FLAM #9 serves a sizzling live art program with performances, audiovisual installations and unexpected interactions. After three years of mostly working behind the scenes, this new edition brings you a wide choice of local and international artists along with their works, which can be witnessed at close range. From a post-apocalyptic one-eyed bird of a cabaret singer named Puddles the Pelican, an earth eating cultural researcher, a rubbing expert that always puts pleasure at the center of work, to a bold musical performance questioning how we perceive otherness, each one of FLAM’s performances proposes a unique experience between the public and the work.
FLAM #9 is unmistakably related to urgent topics of our times. It questions how our identity, which is a process of becoming, is cultural and politically framed. How can we relate to one another in a time of imbalance? Or to the otherness in ourselves? FLAM is the undercurrent of our present society. Come over and experience it!
Indoor & Outdoor
FLAM opens on Tuesday 17 May with four nights of performances, audiovisual installations and choreographies in the gallery spaces of Arti et Amicitiae. From there we will move to a two day program of outdoor performances at the public spaces of Overhoeks in the north of Amsterdam. We close this year’s manifestation with a vibrant music and performance party at Sexyland.
Apart from the live art presentations, a public program of roundtable talks on themes such as the work situation of the freelance artists in the Netherlands, and workshops are being prepared.
