A look behind the scenes of Amsterdam dance workspaces.
In this pandemic world, where little work could be presented, artists and choreographers have been working hard behind the scenes, creating new pieces. That is why this year's OFF VENUE tour, set on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 July in the afternoon, will guide you past several Amsterdam dance workspaces. The 'kitchens' of the dance and performance world, where makers cook up their performances.
This OFF VENUE tour lets you see exciting works by emerging choreographers and performance artists, while discovering the iconic buildings in which the dance studios are located, from former warehouse to monumental church.
With the body extensions and wearable musical instruments of Astrit Ismaili. An improvisation between hip-hop dancer Shailesh Bahoran and Indian sarod player Avi Kishna. Taming of a horse as a metaphor for self-control in Courtney May Robertson's multimedia performance. And a choreographic clash between geological elements, the digital world and machines by choreographer Elisa Zuppini with DJ James Whipple (M.E.S.H.) and dancer Federica Dalla Pozza.
Come on a bike ride with us!
