Munich, Germany, 14-18 May 2018

From 14 to 18 May, Joint Adventures / Walter Heun is presenting a selection of recent artistic works from the Netherlands that use choreographic practices and presentational forms which originate from other disciplines.

There will be four Dutch performances on show in Munich. The four performances will be contextualised with opening lectures and talks after the performances, to provide valuable insights into the artistic methodologies and research approaches.

In her work After Trio A, Andrea Božić reflects on the interdisciplinary work of Yvonne Rainer within an installation. Keren Levi’s The Dry Piece creates an intense, voyeuristic relationship between spectator and performer, slowly transforming into a live visual art installation. Arno Schuitemaker turns the dance on stage into a rave infecting the dancers and the audience with electro music. Through stroboscopic lighting he expands the stage into the unlimited immersing into the common space. Ann Van den Broek chose the format of a fashion show that is to be watched at close quarters, addressing her accusations directly to the audience.
