SAVE THE DATE: Other Futures returns in April 2020
Other Futures returns
Mark April 10th, 11th and 12th in your agenda! On those days, Other Futures Festival will return to Amsterdam to bring you a weird and mindshifting weekend and a day. Want to know more about our program? Subscribe to our social media pages (FaceBook, Instagram) and we'll keep you up to date!
CROWDFUNDING: We need your help to realise three specially commissioned events
We want to commission several artists to make work especially for Other Futures:
The Indonesian experimental band Zoo with front man Rully Shabara, Bhakti Prasetyo, Ramberto Agozalie and Dimas Budi Satya. Zoo bases its albums on the advanced prehistoric Samasthamarta civilization. Their music is a trip into a surreal future.
The young performer, sound & video artist and DJ Betty Apple from Taiwan defies all description in terms of gender, subject & object, body & machine, styles & genres. Every performance is a raving, multi-perspective dissection of the ‘perfect female’. Join Apple in an exploration of the universe and the self through sound and music.
The French artist, choreographer and writer Rocio Berenguer is working on G5: the first global inter-species meeting. With G5, Berenguer and her troupe of an elderly woman, a child, a meteorite, several plants, one animal, one plant-man and tree robots open up new utopias. With your help, Other Futures can have the Dutch premiere of these earth-saving negotiations.

New location for Other Futures: historical canal house Felix Meritis
Other Futures is one of the first festivals to be hosted in the newly renovated and remodelled historical monument Felix Meritis, set to reopen in the spring of 2020.
Originally built in 1776 the building has always served as a location for fine arts and science, varying from live music in the concerthall and drawing classes in the drawing room to stargazing through a telescope on the rooftop observatory.
