GREENHOUSE is a development network for dance, mime and performance initiated by BAU, Boogaerdt/VanderSchoot, Keren Levi | NeverLike, Nicole Beutler Projects and Veem House for Performance. The network aims to create a healthy ecosystem in Amsterdam in which artists stemming from these disciplines can flourish.
In GREENHOUSE we share connections, facilities, ideas and expertise. Together we claim time and space for exploration, experimentation and encounters. We join forces to create the support network that’s needed for artists to take root, simmer, grow and flower within the artistic environment. Over the next four years, the network strives to initiate and produce new work, offer residencies and internships, organize workshops, talks, summer schools and festivals.
BAU produces and co-curates multiple activities across the year.
Events from the GREENHOUSE network
COME TOGETHER is an annual three-day performance gathering with artists from Amsterdam. Produced by Nicole Beutler Projects and BAU, in collaboration with Frascati and the GREENHOUSE partners. More about COME TOGETHER and the selected artists at cometogether.amsterdam
GARDENING is a one-week creative incubator in which four artists are given the opportunity to simmer and grow new ideas alongside each other. They are given a studio space while being actively coached by professionals in the field. GARDENING is about planting new seeds, making, meeting, feeding, growing, sharing and cross pollinating each other’s worlds.
WE LIVE HERE is an annual summer academy at the end of the cultural season proposing time for experimentation, research and reflection beyond the scope of individual projects or production agendas. WE LIVE HERE invites professionals active in different fields of the performing arts and beyond to join a temporary community, to work and think together. WE LIVE HERE offers two Laboratory programmes with workshops, lectures, expeditions, How-Do-You-Work sessions and visits to Julidans.
THE GREENERY Four times a year, once per season, GREENHOUSE organizes THE GREENERY. During THE GREENERY people working in the Mime, Dance and Performance field gather for an evening of exchange and inspiration. An evening where we share and create discours around relevant topics, where there’s space to open up and reflect on artistic practices. THE GREENERY is a place for deepening and allowing ideas to ferment and sprout – guided each time by the changing seasons.
Each session is based on the current concerns of one of the GREENHOUSE partners.
