THAT WAS THEN THIS IS NOW

DE APPEL
 Nieuwe Spiegelstraat 10,  1017 DE Amsterdam
 UPDATE INFORMATION www.deappel.nl

For the duration of one weekend De Appel is Janus-faced: looking back to past achievements and looking forward to unrealized possibilities. Theo Tegelaers, interim director of De Appel and Ann Demeester, newly appointed director compiled a programme that connects ‘then’, ‘now’ and the yet undefined ‘later’.
 
With a polyphonic talk show including a large number of guests and hosts the history of De Appel is turned into a palpable experience rather than a series of written documents and photographs. A presentation by academic Marga van Mechelen and a lecture by French curator Guillaume Désanges shed a new light on the origins of De Appel as a performance-based space set up by Wies Smals in 1975. The production ‘Show Dance’ by Swiss-Greek choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis explores the shadowland between conceptual dance, visual arts performance and hints at the future collaboration between De Appel and the festival ‘If I Can’t Dance’ in Autumn 2006.
