During the fifth edition of the dance and performance gathering COME TOGETHER, over 40 artists present their artistic research. Dance,mime and performance makers from different generations and backgrounds convene to share their insights, develop ideas and present their latest experiments to each other and the audience. COME TOGETHER is a manifesto and a celebration of the many innovative and contemporary makers that Amsterdam harbours. A clarion call to the broader Amsterdam arts field to join forces and collaborate.
Dance pieces, lecture performances, 1-on-1-happenings and video installations: COME TOGETHER takes place in all the spaces and interspaces of the Frascati theatre. The festival provides space for experimentation and new ways of presenting art. There are palm readers (Janneke Raaphorst) and Economic Tarot Readings (Noah Voelker). Participate in a drawing experiment by How To Draw a Pony or join one of the ‘social role playing games’ by Áron Birtalan. LIPS&KNOBEL’s Rage Room is the place where you can let yourself go completely. And for the necessary relaxation you can join one of the Healing Spa Happenings by Nina Boas &Arlette van Laar or the collective meditation by Tea Teearu.

COME TOGETHER was first initiated by Nicole Beutler, Andrea Božić and Keren Levi in 2014, when they presented their work alongside each other. Since that time the gathering grew into widely supported event hosting 40 to 50 Amsterdam based makers of contemporary and innovative dance, performance, visual art and mime. This fifth edition is a collaboration of Nicole Beutler Projects, Frascati, Keren Levi | NeverLike en BAU Platform for Dans and Performance. For the first time COME TOGETHER invited a group of six makers and curators - João Dinis Pinho, Floor van Leeuwen, Fernando Belfiore, Elke Decoker, Ira Brand and Isadora Tomasi - to make a selection out of the 144 proposals that were submitted in response to an open call. They have curated a programme that represents the diverse and rich profile of the Amsterdam dance and performance scene.
The COME TOGETHER programme takes place in all the spaces and interspaces of Frascati theatre. Note that not all parts of the programme have the same audience capacity, so it may occur that a performance is full. In that case you can see another performances/work in that time slot and catch the show you missed in the next block.
