COME TOGETHER #7 (cancelled)
– Update January 5th: Due to current COVID-19 restrictions this event is cancelled. –
On January 13th, the 7th edition of the three day gathering COME TOGETHER kicks off in all the spaces of Frascati Theater where twenty makers will show and test their new ideas; short sketches, wild plans or poetic experiments. COME TOGETHER offers the invited artists the opportunity to try out things in the theater that they normally don’t have the possibility to do and to share them immediately with an audience. The gathering is open to surprises and unexpected outcomes. In experiment lies renewal and change.
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. Over the last editions, the programme was curated from submitted proposals following an open call, hosting a large community of up to 50 artists. This year, the program is “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.
In addition to the three-day event in Frascati, COME TOGETHER #7 will also organise a program of workshops in Veem House For Performance.
