New work at Holland Festival 2017

Next June, a sinister fairground attraction will arise on the Amsterdam Mercatorplein (Mercator Square). We are very pleased to announce the Dutch premiere of Phobiarama, 12 – 20 June at the Holland Festival.

Phobiarama is Verhoeven’s latest ‘living installation’, in which he depicts a society obsessed with safety and perfection. Politicians, marketers and terrorists make good use of our alert state of being. Visiting Phobiarama will be an immersive excursion into our contemporary culture of fear.

Soundtrack for Truck Tracks Ruhr

“What had just been a normal street intersection is rendered strange behind the glass. (…) What the eye sees is acoustically over-inscribed or countered.”

Invited by the German performance group Rimini Protokoll, Dries contributed to the sixth edition of Truck Tracks Ruhr: “album Bochum”. In this project the audience is transported in a truck of glass past various locations in the city, each location provided with a different soundtrack made by a visual artist or theatermaker. Dries made a track for the local recycling company. Other artists participating in this project are (ao) Lotte van den Berg and Gob Squad (photo by Volker Hartmann).
