Bâtard Festival 2015, Closing the space between us

From 3 to 5 December in Beursschouwburg, Brussels
From 9 to 12 December in Veem House for Performance, Amsterdam

Bâtard Festival Brussel and Veem House for Performance present Closing the Space Between Us, the first joint edition of Bâtard Festival in Amsterdam since its twelve years of existence. One festival in two cities, in both cities one space only.

We open our house like a fort holding in the tumult, like a protest occupation. This year’s Bâtard is to be a safe space for dangerous ideas, an important space in which smaller spaces - the artworks and propositions - entrench themselves and begin to build an infinity of forms and thoughts. For us, the cohabition of many places in this one space as a way to create the conditions for temporary articulations and intimate or rough collisions. One shared multi-space to physicalize the shared mental space of the festival. One space where fictive and real spaces with their specific symbols and sensations congregate to become one single experience.

One space as a political situation. One space as a metaphor as much as a geographical location. One space in which there can be some ‘them’ and some ‘you’, but there is mostly an ‘us’. One space in which the space between us all is closing.
A space where we only seem to be in more need of the last weeks...
