In a battle between man and machine, four percussionists and three robots battle it out on stage in 'Ma(n|chine)'. Fedor Teunisse of Slagwerk Den Haag and composer & artist Zeno van den Broek talk about their upcoming concert at Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2020. Thinking beyond the obstacles of the COVID-19 pandemic, where would to they like to take this performance on tour to next?
Dutch Performing Arts and music festival Gaudeamus Muziekweek team up to present cutting-edge artists and ensembles from the Netherlands through a series of video portraits. In the coming weeks, we'll be sharing interviews with Diamanda Dramm and Asko|Schönberg, who talk about their inspiration and international ambitions.

Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2020 takes place from 9-13 September in Utrecht. This year's edition is like no other. Not only does the organisation celebrate its 75th anniversary. Also, because of the current COVID-19 measures, the professionals' programme that the festival had planned to organise for international presenters with Dutch Performing Arts fell through. Looking for alternative ways to present Netherlands-based artists and composers to international presenters, we've created a series of video portraits that spotlight some of the exciting Dutch work at this year's festival.
