NEWSLETTER BAU #4 - 2019
A tiny newsletter this time, nonetheless filled to the brim with invitations and dates for you to take note of. First of all we're happy to tell you that Come Together (our yearly gathering) is slowly awakening again and we're looking for proposals from dance, performance and mime artists! Furthermore we would like to invite you to two events that are coming up: the next Open BAU Meeting with our Agency Reseach as topic and the presentation of the BAU LAB on BioArt and performance. Lastly there's also some SED news to be aware of.
So take your agenda and write down the following dates:
- 20th of November: Open BAU Meeting #agencymatters @ Veem
- 28th of November: presentation of the BioArt meets Performance BAU LAB @ Waag
- 1st of December: Deadline Open Call Come Together #5
- 2nd of December: Deadline for the SED
Besides these lovely invitations there's also some devastating policy news, a.k.a. budget cuts for the performing arts. Please raise your voice by sending an email to the spokespersons for culture who are in the Tweede Kamer (House of Representatives) before the 18th of November.
OPEN BAU MEETING #AGENCYMATTERS
The core of this meeting will then be dedicated to the BAU Agency Research Project, a research into the possibilities of an agency that could potentially sell and possibly produce the work of the independent makers. This project is led by BAU Core Team members, Marion Tränkle and Michael Jahoda. During the meeting they will reveal the results of the preliminary independent makers survey and will physically engage all the participants in a "live survey" action.

OPEN CALL COME TOGETHER #5
Get your proposal ready for this years Come Together! :)
Nicole Beutler Projects, Keren Levi | NeverLike, BAU and Frascati are pleased to invite you to take part in the fifth edition of COME TOGETHER: a public gathering offering a stage to artists from the dance, performance and mime field in Amsterdam. This three-day event creates time and space for experimentation, for the unknown to happen, for new proposals of art making and for different approaches to encounter a public.
Makers from dance, performance, mime and all related arts disciplines are welcome to submit their proposals by the 1st of December 2019.
PRESENTATION OF BAU LAB: BIOART MEETS PERFORMANCE
On 28 November, 2019 the participants of the BAU LAB will give an informal presentation at the Theatrum Anatomicum of Waag | technology & society of the results of the upcoming BAU LAB BioArt meets Performance. Prior to this presentation we will bring four specialists from the field of BioArt, scientists and visual artists together with a group of twelve choreographers and performance makers during a four-day performance laboratory.
The field of BioArt, in which living matter such as bacteria and microorganisms are used to discover the impact of biotechnology and science on our contemporary society and culture, will be linked to the performing arts to investigate how the meeting of these two disciplines can create new perspectives about both the body and living matter.
Kuang-Yi Ku, Pei-Ying Lin, Arjen Mulder and Lotte Pet are invited to provide insight into their BioArt practices which will serve as inspiration for the choreographers and performance makers who will create material during the days. The results of these four days of experimentation will be presented in the form of short performances.
