Ruimtelijk Inzicht: veganisme
Feb 18 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Is veganistisch zijn wel echt goed voor jezelf en de planeet? Klopt het wel dat ik drie shirts voor vijf euro kan kopen? Hoe erg is het dat ik mijn half leeggegeten bord spaghetti weggooi en is recyclen nu écht nodig?

Loop jij wel eens rond met zo een vraag? Kijk met verschillende perspectieven naar een maatschappelijk onderwerp tijdens de eerste reeks van Ruimtelijk Inzicht! Met iedere maand een nieuw programma met experts die hun kennis delen en nog veel meer.

Tijdens de eerste editie gaan we het hebben over veganisme. Het lijkt tegenwoordig haast een trend om vegan te zijn en je bewust bezig te houden met waar je voedsel vandaan komt, maar is dit wel echt goed voor je? Hoe kan je gezond en lekker vegan eten zonder dat je portemonnee hieronder lijdt? Op 18 februari gaan we op deze en nog meer vragen in onder het genot van een (h)eerlijke maaltijd!

Entree = €3,- || 18:00-21:00 || maaltijd op basis van donaties

Space is the Place: Quin Kirchner Band + Dikeman/Lumley/Rosaly

Wednesday, February 19, music starts 21:00, entrance €6-18 (sliding scale)

Quinlan Kirchner (b. December 14, 1981) is a drummer, composer, improviser & DJ from Chicago, Illinois. Learning from Chicago educator, Don Skoog, his studies soon grew to include the traditions of Afro-Cuban drumming, taking him to Havana, Cuba to study under acclaimed percussionists José Eládio, Omar Rojas & Don Poncho Terry. His early exposure to expressive arts and dedicated practice led him to earn a Basin Street Scholarship to the University of New Orleans, led by Ellis Marsalis, at the age of 18. In the years since his return to his native Chicago, Kirchner has become a ubiquitous drumming force throughout the city’s diverse music scene.

With “The Other Side Of Time,” Kirchner creates a cross-genre, wide-spectrum exploration through his sonic personality. Grainy, soulful post-bop meets free-jazz. It includes original compositions, spontaneous improvisations, and solo drum pieces alongside interpretations of classicsi. Joining him in his working band is an assemblage of Chicago luminaries – Jason Stein, Nate Lepine, Nick Broste, Matt Ulery & Ben Boye.

In this edition we are going to electro-land, we have 3 live acts and a DJ set, each of them creating outstanding work in their respective fields. All performers have a unique take on incorporating electronics into their music, it’s gonna be a buzzzzzing night!20:30 doors open 21:00 CLOUDFISH

23:45-02:45 – Cantillate (DJ set)

Cloudfish is an exceptional duo of voice and violin.
A unique blend of original songs and free improvisation, they aim for atmosphere and emotion. Eysman and Le Clercq have developed a sixth sense for interplay. They are constantly reacting to each other. Their music evolves like a kaleidoscope.

Jasper le Clercq played for 25 years in the Zapp4 string quartet. He also plays the violin in theatre productions for which he composes as well. ‘Often humorous, sometimes moving, but always original and accessible’. (Volkskrant)

Hartog Eysman released four solo albums as an indie singer-songwriter. In previous projects he sang jazz, soul and broken beats. ‘Transports the listener, over mountains high and valleys low.’ (3voor12)

The songs are never once played in the same way. Every version is an fresh exploration. Where the adventure takes them is a surprise, a reinterpretation, a remix. The result is like a film, made out of sound. Textures and layers are created by Le Clercq’s violin loops and effects. Sometimes minimal, only small motifs colouring the silence. Sometimes dramatic, with rhythms and melodies building up to a climax. Their colour palette is broad and eclectic.
One hears elements of jazz, but also 90’s rock, triphop or classical.
Gerri Jäger is best known from the band Knalpot, infiltrating the Amsterdam underground as well as the European festivals with ‘raw electronics, wild improv and danceable dub’ (de Volkskrant). Following his conservatory studies in Amsterdam, the Austrian-born drummer immersed himself in experimental music, combining his drums with the kind of gear mostly associated with DJ’s. At Earsessions he will present his EP ‘Gerri Jäger Live at Vrooom’ and new unreleased work.Born in Innsbruck (Austria) in 1979 Gerri picked up the drums when he was 9 years old. After some brass-band and grunge-rock teenage years he studied jazz at the Conservatories of Innsbruck (AT) and later in Amsterdam (NL), where he graduated in 2006. Since then Gerri has been performing extensively in and outside the Netherlands expanding boundaries in music and its genres.


