Performance Situation Room "Closing Dinner" Amsterdam 2016
“... It requires a willingness to listen. Not only hearing what the other has to say, but becoming sensitive to how someone else is. We learn that by sharing notions of how we see ourselves where we are. It can be through food. Just by eating together. Or by spending time in each other’s places to understand how somebody creates space or well-being.” – Jeanne van Heeswijk (Slow Reader, 2016)
The public was warmly invited to join Het Veem Theater in a shared and festive dinner on Saturday December 17th at eight PM in Veem. It was the closing program of the house and a looking forward to September 2017 when the doors open again as ‘the 100-Day House’.
«We wish to bring those that are in some way dear to this house, like you, together on this evening and simply, but attentively share a great meal. We invite you to toast, taste, celebrate, reflect, salten, sweeten, criticize, envision and devour all the reasons that bring us together.
This dinner takes part in the context of VERY NOW #1, a collaboration between SPRING Festival and Veem House in which six young makers/creators present work that acts/operates at the intersection of theatre, dance, installation and visual arts, in a tour through three cities.
After performing at Grand Theatre (Groningen) and De NWE Vorst (Tilburg) VERY NOW #1 lands in Veem House from 15 until 17 December.
We are proud to present Samira Elagoz with new work in progress, Julian Hetzel with I am Not Here Says The Void (2014), Ola Maciejewska with TEKTON (2014), Rodrigo Sobarzo withremoTe sense (2015), and Oneka von Schrader with Panda Express (2016).
We offered a space for the public to come together and gather one last time before the house moved into the darkness that was lasting for 265 days before opening again as the 100 Day House in 2017. On this last special evening of the current Veem House we served Ethiopian food that was designed to be shared and eaten together. »
