The summer academy WE LIVE HERE is a platform for artistic encounters initiated by Nicole Beutler, Marijke Hoogenboom and Andrea Božic. In 2015 WE LIVE HERE marks its fifth anniversary and we provide residencies for four different Lab’s of artists and thinkers, offering them a possibility to develop and deepen their ideas with the participating practitioners. There are still a few places available. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Writer and historian Sophie Berrebi will have a conversation with Joe Kelleher about this exciting new book about theatricality and spectatorship in the early twenty-first century and how European practitioners use images to address the complexities of the times in which their work takes place.
OPEN SESSION: DRAMATURGY AT WORK
Thursday 9 July, 16:30 – 19:00, Dokzaal Amsterdam
Konstantina Georgelou, Efrosini Protopapa and Danae Theodoridou together present this DRAMATURGY AT WORK lab; a three-day work session on the creation of working frames in dramaturgical processes. This lab is offered in the context of a larger research project that will lead to a book publication. During the open session, there will be a round table discussion with a number of guests that are invited to offer their perspectives on dramaturgy.
LECTURE MICHIEL VAN HOOGENHUYZE
Wednesday 8 July, 10:00 – 12:00, Dokzaal Amsterdam
Art historian Michiel van Hoogenhuyze will give a lecture on the creative process in art in the time of growing influence of science and technology.

We hope to see you at one or more of our public events!
