De Doelen Concert and Congress Centre, Kruisplein 30/40, 3012 CC Rotterdam, the Netherlands

“NEXT:Tech Stand – Social Technology & Art, presented by FinnCult & Classical:NEXT

Classical:NEXT was born out of the simple idea to bring the diverse scenes of classical music together and offer them a forum to exchange ideas and develop new ways for working within classical and contemporary music.

As part of our Social Technology & Art project, the Finnish Cultural Institute joins forces with Classical:NEXT to offer a stand focused on the future of technology in classical music. The stand presents organisations and projects which use technology to advance the classical music industry, grow its audience base, create new revenue sources  as well as new ways for artists to interact with their art and audience are exhibiting at the stand. The Finnish Institute’s Social Technology & Art programme aims to bring together new interactive technologies and cultural and creative industry practitioners.

The stand is provided by Classical:NEXT and facilitated by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.

8-9 August 2018
Tampere Theatre Festival, Finland
Cock, Cock.. Who's There? is an unsettling, touching and private documentary-performance of a young woman's research into intimacy and violence. Through online platforms like Chatroulette and Tinder, and through close encounters Samira Elagoz takes the audience on her journey of regaining power, reinventing autonomous expression of sexuality and attempts to relate to men.

TelepART: Sisus

24-25 August 2018
Lieve Vrouwekerkhof, Amersfoort, the Netherlands
As part of a Europe-wide tour, Finnish circus group Sisus lands in the Netherlands at the Spoffin festival in Amersfoort 24-25 August. During the tour, Sisus performs Mosh Split piece, a 45-minute outdoor show, which is built around a 9.5 meter-high truss structure. This energetic show contains a huge variety of circus skills both in the air and on the ground: trapeze, moshing, rope dancing, partner acrobatics, group spirit, humour and girl power. In the scenery, there is a camper van from which surprising characters and crazy ideas come out following one another. Dresses are made out of toilet paper and hairstyles get their finishing touches with vacuum cleaners.
