Results of HOBRA at Dutch Design Week 2016
The works created during the Dutch Olympic cultural programme HOBRA will be presented in the context of the Dutch Design Week on 23 October in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
In the period leading up to the Olympic Games ten duos of Dutch/Brazilian artists and creative professionals created new work. HOBRA is a combination of Holanda and Brasil – and it also refers to obra, which is the Portuguese word for (art) work. The Dutch-Brazilian duos worked in the disciplines of literature, film, theatre, music, dance, design, e-culture, visual arts, architecture, and in the field of cultural participation. During the project in Rio de Janeiro, the teams did not only work together as duos but were also challenged to connect to the work by other duos.
On Sunday 23 October, the results of this unique project will be presented in the Netherlands for the first time, in the context of the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. The presentation will take place in Strijp S (Torenallee 86, Eindhoven) at 3 pm. Entrance is free, but there's limited seeting, so please register here.
The Dutch HOBRA participants were: Sjoerd ter Borg (architecture), Sjaron Minailo (theatre), Jonas Ohlsson (art), Daan Gielis (film) Fernando Belfiore (dance), Yuri Veerman (design), Jan Cleijne (literature), Emma Rekers (music), Thomas Kuijpers (E culture) and Jörgen Tjon A Fong (cultural participation). The Dutch participants will be present on 23 October to show their results.
Brazil invited the Netherlands to contribute to the cultural programme surrounding the Olympic Games. HOBRA is a partnership between six Dutch cultural public funds: Fonds Podiumkunsten, Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie, Mondriaan Fonds, Nederlands Filmfonds, Nederlands Letterenfonds, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, and DutchCulture. The programme was produced along with various Brazilian cultural partners, including the TEMPO theatre festival.
