Cyberformances at MagFest KISS

balloonMagFest KISS, special wEDding edition, is a night of music and performance taking place in Amsterdam on the night of Tuesday February 18. The evening includes exhibitions of photos and drawings, poetry, theatre, sound improvisation, and two cyberformances taking place in UpStage: Balloon and LoveJam.

Confirmed times:

We recommend arriving early to be sure the stage loads before the show starts.

Balloon, by Petyr Veenstra, Gabriella Sacco and Floris Sirag, premiered at the UpStage 10th Birthday and played again for Art’s Birthday. A poetic performance in freedom and wonder, this is one to sit back and indulge in as the artists seductively draw you into a surreal and mesmerising journey.

lovejamLoveJam has been created specially for this event, and will be a largely improvised performance about, as its title suggests, love. It is created by a group of theatre artists who began experimenting with cyberformance in a workshop at the Transit Festival (June 2013) in Denmark and are continuing to experiment and collaborate online. The artists are Gabriella Sacco, Claudia Cantone, Elaine vaan Hogue, Helen Varley Jamieson and Miljana Perić.

If you’re in Amsterdam and would like to come to the venue, it is Slangenpand, Spuistraat 199, 1012 VN Amsterdam. Doors open at 7pm.
