Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east


Rituals of Change Research Series 2021

The DOTE Rituals of Change Research Series in October till December 2021 are experimental theatrical gatherings, proposals in form, co-created with a brew of makers concerned with process, with time spent together, with (colonial) structures and belonging in relation to our bodies & habitat.

The series is part of a conceptual long-line from the online workshop series of 2020 to the DOTE Festival 2022.

Research #1: Calling Time

….Or how to re-gather. An evening of myth(un)making. And to mark the season (Halloween), we extend the invitation to the dead, our ancestors; to our fears and possibly our wildest dreams.

Saturday 30th October 7pm – 10 pm, The Marmalade, NDSM, Amsterdam, €10,-

Research #2: A Spoonful

…. Or how to share a meal. An afternoon program to don your apron for and roll up your sleeves to, to roll out your tongue to tastes with traces of (y)our personal histories.

Sunday 14th November 4pm – 7pm, Tugela85, Tugelaweg 85, Amsterdam, €15,-

Research #3: Space + ? = Place

…. Or how to be somewhere. A morning walk, talk and, above all, dance through some of the layers of the history of a structure, a place. To draw the future towards us, to celebrate.

Sunday 12th December 11am – 2pm, NDSM, Amsterdam (tbc), €10,-
