt to find new directions for dance next to the existing forms and styles that dominated the field. After forty years, the SNDO remains inquisitive, open minded, and in the foreground of progressive developments in the fields of dance and performance. In the curriculum, the school establishes the conditions from which the creativity of the student can emerge. Reflection on the specific qualities of dance and performance as art forms is developed, and awareness of the body and the artistic implications of working with it take precedence.

The SNDO has built an international reputation and has students from more than forty different countries. The staff and guest teachers are also international, and courses are taught in English. This international reputation, its strong image (inevitably followed by some myths!), and its excellent pool of alumni, all continue to contribute to its development and renewal, challenging and expanding upon established ways of making choreographies and performances. It is only possible to achieve this through the combination of an articulate vision on art, society, and education, and the translation of this vision into the school structure and the curriculum. Throughout the years one thing has remained constant—that which is expected from its students, the SNDO poses as a task to itself: continuous critical self-examination, experimentation, renewal, and the contemporaneity and progressiveness of its programme.

Over and above its core curriculum, the SNDO does this through active and critical dialogue with contemporary themes and politics within the profession; stimulating and initiating new developments and research in the area of dance and performance; by offering intensive courses and symposia, and by producing articles that can contribute to further development in the field. The SNDO collaborates with a number of local and international organizations from the fields of dance, performance, visual arts, and education: theatres Frascati and Het Veem, the fine arts institute If I Can’t Dance in Amsterdam and HZT from Berlin.

Like any educational structure, the SNDO is further recognized and enriched by the work of its alumni. Many teachers, dancers, and choreographers work in the international field. Within the large working community names such as Sasha Waltz, Martin Nachbar, Thomas Lehmen, Ivana Müller, or Nicloe Beutler stand as already established and recognized choreographers alongside more recent forces such as Alma Söderberg, Rodrigo Sobarzo de Larraechea, Vincent Riebeek, Florentina Holzinger, Lisa Vereertbrugghen, Simon Tanguy, Marta Ziólek, and Simon Asencio, to name just a few recent graduates.

The SNDO is part of de Theaterschool at the AHK—Amsterdam School of the Arts, and is accredited by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

As scientists predict the end of the planet, Beyoncé celebrates black feminism during prime time. Are we really facing the apocalypse, or are we experiencing the last gasps of the patriarchal world, as we know it? In a video and sound installation created especially for MAMA’s showroom, Caetano evokes such a sense of impending obliteration.

    Transmediale: ever elusive

    Various artists

    2-5 Feb 2017

    Berlin DE

  • READ MORE
  • In a world where technology increasingly operates independently of humans, where does the power to act and mediate lie? Throughout 50 events including a conference, screenings, workshops and performances, the festival programme explores how information systems and hybrid techno-ecologies have worked to destabilize the centrality of the “human.” The program presents new notions of subjectivity as well as of accounting for the increasing role of the “nonhuman.” The exhibition ‘alien matter’, curated by Inke Arns, refers to man-made, and at the same time, radically different, potentially intelligent matter.

    Noa Eshkol

    3 Feb-19 Mar 2017

    Amsterdam

  • READ MORE
  • In the 1950s dancer, choreographer, carpet maker and theorist Noa Eshkol, together with architect Avraham Wachman, developed a notational system for movement, which uses a combination of symbols and numbers to define the motion of any limb around its joint. The Eshkol Wachman Movement Notation (EWMN) system was born out of a social practice and way of life, as much as it was a visual means of representing (human) motion. The second part of this solo exhibition can be seen at Vleeshal in Middelburg.

    We look forward to sharing the artistic outcome of the working period with Phillipe Quesne with you on Sunday 5 February at 7 PM. Quesne started his workshop for DAS Theatre students by a distinctive trait of his theatre: the creation of other (im)possible universes, parallel worlds, alternatives to the current narrative, yet able to affect the so-called ‘reality’. Working with space, construction and temporary architectures, he articulated his workshop into two sessions, one in Amsterdam and one in the theatre he runs in the suburb of Paris, Nanterre Amandiers.

    Amsterdam

  • READ MORE
  • Nachlass (“legacy”) is an attempt to speak about that which one can witness: death. Stefan Kaegi followed people who were close to death, along with film maker Bruno Deville. They created a room with each of them, to keep their spirit alive when they are no longer here. Their rooms are a type of emotional legacy, registered by the one who will be departing. Nachlass is the legacy of those who are no longer there, a way to talk about death, a tribute to life. The theatrical installation is presented as one of five works of German collective Rimini Protokoll during Brandstichter festival. Also part of the programme is the multi-player video piece Situation Rooms (2013).

