Listen to the first episodes of DAS Radio!

Published on

Very happy to announce that we have launched the first episodes of DAS Radio today

DAS Radio is initiated as an encounter to open up to the wider community the research and art practices of DAS Graduate School. 

The first three podcasts are conversations over dinner, conceived by students Max Gadow, Samara Hersch and Ira Brand. The conversations will be focused on aspects of art, community, and performance.

For each episode we invite a guest from within DAS Graduate School and an external guest to attend a work with us in Amsterdam. The guests then join us for a three-course home cooked dinner inspired by what we have seen.

DAS radio is not about critiquing an artwork but about the kind of conversations that can be opened up by an artistic encounter.

In episode one we talk about hiding and the hidden, visibility, and the gaze. We touch on the values of access and intimacy for arts spaces, the stories we tell about ourselves, and what kind of transparency we might need in talking about difficult histories. With: Lars Ebert from cultural institute Castrum Peregrini in Amsterdam and Isobel Dryburgh, an alumna from the DAS Theatre Expanded Curation profile.

The second episode is about artistic disciplines, identity politics as artists and audiences, and seeing and presenting work in different localities. How do we think about language and naming in relation to the art we make, do artistic disciplines still matter, and from which perspectives do we look at and talk about art? With: artistic director of Veem House for Performance, Anne Breure, and DAS Theatre student Rodrigo Batista.

In the third episode we talk about our relationships to objects in the theatre and elsewhere, touch and intimacy, and the theatre as a space of transformation. We discuss ways of being a spectator, how we experience time, and what we imagine the theatre is (or can be) for. With: Silvia Bottiroli, the new artistic director of DAS Theatre, and choreographer Oneka von Schrader.

DAS Graduate School
The Academy of Theatre and Dance (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) established DAS Graduate School in order to bring its master’s, doctorate and research programmes together under one roof. DAS Graduate School offers an environment where new ideas, approaches and art practices can be instigated and exchanged; it is a place of research and development, meant to have an impact on the future of the performing arts field.
