Over the 18th, 19th & 20th of January 2017, the third edition of COME TOGETHER will transpire in the Frascati theater’s in Amsterdam. Fifty performance makers from different fields will come together over these days to share ideas and present their work.
What started in 2014 as a mini-festival by initiators/peers Nicole Beutler, Keren Levi and Andrea Bozic, to gather and show their work alongside each other, grew into a second edition in 2015 including works by Amsterdam artists of all generations and disciplines such as music, dance and contemporary art.
We are now at the beginning of a new arts funding period - an exciting time full of uncertainty and questions - COME TOGETHER # 3 grows again and acts as an appeal to the Amsterdam art field to come together and demonstrate that the field is still very much alive and kicking. COME TOGETHER # 3 is a performed manifesto and celebration of the many innovative contemporary makers that Amsterdam hosts. Over these three days approximately 50 independent choreographers, musicians, artists, dramatists and thinkers from different generations and backgrounds come together to share knowledge, develop concepts, meet coleagues and present their ideas to the public. The participants will utilize the space and time in a way that has not been possible elsewhere in our current and recent climate. The works will offer a range whether it is a short try-out performance, an interdisciplinary dance piece, a multimedia lecture, a workshop, an artistic manifesto or a performance in print; rough, unpolished, exploring, visionary and challenging. During COME TOGETHER #3 both creators and audiences get the chance to discover and experience the work in all its facets within one context.
COME TOGETHER is curated by Keren Levi, Nicole Beutler, Andrea Božic´ this year in cooperation with Eva Villanueva. It is produced by NBprojects and NeverLike, in coproduction with TILT, BAU and Frascati, supported by ICK and Veem House for Performance.