  • READ MORE
  • As one of the leading authors of the 20th century, James Baldwin denounced racial and sexual misdeeds. Choreographer Ryan Djojokarso sought inspiration for his new performance in his book Giovanni’s Room (1956). The American David is about to marry Hella, but falls deeply in love with the Italian Giovanni in Paris. We follow David through the night leading up to the most horrible morning of his life, when his lover will be gone forever. A dance unfolds where soft intimacy, masculine camaraderie, sexual tension, and an all-consuming self-hatred struggle to prevail. What happens to you, when you are so afraid that you can no longer love?

  • Immersion is the main focus in APNEA: the creation of a space in suspension, as though underwater; physically and mentally suspended. Deprived of the presence of any water, sound waves become the substitute of the liquid element. Aiming to ‘immortalize’ the body by means of air privation, specifically during water submersion, we are seeking to dive into a temporal territory. To arrive to that place of discomfort created by the lack of oxygen and water pressure. To dwell that state and unfold a performative event that will confront us with what it is normally taken for granted: the vital and constant presence of air all around us.

  • If arts institutions are, on the one hand, embracing the so-called “political trend in the arts” by presenting more and more socially or politically engaged artistic projects, on the other hand they often stay stubbornly conservative in the way they organise their own work. In search of structural alternatives, BUDA is taking the festival Buda Vista #10 as an opportunity to open up a temporary space – somewhere between reality and fiction – in which artists, curators and theoreticians reflect on The Fantastic Institution together. Issues such as power, money, space, time, curatorial practices, shared responsibilities, exclusiveness vs. openness, flexibility vs. stability, soft vs. hard, small vs. big, quantity vs. quality will all be recurring questions in our conversations.

  • With the 2017 programme, the festival Sonic Acts includes an exhibition, a three-day conference, workshops, masterclasses, films, performances and club nights at various venues throughout the city. Among the wide program of Sonic Acts, two events attracted our attention:
    A three-day conference at De Brakke Grond will explore the crucial question of what it means to be human, discussing wide-ranging scenarios for future co-existence, new imaginings of reality, the agency of technology and the transformation of work and daily life.
    Progress Bar on Fri 24 Feb @ Paradiso will feature among other artists Adamn Killa. Adamn Killa is a 19-year-old rapper from Chicago’s South Side. Adamn’s music is characterised by unconventional, sullen rhymes and pristine synthetic instrumentals.

      What if (…) – Marjolein Vogels

      What if I’m served by everything I see.

      This sentence is a tool used for moving the body through time and space.
      What if I have time in my hands is another one, used by Deborah Hay.
      This New York based choreographer and a founding member of Judson Dance Theater, the groundbreaking postmodern movement of the 1960s, visited Amsterdam this January with the performance Figure a Sea, with set and lighting design by Minna Tiikkainen and music composed by Laurie Anderson.
      The knowledge of these three experienced women is translated onto the bodies of the young dancers of the Cullberg Ballet. A staged dance improvisation guided by Hay’s philosophical questions. Sitting far away from the stage, I see 17 dancers improvising their ways through space. I imagine a sea of particles moved by invisible structures. The individual choices of the dancers were hard to see. Maybe, because I was sitting too far away or my expectations were a little too high since I was tremendously moved by a previous work of Hay; No Time to Fly, a solo performed by Hay herself in 2010 in Theater Kikker in Utrecht. Sitting close by, I then witnessed the genius choices of her body executing beautiful, weird dances. The movements were so full of imagination and incredibly honest; she created a world of colours and images that I have never encountered before.
      The first condition of happiness is feeling, and death deprives us of all feeling, Julien Offray de La Mettrie writes in his Discours sur le bonheur (1748). This materialist philosopher believes in happiness beyond reason, coming from the feeling and the senses of the body. Like in dreams: if the mind is not distracted by daily reasoning and completely surrendered to the inner movement of her feelings, images will appear sharper, actually penetrate and cause something.
      Last January in Kortrijk, I experienced a mesmerizing dream workshop lead by Male Kline. In my conscious dream, I was in an ivory tower with thick walls around me. They were stuffed with books, knowledge, objects, clothes, friends, social networks, etc. I was unable to get a grasp of the world outside of those walls. The only way to look out was to climb up inside the tower to see the view from the top. Unfortunately, I was not able to climb up nor to make the walls thinner or to find a window. Kline helped me climb up so I could eventually peek down over the edge for a short while to see and discover the world outside those walls. Since I have come to know that I am stuck in this tower, I am more conscious of that world outside. I just have to learn to see what is already there.
      What if whatever I see and can’t see is serving my moving body. – Deborah Hay
      A lot still remains unseen. Let’s try to find the windows.
      Marjolein
      – in conversation with Simon, Isobel, Annick and Maria

