Freakatoni Witchy Weekends was created in 2009 in Amsterdam to confront the international trend to institutionalise and alienate creativity in art.
It represents interdisciplinary, collaborative improvisations with an aim to arrive at real-time compositions for live performances. It is a platform for artists and public who are looking for a space to celebrate experimental art.
The artists who gather for the Freakatoni Witchy Weekends are musicians, actors, poets, singers and dancers from all backgrounds, ages, orientations, countries and experiences. These artists have a compassion to create real time performance with a vision for what, where, and how they wish to engage with public, in a varied program comprising dance, music, physical theatre, poetry and standup comedy; the next generation of cutting edge artists are given a stage to showcase their work.
Freakatoni Witchy Weekend 2020 performances take place on the bottom floor of the OT301 building, Studio 1 Theatre and BAR
Overtoom 301, 1054 HW Amsterdam.
