GREENHOUSE is a development network for dance, mime and performance initiated by BAU Platform for Dance and Performance, Boogaerdt/VanderSchoot, Keren Levi | Neverlike, Nicole Beutler Projects and Veem House for Performance. The network aims to create a healthy ecosystem in Amsterdam in which artists stemming from these disciplines can flourish.
In GREENHOUSE we share connections, facilities, ideas and expertise. Together we claim time and space for exploration, experimentation and encounters. We join forces to create the support network that’s needed for artists to take root, simmer, grow and flower within the artistic environment. Over the next four years, the network strives to initiate and produce new work, offer residencies and internships, organize workshops, talks, summer schools and festivals.
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.
GARDENING #1 (pilot) will take place from 5 – 10 April 2021 at Veem House for Performance and the BAU studios. Participating artists are Keerthi Basavarajaiah, Sofie Kramer, Lucinda Wessels and Niek Vanoosterweyck. They will be coached by choreographer & GREENHOUSE partner Keren Levi. GARDENING #1 is produced by Nicole Beutler Projects & Veem House for Performance.
