Moving Futures Amsterdam: Off the Grid

Internationaal Programma en Artists Meeting

In a month's time, the Moving Futures dance festival will erupt in the capital. Four days of plenty of dance and an extra programme for dance professionals, especially for the jubilee. In addition, the programme for international artists (in cooperation with the European Dancehouse Network) and international visitors (in cooperation with Dutch Performing Arts) is now widely available.

Moving Futures Amsterdam

WHEN: 22.05 - 25.05
WHERE: Dansmakers Amsterdam & Theater Bellevue

- Dansmakers Amsterdam, together with Dutch Performing Arts and the Moving Futures partners, is organising an international visitor programme from 22-25 May.
- As a member of the European Dancehouse Network (EDN) we organize a Carte Blanche-Artist Focus for international makers selected by the EDN partners. Artists are in residence for four days and meet the new generation of Dutch makers. Under the guidance of a dramaturge/mentor, they will experience the entire programme.
- Prize-winning French young maker Leila Ka has been selected by Dansmakers Amsterdam from the Aerowaves entries 2019 and will perform with her solo Pode Ser.




Artists Meeting for Professionals:

On 23 May at 13:30 we provide an artists meeting with the theme 'How to build a Sustainable Makers Practice'. Guest speakers: Roberto Cassarotto (B-Motion, EDN, Aerowaves), Saskia de Leeuw (AFK Fund) and Alida Dors.
We discuss this pressing theme from three different perspectives: an international perspective, based on subsidies and funds, and from the practice of making. More information can be found at ruth@dansmakers.nl




From 7 February 2019, the innovative dance festival Moving Futures will be travelling to various cities in the Netherlands for the fifth time. The most talked-about work by five national production companies brought together in one travelling festival. In a programme that is as refreshing as it is multifaceted, a quirky generation of starting and more advanced dance and performance artists will pass you by. They shine just as brightly on the ferry, in the cinema and in the middle of the shopping street (no dance thresholds!) as on stage. With the side programme of open studios, workshops, essays, drinks talk and bingo, Moving Futures puts you on top of everything. From musical duet to maniacal performance: see how a generation of new makers effortlessly stretches the boundaries of dance.



Moving Futures is made possible by: Fonds 21, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Dutch Performing Arts, Stichting Dioraphte, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, Provincie Gelderland, Gemeente Rotterdam, Provincie Noord-Brabant, Aerowaves dance across Europe - co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, Theatermaker-Theaterkrant.nl, Dansmagazine, Cinedans, Domein voor Kunstkritiek.