      • For the exhibition Ines Doujak. Not Dressed For Conquering, Württembergischer Kunstverein temporarily assumes the guise of a fashion store – to be precise, an assortment of various pop-up stores. “Performance, film and song are translations in motion of the rhythmic textiles of cultures which, using the off-beat phrasing of music, are a vibrant visual attack where the colors must talk to each other or literally argue. The intention is for such motion to break the cultural paradigm in which patterns exist only within borders, so that they may permeate the world at large.

      • READ MORE
      • PAF warmly invites you to the 11th Winter Update Meeting (WUM), bringing an open conviviality together to form an exclusive community during nine days of recreation, conversation, cooking, sharing, togetherness and social activities. Instead of working towards something, WUM emphasizes what can develop out of aimlessness, shared contemplation, engagement for no particular reason, specific ways of being together without any other motive than the necessity to continue. This is not a matter of just having fun but rather an opportunity to explore the boundaries of artistic, social and political production in a society whose foundations are changing and where being together without aspirations is becoming more and more rare.

        The Sandberg Series #4: Complexity and Alien Subjectivity (Art and Copernican Traumas)

        Patricia Reed

        9 Jan 2017

        De Punt

      • READ MORE
      • Our world of planetary-scaled complexity delivers a conceptual and functional blow to ideas buttressing (liberal) individualism – ideas which equally subtend most descriptions of the potency of contemporary art (in both reception and making). While much of post-Anthropocenic thought too hastily champions the dismissal of ‘human subjectivity’, this talk will address its necessary transformation for a politics (and art) commensurate with the scale of our reality and the alter-perspectives these orientations afford.
        Patricia Reed is an artist, designer and writer. She is part of Laboria Cuboniks and the Office for Applied complexity (OfAc).

      • From 24 November 2016 to 26 March 2017, Dutch master of conceptual art Marinus Boezem’s new site-specific works will be presented in Oude Kerk. In this church, he creates a vertical labyrinth in which you disappear and reappear. On January 14th, his eponymous performance l’Uomo Volante will be staged anew in the presence of the artist.
        In 1979, Marinus Boezem became the flying man – l’Uomo Volante – at the Vleeshal centre for contemporary art in Middelburg. Some 37 years later, the performance is being staged anew, this time beneath the Gothic vaulted ceiling of the Oude Kerk. The re-enactment offers a unique opportunity to experience a pivotal work from Boezem’s oeuvre.

      • As the Army of Love exclaim, “romantic love is saturated with commoditization. The socialistic premise behind ‘free love’ crumbles when desiring competition gets in the way, and in the age of hook-up apps, the possibility of free sex represents the liberalization, not the liberation, of love.” The introductory event at CASCO on Thursday 19 January will feature a screening of the docu-fictional film Army of Love a discussion about the Army of Love and recruitment for their forthcoming program at Casco in July 2017; movement and body-contact exercises; and a collective meal. In parallel, a presentation of Ingo Niermann’s Solution series and its latest publication Complete Love, will take place at San Serriffe, Amsterdam on Wed 18 Jan at 8pm.

      • Taking on another name and making that name spoken, can be a means to dissolve the self, the limits of self-expression, and the socio-economic and political status of a subject. However, what is at stake is not selflessness, it is a re-imagining of the self. Utilizing the act of name giving and taking is a way to playfully expand and dissolve the self, allowing one to occupy a place and mode of performing that houses debasement and in-authenticity in contrast to the Creative and the Original. The series Another name: spoken is curated by Tom Engels and will feature Group Show by Galerie, Eszter Salamon 1949 by Eszter Salamon.

We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear. Sister Marches are solidarity events inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, and organised by volunteers around the world.

          Is There Any World to Come?

          Caetano (BR, 1980)

        • MAMA presents Is There Any World to Come?, Caetano’s (BR) first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. As scientists predict the end of the planet, Beyoncé celebrates black feminism during prime time. Are we really facing the apocalypse, or are we experiencing the last gasps of the patriarchal world, as we know it? In a video and sound installation created especially for MAMA’s showroom, Caetano evokes such a sense of impending obliteration.

