    Participants ISPA's Dutch Fellowship Programme announced

    The International Society for the Performing Arts’ (ISPA) Dutch Fellowship Programme is providing three mid-career leaders from the Netherlands’ performing arts community access to ISPA’s extensive international network of arts professionals.
    After careful deliberation three applicants were selected to join the fellowship programme:
    -Tamar Brϋggemann, Managing Director, Holland Baroque
    -Malcolm Rock, Artistic Director, ODD Continent
    -Harmen van der Hoek, Business Manager, Club Guy & Roni

    This programme is financially supported by Dutch Performing Arts.

    Tamar Brϋggemann, Managing Director, Holland Baroque
    From 2001 to 2013 Tamar Brϋggemann (1981) worked in different departments for the Early Music Organization, famous for its Utrecht Early Music Festival. In 2013 she became the managing director of Holland Baroque, a young and creative international baroque orchestra based in the Netherlands. In her spare time, Tamar developed Wonderfeel, an outdoor festival for classical music built around the easy-going and audience-driven concept of pop festivals, which had its first edition in July 2015.

    Inspired by the latest developments in the performing arts, rethinking live classical music has become Tamar’s raison d’être. Her goal is to realize performances dissolving the boundaries between performers and audiences, generating an experience with minimum thresholds and without making any concessions to quality or integrity.

    Tamar holds a Master's degree in Language and Culture Studies from Utrecht University and has attended several Musicology courses at the Humboldt University in Berlin. In 2014 she was one of the global fellows of ISPA and a participant at the EFA Atelier for Young Festival Managers in Edinburgh.

    Malcolm Rock, Artistic Director, ODD Continent
    Malcolm Rock is a writer-director-producer of opera, dance and theatre. He’s artistic director of ODD Continent whose recent multidisciplinary project "Homebody" was a co-production with the Dutch National Ballet, North Netherlands Theatre and Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam. His forthcoming production "Morning Blossoms" is an operatic musical for singers, dancers and symphony orchestra.

    Malcolm was formerly resident assistant director at Melbourne Theatre Company, international director for Dansgroep Amsterdam and artistic director of Autonomous Productions. With long-time collaborator Remi Wörtmeyer he created work for The Australian Ballet and Dutch National Opera & Ballet. He produced award-winning protest theatre project “Trip en Masse” for performances in Kenya and at the National Performing Arts Centre Beijing.

    Malcolm was trained in puppetry by Spare Parts Theatre artistic director Peter Wilson and was assistant director to Simon Phillips (Love Never Dies, Priscilla Queen of the Desert). He was awarded a bursary prize from the International Foundation for Arts & Culture and a Nescafé Big Break for cultural entrepreneurialism. His arts writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Age and Time Out, among others.

    Harmen van der Hoek, Business Manager, Club Guy & Roni
    I work as a producer and advisor in cultural matters and have a Master of Arts specialized in Art Management at the University of Groningen. Currently I work as business manager at the international dance company Club Guy & Roni. With an output of more than 100 performances a year Club Guy & Roni is one of the more innovative companies for contemporary dance operating from the Netherlands. From 2017 on I will lead an unique interdisciplinary cooperation in the Dutch performing arts, between dance company Club Guy & Roni and theatre group NNT. This cooperation will innovate the Dutch landscape of performing arts by creating the first interdisciplinary ensemble of performers. I am also involved in organizing the cultural program of Leeuwarden European Capital of Culture in 2018.
