06/03: Film Special 'Barbie'

Together with ESSN-Rotterdam, you are invited to their monthly film night on campus. 
To celebrate the upcoming International Women's day (March 8), they will screen Barbie.

About the movie:
"She's everything. He's just Ken."

Barbie and Ken are having the time of their lives in the colorful and seemingly perfect world of Barbie Land. However, when they get a chance to go to the real world, they soon discover the joys and perils of living among humans. For Ken that means something with horses and a thing called patriarchy. Barbie finds out she’s not so stereotype as she thought.

As an audience you will quickly see behind the bubblegum pink world and hear one of the best speeches ever.

27/03: NEXT dance performance

Meet a new generation of dance makers in Conny Janssen Danst's project: NEXT. It will be kicked off by choreographer Antonin Comestaz and 7 young dancers.

Conny Janssen Danst has been offering opportunities to budding dance makers for more than ten years with the talent development project DANSLOKAAL. In the new project NEXT, Conny Janssen selects makers who are already somewhat further along in their careers. For the first edition, Antonin Comestaz will take on the challenge of developing new work with seven dancers and he will bring this to the Erasmus Pavilion theater, among other places.

After the performance, the audience gets to talk to Antonin and several dancers about the making of a show, as well as the daily life of a dancer. The chance to finally ask how many hours a day they rehearse, whether to eat before or after the performance and how, as a choreographer, you make the dancers move exactly as you envision.