          I Look at the Moon and Think about My Daughter-in-Law

          Noa Eshkol

          3 Feb-19 Mar 2017

          Amsterdam

        • READ MORE
        • In the 1950s dancer, choreographer, carpet maker and theorist Noa Eshkol, together with architect Avraham Wachman, developed a notational system for movement, which uses a combination of symbols and numbers to define the motion of any limb around its joint. The Eshkol Wachman Movement Notation (EWMN) system was born out of a social practice and way of life, as much as it was a visual means of representing (human) motion. The second part of this solo exhibition can be seen at Vleeshal in Middelburg.

        • After working with Deborah Hay as performer/interpreter, Laurent Pichaud has been working as assistant to the American choreographer since 2008.  This performed, 5-session seminar is a hybrid form between an academic format and a situated performance. These sessions will present on stage some of the choreographic questions such a project gives rise to: an account of his experience in the archives, how we might apprehend a choreographer’s writing, translating as a dancer, working in situ in somebody else’s body of work.

        • Immersion is the main focus in APNEA: the creation of a space in suspension, as though underwater; physically and mentally suspended. Deprived of the presence of any water, sound waves become the substitute of the liquid element. Aiming to ‘immortalize’ the body by means of air privation, specifically during water submersion, we are seeking to dive into a temporal territory. To arrive to that place of discomfort created by the lack of oxygen and water pressure. To dwell that state and unfold a performative event that will confront us with what it is normally taken for granted: the vital and constant presence of air all around us.

For this second presentation, we have invited Holly White to think alongside us by exploring the relationship between writing, speech and performance.

          Holly White is an artist living and working in London. She works in digital media, sculpture, text, performance and video, and is one half of music project Goth Tech.

          In the fall CAConrad will return to examine how we are conditioned to consider East and West as life and death, as the known and the unknown forces of our world and how these directional archetypes help and hinder our lives. This is a love letter to the Future Wilderness of our world.

          7-11 Mar 2017

        • READ MORE
        • The international dance and performance festival Something Raw presents raw, radical, innovative work from the new generation of choreographers and performance artists. During this fourteenth edition, eleven productions will be presented under the title ‘Unlabeled: Celebrating Collapsing Categories’. However radical the differences between these productions may seem, they all throw classical notions and the idea of separate disciplines overboard. In a time when old ideas and categories no longer correspond to reality, artists go in search of a new language. Current concepts concerning warfare, commercial imagery, gender and sexuality are subjected to rigorous questioning and challenges.

        • A sea of pink pussy hats and protest signs. Worldwide, people are protesting in reaction to the inauguration of President Donald Trump: the Women’s March. During this program we will look at the activist as creative maker and address the importance of representation, the capturing and archiving of protest. We will engage in conversation with a few makers, reflecting on their work and how they relate to the contemporary political climate. How can we organise ourselves in a meaningful, inclusive and effective way to enact resistance? The program is a collaboration between Amsterdam Museum, Framer Framed and Atria. The event takes place in the framework of ‘Meer Dan Muze’, an initiative to highlight female creators on this specific day.

        • This PS, philosophy goes dark. It is time to explore a stubbornness of a different kind. Poetics and philosophy both hold pacts with secrecy but each has a different way of biting its tongue. Philosophy as project, poetry as form, and language as a constitutive constraint perpetually in tension with worlds, are wracked by ‘problems’ of obfuscation, ellipsis, encryption and ambiguity. With no desire to solve the puzzles of writing’s occultation, we propose a drift into the entanglements of poetics with techniques of camouflage, dissimulation, decryption, secretion, compression, and alliance. Over the four days of the event we will flirt with the prospect of losing ourselves in a sustained, headless excursion into a kataphysical nightside of thought.

        • Studium Generale is an extensive transdisciplinary theory programme that addresses all departments of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. In a 3-day curated conference festival it opens 
up to a broader audience. This year’s theme is “What is happening to our brain?”. Culture and brain form complex systems of influence, control and resistance. The brain seems to have been invaded by technology: machines increasingly perform the previously human tasks of language, memory, and imagination, with our learning processes taken up by algorithmic procedures. What implications does cognitive automation have for our brains and bodies? What is happening to our subjectivity, identity and free will? What about the artist’s brain?

        • Senses & Sensors is about perception. Not only sensorial perception, but also the way in which creative technology makes possible an intense way of feeling, tasting, smelling and moving. Art and science have an increasing stake in multi-sensorial experience. This is why STRP focuses on this far-reaching mingling of the biological and the technological, the physical and the virtual, the analogue and the digital. STRP Biënnale 2017 includes an exhibition with interactive installations, performances, concerts, a two-day conference, and masterclasses, in and around Klokgebouw at Strijp-S in Eindhoven.

