Due to the corona measures, COME TOGETHER #6 cannot be a public event this year. We would however like to share with you the artist selection for this edition: Antonia Steffens, ARIAH LESTER, Astrit Ismaili, Burning Blue, Charles Pas, Courtney May Robertson & Paul Sixta, Keren Levi, Lucia Fernandez-Santoro, Mami Kang and Maria Magdalena Kozłowska would have shared their ideas and works-in-progress with us. These makers will continue to work on their projects in our studio spaces at BAU and Veem House for Performance. On these pages you can read more about what they are working on. Follow @cometogetheramsterdam on Instagram or Facebook for updates about future opportunities to see this beautiful work come to fruition.
COME TOGETHER aims to create space for experiment and exchange. By generating opportunities to grow together, we hope to contribute to a fertile breeding ground for the Amsterdam performance, dance and mime scene. COME TOGETHER is not a festival in the classical sense of the word. Rather than presenting finished pieces, it provides a platform for all forms of sharing: works-in-process, experiments, performance excerpts, installations, talks and workshops.
Over the last three editions, the COME TOGETHER program was curated from submitted proposals following an open call, hosting a large community of up to 50 artists. Due to the corona measures we had to downscale the program for COME TOGETHER #6 considerably, inviting 10 artists in total to participate. Through personal invitation, the curation team strove to gather an inspiring and multi-facetted group of outspoken artists to share their current fascination and artistic search.
COME TOGETHER was first initiated by Nicole Beutler, Andrea Božić and Keren Levi in 2014, when they presented their work alongside each other. Since that time the gathering grew.
COME TOGETHER #6 is a GREENHOUSE project in collaboration with Frascati.
GREENHOUSE is a new development network by BAU Platform for Dance and Performance, Boogaerdt/VanderSchoot, Keren Levi | NeverLike, Nicole Beutler Projects and Veem House for Performance.
