RESIDENCE 2: Rotterdam

17–26 October

In Rotterdam, the second residency will be hosted by Dansateliers and will take place in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, parallel to the exhibition ‘From Bosch to Bruegel - Uncovering everyday life’. The exhibition uncovers everyday life in the sixteenth century: a world of brothels, skating parties, dancing peasants and quacks. 16th century society is depicted with irony and self-mockery in approximately forty paintings and equally as many prints.


Rotterdam based choreographer Connor Schumacher and video artist Luis Alonso Zertuche will work closely together on a multi layered installation, giving the audience another perspective on everyday life. They will be in residence in the museum from October 12 until October 25 working within the art studio, close to the entrance hall. The other four artists will join them from October 17 onwards, to further explore the subject of audience development, bringing together the three-dimensional body in movement alongside paintings of old masters in museum spaces. The artists will be offered an informative programme with experts, such as Friso Lammertse, curator of the exhibition, visual artist Olphaert den Otter and Head of the education department of the National Gallery, Gill Hart.
