Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east


Artistic residency at DOTE

For two weeks in November, the studio at Lindengracht (next to the office of Dancing on the Edge) is turned into a laboratory for DIY virtual reality. From 9 until 24 November, Dancing on the Edge hosts the first phase of Personal Empathy Machine’s artistic residency. A new performance by Amal Omran, Hatem Hadawe and Kathryn Hamilton, that will question the limits of empathy by using the ultimate empathy machine: virtual reality.

This project is part of the European cooperation program Performance(s) between two shores. After a second residency period in 2017, Personal Empathy Machine will tour the different festivals and venues of the European partners.
