Doek is a collective of improvisers creating opportunities for experimentation, research and performance. Doek musicians share attitudes toward tactics, references, ancestors and antecedents in improvisation and push the musical practice forward in their many groups and ad hoc combinations. Through initiating, organising and financing concerts, projects, tours and a yearly festival, Doek has become a central platform for improvisation. As a partner to established or emerging venues and organizations Doek exposes a broad public to a vibrant world of improvisation.
Doek is structurally supported by the Fonds Podiumkunsten (Performing Arts Fund).
