There is just one week left to sign up to DIA, the Dutch Impro Academy, which will be led by 5 of the Lowlands leading improvisers, including legendary percussionist Han Bennink, Doek’s own Oscar Jan Hoogland and Felicity Provan as well as Ernst Glerum and Carl Ludwig Hübsch. As a true improviser, you should have no problem jumping on this opportunity right now! This year we have a fantastic group of artists attending, a number of which are repeat offenders. There is good reason why some of these artists, many of whom are highly regarded improvisers themselves, are coming back again to take part in this incredible artistic experience.
We’ve had a lot of great press coverage of the festival so check it out here…

Jaïr Tchong brought the Amsterdam Real Book Fietstour to life:
Are we there yet?
Onder intimi loop ik altijd te gillen dat Rotterdam zoveel spannender dan Amsterdam is, want in Amsterdam is immers alles zo aangeharkt en ingedeeld.
Frank Rosaly and John Dikeman will be doing a series of site specific outdoor performances throughout the Netherlands. The route is approximate.
The August 8 tour was exhilarating and exhausting. Big thanks to everyone involved especially Eric from JazzBlazzt and Gilbert from Koffie en Ambacht.
This tour is supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten as a part of the Balcony Scenes series.
