Coming up shortly is 24H East, the yearly opportunity to test the energy of this part of town.
We teamed up with east Amsterdam dance theater Don't Hit Mama and visual artist Michiel Voet, who will take you on a journey. With stories and images about migration, Dutch colonial history and how dance brings together different worlds.
A couple of young hiphop dancers surface in the Lloyd Hotel restaurant. They invite visitors to join them to an upstairs space where dancers and large scale photographed Family Portraits tell a story.
About traveling to another continent. About lasting Javanese traces in Dutch culture. About losing things and finding things back.
Don't Hit Mama is known for its innovative dance performance from hiphop sources, and has a longstanding work relation with visual artist Michiel Voet. Inspired by the remarkable biographical stories of these dancers, Voet together with artistic leader Bart Deuss, started this project to portray the dancers in a theatrical style a year ago.