In 2006 Salvador Breed and Stijn van Beek met while studying Sound Design and Music Technology at the Utrecht School of the Arts. Ever since then the pair have been beavering away behind an arsenal of blinking banks in Amsterdam. The musical fruit of this friendship? Breek. A partnership that smears the boundaries of styles and sounds with festive flare. For their vinyl debut, a candy coloured cornucopia of elements are swirled and whirled. Braindance, electronica and neo-classical are festooned with dubby tones and underground grit in a unique sound of diverse textures and deep tones.

Within the improvised bounds, Cantillate engulfs the listeners minds with everything from sleazy synthesized dub to the realms of industrial Eastern inspired acid.
With influences ranging from the politics of the outside world to the flux of internal emotional states, Cantillate’s sonic safari effortlessly knocks down the brittle walls of genre while prescribing an antidote to the overvalued visual elements within our daily lives.

Other Futures in Space: Natasha Papadopoulou + Yiannis Loukos
Feb 23 @ 8:00 pm
Sunday, February 23, 20:00, entrance 7,50

Other Futures in Space returns for another mind-shifting evening. Join Natasha Papadopoulou and Yiannis Loukos and witness rhythm in motion in “Part Way Back”, a performance made especially for this event!

As a visual artist, Natasha Papadopoulou translates spoken language and body language into several mediums. Yiannis Loukos is an experimental composer and classical piano player. They collaborate as Miss Saturation, a free improv and storytelling band.

For Other Futures in Space they’ve created the performance “Part Way Back”, in which they deconstruct pop rhythms into indie music.
“Rhythm is a dancer, a song sung, before it succeeded into fragments of synchronic movement. It happens naturally in nature, but who keeps the tempo for seasons to change? Symphony is more than a musical form: it is an agreement, a collaboration of echoes and sounds that please the ears of many species.”

In the second half of the evening, Yiannis Loukos will play a dark ambient mix of his compositions, inspired by dancing on Mars.

Space is the Place: Naked Wolf trio + Jasper Stadhouders solo + Etceteral
Feb 27 @ 9:00 pm
Space is the Place: Naked Wolf trio + Jasper Stadhouders solo + Etceteral

Thursday, February 27, music starts 21:00, entrance €6-18 (sliding scale)

This 3/5 Naked Wolf formation wil play the first time especially for this evening. With new Naked Wolf songs! Naked Wolf: ‘With equal doses of unpredictable riffs, infectious groove, gritty noise and heavy pop, the result is a primitive avant-garde music that is driven by momentum.’

Felicity Provan – cornet/vocals | Luc Ex – acoustic bass | Gerri Jäger – drums


Jasper Stadhouders – guitar, mandoline, kologo

Etceteral are a duet featuring saxophonist Boštjan Simon and drummer Marek Fakuč. It is a vehicle for exploring repetitive, polyrhythmic electroacoustic music and draws its influences from Kraut-Rock and Afro-Futurism. Their purpose is to create a propulsive rhythmical feel by forging an immediate symbiosis between one synth and two acoustic instruments.

MUZIEK: Nora Fischer & Marnix Dorrestein HUSH
Ze schoppen al een tijdje stennis in de conservatieve klassieke wereld door muziek uit de barok en renaissance op compleet eigengereide manier te moderniseren. Zonder gedateerde versiersels, maar uitgekleed, op zoek naar de essentie. En bovendien met de elektrische gitaar. Speciaal voor vanavond proberen Nora en Marnix nieuwe liedjes uit.

MUZIEK: Ab Baars solo
De fantastische Ab Baars (tenorsaxofoon, klarinet en shakuhachi) heeft een volstrekt authentieke stijl en een sterke persoonlijkheid. Zijn solo-optredens zijn stuk voor stuk memorabel door zijn eerlijke benaderingswijze van muziek, geluiden, zichzelf en het moment. Binnenkort vertrekt hij voor een maand naar de States voor zo’n twintigtal soloconcerten.


Julie is benieuwd hoe ze van tekst muziek kan maken. In deze performance zet ze al haar dromen op z’n kop en vlecht ze hen in een staaltje vertelwerk.
