GREENHOUSE is a development network initiated by BAU Platform for Dance and Performance, Boogaerdt/VanderSchoot, Keren Levi | NeverLike, Nicole Beutler Projects and Veem House for Performance. The network aims a healthy ecosystem for dance, performance and mime in Amsterdam, so that artists stemming from these disciplines can flourish.
In GREENHOUSE we join forces to create the support network that’s needed for artists to take root, simmer, grow and flower within the artistic environment of the city. Over the next four years, we strive to initiate and produce new work, offer residencies and internships, organize workshops, talks, summer schools and festivals.
GREENHOUSE is all about sharing connections, facilities, ideas and expertise. Together we claim time and space for unexpected encounters, exploration and experimentation.
GARDENING is a one-week creative incubator in which four dance/mime/performance artists are given the opportunity to simmer and grow new ideas alongside each other. They are given a studio space while being actively coached by professionals in the field. GARDENING is about planting new seeds, making, meeting, feeding, growing, sharing and cross pollinating each other’s worlds.

Four times a year, once per season, GREENHOUSE organizes THE GREENERY. During THE GREENERY people working in the Mime, Dance and Performance field gather for an evening of exchange and inspiration. An evening where we share and create discours around relevant topics, where there’s space to open up and reflect on artistic practices. THE GREENERY is a place for deepening and allowing ideas to ferment and sprout – guided each time by the changing seasons.
Each session is based on the current concerns of one of the GREENHOUSE

COME TOGETHER is a artistic gathering that aims to create space for experiment and exchange. By generating opportunities to grow together, these three days 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.
The format of COME TOGETHER is fine-tuned every year and different ways of selecting and producing are discussed. We like to keep the structure open to monitor its urgency and to keep questioning ourselves critically.
Last edition the program was “chain curated”: The five GREENHOUSE partners and one guest curator started this chain by inviting one artist who then invites another artist and so on, in order to arrive at a complete and diverse program.
