Saturnalian Festival of Lights in Amstelpark
The Warp presents Saturnalian Festival of lights: Congress of Glassolallia
From 15th of December we will present, in collaboration with The Warp, the advent of the winter festival with light installations, performances, gluhwein and soup.
SATURNALIAN FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS by The Warp
Het Glazen Huis, Amstelpark
Opening: 5pm – 7pm Sunday December 15th, 2019
Installation: December 16th 2019 – February 2nd, 2020
Each year, Zone2Source invites The Warp, known for their unique multi-media performances at the nearby Kunstkapel (www.thewarp.org), for our winter programme. During these dark days, Het Glazen Huis is the perfect setting for The Warp’s light artworks.
We’d like to invite you to the opening performance night at 5pm on Sunday Dec. 19th. This evening of performances in celebration of the Saturnalian Festival of Lights is based on the equation of light and glass. For this event, The Warp has produced and curated a set of specific works to explore the mysteries of glass, light, optics, reflectiveness and the unique spaces of altarity which it conjures. The installation and décor is a result of the performance of The Glass Chain Correspondenceby the October Collective
The night includes works from various artists. The Ensemble Todo Modo (Alan Purves, Dirk Bruinsma, Robbert van Hulzen and Christian Smith) will perform a set of Glassolallias, music made entirely by instruments of glass. Members of The Shark Infested Custard will perform The Gem Stone Operations, very miniature operas based on outlandish conspiracy theories. The Supernumeraries (Maria Mavridou and Izabella Pacewicz Wsocka) will create a movement piece based on reflection from Thru the Glass Darkly and The Afterwords Searchparty will contribute an audio visual experience The Precise Cut of the Sutra.
As always for these events, we welcome you with gluhwein and soup to start the advent of winter. Yum!
The performance night leads up to a light installation, which is on view daily from outdoors in the following weeks. We are expecting stages of a performance series in January and a closing event in February. Recommended viewing time is after 4 PM during sunset.
