In Ven Salta seven contemporary female poets from Lebanon, Syria, Spain and Greece gave inspiration to a new series of 11 pieces for female voice and small ensemble. Besides the differences in religion, language and tradition, the Mediterranean area is a very alive and dynamic region with many cultural similarities. These are strongly represented in the works of all these female poets. In Ven Salta we work with these similarities and differences musically by contrasting and blending them into a very colorful canvas of music.
Ven Salta will be central in the Opening Night of the 48th Poetry International Rotterdam in Stadsschouwburg Rotterdam on the 30th of May.read more

'What will hapen when two time-dimensions (each with their own atmosphere and dynamics) touch or meet, will it create new dynamics?' This is the central question in Heleen's residency period at Amsterdam and Buitenwerkplaats. She is invited by Cultureland AIR.
Will the collision of the different time-dimensions create a new zone or a new experience? How will the spectator react to this visual dialogue between the systematic external time-experience and the comtemplative time-experience? Heleen uses her personal reflections in a 3dimensional installation Nomansland II, revealed and projected on several transparant walls.read more

First Cultureland Project presented: Sunday 19 March
You are cordially invited to see and listen to the work of Claudio Beorchia:
i Guardiani del Polder, Frammenti di una mitologia affiorata
"During my time here in the polder I did an astonishing discovery: I found an old document written in an unknown ancient ideographic alphabet. In these last days I deciphered it. The document is short, just some lines for every character, written in some kind of poetry. It tells the legends of mythological figures that inhabit and protect the polder".
Admiraal de Ruyterweg 181 storefront, Amsterdam, at 16.00
Artist's Talk at 17.00
Free entrance R.S.V.P.
In the polder, reporting for the southern gods
"The project wants to be a reflection about the water landscape of polders, a landscape extremely different from the one from which I come. The reflection is developed through a fiction: I imagine to be a hypothetical reporter sent by the Southern gods to discover this territory created by man."