        • Performatik17, the Brussels biennial of performance art, enters the intriguing twilight zone where artists – in collaboration with a number of different Brussels-based partners – tinker with the codes of visual arts and the performing arts.
          From movement in sculptures to the sculpting of movement: body sculptures play a central role in this edition. They are never monumental, and are always fragile. Performatik17 opts for probability over certainty, for the careful creation of social sculptures.

        • BMW Tate Live Exhibition: Ten Days Six Nights marks a new departure in the concept of the art exhibition: from a static presentation to an experience of art that unfolds through time. Situated in the Tanks, the first Tate Live Exhibition brings together an intergenerational selection of artists that have been invited to stage their work as a space that extends a form of hospitality or community, to other artists and visitors alike.
          The daytime installations act as springboards for six nights of ticketed live performances. With Melanie Bonajo, CAMP, Isabel Lewis, Ligia Lewis, Fred Moten & Wu Tsang, Emily Roysdon, among others.

          Sexual politics in colonial Curaçao: Lecture and subsequent workshop

          Dr. Rose Mary Allen

          27, 28 & 29 Mar 2017

          Amsterdam

        • READ MORE
        • The lecture examines the ways in which colonial politics of respectability, aimed at shaping ideal Curaçaoan male and female behavior, formed a response to racist representations of  black sexuality and character in Curaçaoan society. By reflecting on the discourses of respectability in Curaçaoan society, the lecture offers an analysis of gender differences in the region from a Dutch-Caribbean perspective and analyzes experiences of inclusion and exclusion within the wider Caribbean context. Register at pr@atria.nl. The lecture will be followed by a two-day workshop entitled Critical Perspectives on Oral History by dr. Rose Mary Allen at Atria on the 28th and 29th of March (14.00-17.00 hrs).

        • In some places they spit strangers out, while in others they swallow them whole.
          EXOOT – Tropical Healing is an exhibition and show where we can reconquer our exotic selves and think about cannibalism as a healing strategy for dealing with The Other. Beneficial therapy for the diluted identities of world citizens.
          Visual artist Jan Brokof is converting the Vriend van Bavink Gallery in Amsterdam into a theatrical installation; a pool paradise where tropic iconography is recycled: coconut juice, hummingbirds, helicopters, conquistadores, buzzing air conditioning units, Brazilian wax and palm trees.

          Breaking Rainbows

          Orla Barry

          29 Mar-30 Apr 2017

          Brussels (Be)

        • READ MORE
        • Breaking Rainbows uses the relationship between wo/man and animal, and the cannibalistic, symbiotic tension between (Orla Barry) the artist and (Orla Barry) the shepherd to reflect on the primal and poetic and unpredictable bond we have in the natural world. Presented as both live performance and video installation, Barry’s new work is a fascinating journey into the land of shepherding through the lens of “doing” rather than “observing” the job at hand.

          Performance: Saturday 25 March 2017 & Sunday 26 March 2017.

          I AM NOT ASHAMED OF MY COMMUNIST PAST

          Sanja Mitrovic & Vladimir Aleksic

        • READ MORE
        • In I Am Not Ashamed of My Communist Past, the Serbian theatre maker Sanja Mitrović and actor Vladimir Aleksić take on the recent history of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY), a country that only still exists in our memory and our imagination. Nonetheless, the fundamental idea of Yugoslavia – a multiethnic, multireligious and socialist state – is still relevant to today’s European struggle. Together, they investigate whether it is possible to remain loyal to the ideas that they once believed in. What is it that unites communities that share the same country? What remains of values such as solidarity and social justice in times of materialism and individualism?

          The Internet

          Mårten Spångberg

          30 & 31 Mar 2017

          Dansehallerne, Copenhagen (Dk)

        • READ MORE
        • In ‘The Internet’ Mårten Spångberg pushes the boundaries of dance performance. The piece is a balancing act between theatre and museum: music, dance and sculptures intertwined. The performance lasts for 4 hours and invites the audience to walk around, look, interact and even leave and come back a little while later. The title is a metaphor for a monumental but intangible structure with no beginning and no end. The piece explores the influence of digital communication on choreography: social networks, health apps, games, dating tools … are used to generate dance, rhythms and moods. The performance offers a singular look on the social environment in which we live.
