10×10 June: try-out

9 June 2020

After being closed for more than 100 days, we’re happy to announce that we will open our doors from the 18th till the 27th of June. With a lot of warmth, love, the necessary precautions and an interesting programme! For 10 days Veem will be filled with a polyphony of voices again. Our program is all about try-outs: a try out for you to visit, for us to host and for artists to share works in progress in this new context


Entering a space created for collectivity holds new meaning after a period of quarantine and with all the many many issues facing the world right now, there is an enormous amount to talk about. That’s why we will start the 10-day programme with a Wendag (orientation event) to journey through the new ways of visiting Veem. With performative interventions of Maarten Heijnens & Anthony van Gog and MOHA Project. We will end with a celebratory drink to share our experience and toast to being able to gather again. 

During the first and second weekend theatre makers Rob Smorenberg and Francesca Lazzeri will join the programme. Both have been working in the shadow of COVID-19 and will try-out their new works.
