About 

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. 

Participating Artists

The participating artists are based in the Netherlands or come from different parts of the world such as Brazil, Canada and the United States: Maciej Sado & Andrea Zavala Folache, Toni Steffens & Sigrid Stigsdatter, Erin Hill, Esther Arribas, Fernando Belfiore, Jeremy Wade, Jessie Yingying Gong & Bin Zhu, Karina Villafan, Lyubov Matyunina, Mami Kang, masharu, Lola Bezemer, Mavi Veloso, Moran Sanderovich, Paula Walta, Philipp Gufler, Phoebe Osborne, Publik Universal Frxnd & Louwrien Wijers, Sarah van Lamsweerde & Leroy de Böck, Setareh Fatehi, Thais Di Marco, Vincent Riebeek.
