Moving Downstairs [encounters in open space]

Sat 3 July

Perpetual Beta reaches its conclusion with a special edition of our music and performance program Moving Downstairs.

Moving downstairs is a bi-monthly program that focuses on concerts, auditory performances and experiments, immersive sound pieces and collective experiences. Depending on the setting, the audience might be seated, standing, dancing, behind a screen, or specifically placed inside the basement of The Grey Space.

For this occasion there will be a live coding performance program in which Timo Hoogland, Jonathan Reus, Carolien Teunisse, Sabrina Verhage and eerie_ear participate in an audiovisual conversation. Noémi Biró actively engages the audience in her ongoing research on augmented reality. The basement becomes a room for positive interference and digital alterations. Siuli Ko will end the night with a DJ set upstairs.

The program is curated in collaboration with iii, Creative Coding Utrecht and Netherlands Coding Live.

Before the Moving Downstairs program starts you can attend the Perpetual Beta Exhibition and Closing Event with a presentation by the Perpetual Beta makers Luna Maurer & Roel Wouters (Moniker), Jeroen Barendse (RNDR), Carolien Teunisse and Sabrina Verhage, followed by a presentation by artist Constant Dullaart.
