Spectra | Studio, Marci Panis, Marcusstraat 52 | 1D, Amsterdam

Let us gather in a Void – An empty space. A vacuum. An opening. A gap.
Let us gather in a Dream – A space we visit in our sleep.
Let us gather in the Night Sky – The great black vault over the earth.

Let us gather in Vodrenisky.

The Void, the Dream and the Night Sky Spectra | Salon is part of the series of evenings we are hosting this autumn and winter. We open up our studio to guests to explore the porous and fluid spaces we inhabit, produce, embody, imagine, adapt to, demolish, re-construct and share.

Let us gather in a Cube – a hollow symmetrical three-dimensional shape with six equal sides.
Let us gather in a Salon – A (with)drawing room in a house where guests assemble and may be entertained.
Let us gather in an Aquarium - a glass-sided tank in which living organisms are kept for exhibit or study.

Let us gather in an Aquaculon.

The Cube, The Salon and the Aquarium is the first Spectra | Salon in the series of evenings we are hosting this autumn. We open up our studio to explore the porous and fluid spaces we inhabit, produce, embody, imagine, adapt to, demolish, deconstruct and share.

The summer academy WE LIVE HERE is a platform for artistic encounters initiated by Nicole Beutler, Marijke Hoogenboom and Andrea Božić. As in previous editions we invite professionals active in different fields of the performing and visual arts to join this temporary community. With WE LIVE HERE we want to keep creating space to come together, to encounter, to work and think together beyond the scope of individual projects or production agendas.

The summer academy takes on a slightly different shape each year. For this edition we invited Mala Kline again to set up a study room where we will together explore emergent language or ways to articulate knowledge that emerges from embodied practices.

On the 18th, 19th & 20th of January 2017, the third edition of COME TOGETHER takes place in the Frascati theatre in Amsterdam. Fifty performance makers from different fields will come together to share ideas and present their work.

What started in 2014 as a mini-festival by initiators/peers Nicole Beutler, Keren Levi and Andrea Božić, 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.

The summer academy WE LIVE HERE is a platform for artistic encounters initiated by Nicole Beutler, Marijke Hoogenboom and Andrea Božić, with a sixth edition in 2016. Artists, thinkers and other creatives meet each other to exchange ideas and share their work practices. During this sixth edition we focuse on ‘time’. Together with Mala Kline and her vision on dreams we explore different aspects of this theme. This year, WE LIVE HERE is invited to organize the academy at Grootlab, the new AHK location for the masters programmes DAS Theatre (former DasArts) and DAS Choreography (former Amsterdam Master of Choreography) in Amsterdam-Noord.

A three day festival with performance makers from Amsterdam

26 - 28 november 2015 | Frascati, Amsterdam

Following COME TOGETHER: Beauty, Bauhaus & The Beast in 2014, performance makers Andrea Božić, Keren Levi and Nicole Beutler now initiate a second festival edition in the spirit of BAU - a platform for dance and performance and curated in collaboration with Lara Staal | Frascati. In collaboration with BAU, Frascati and Veem House for Performance, the Amsterdam’s interdisciplinary scene takes center stage.

The summer academy WE LIVE HERE marks its fifth anniversary! The platform for artistic encounters initiated by Nicole Beutler, Marijke Hogenboom and Andrea Bozic marks its fifth anniversary! WE LIVE HERE 2015 provides residencies for four different Lab’s of artists and thinkers, offering them a possibility to develop and deepen their ideas with the participating practitioners. Next to the different Lab’s there will be HOW DO YOU WORK? conversations with artists present in Julidans, and lectures and presentations open to the public. 

We are proud and happy to present the WE LIVE HERE: Mapping Spaces, 2014 edition. As in the previous three editions, WE LIVE HERE will once again be gathering together a temporary community of professionals from the performing arts, visual arts and beyond, offering a space for encounters – a space to work and think together.

A festival of similarity and difference

We are proud and happy to present the WE LIVE HERE: An Academy 2013 programme. As in the previous two editions, WE LIVE HERE will once again be gathering together a temporary community of professionals from the performing arts and beyond, offering a space for encounters – a space to work and think together.
