OT301 Building Amsterdam Studio 1 Theatre and BAR.
Overtoom 301, 1054 HW Amsterdam
The OT301 was squatted by artists in Amsterdam in the early 2000’s. Two years later is was legitimized as a Culture Centre for diverse community and international art activities. The building is in old west central Amsterdam, rumbled between the constant renovations and graffiti. It is set right on the Vondelpark, the largest park in the city.
The artists who gather for the Freakatoni Witchy Weekends project 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 2019 performances take place August 2-3 & 9-10 & 16-17 on the bottom floor of the OT301 building. Each evening is in two parts with an event in the Studio 1 theatre, followed by a Music Theatre event in the BAR area finishing each night with a live band. Each event is accompanied by MC an Performance Artist, and illuminated by a distinguished real time light designer.
Doors open at 19:30, events begin at 20:00 until 23:00. The entrance fee for public is €5 and the drinks at the bar are served at affordable prices. Come join the artists at the OT301 with their events, live band, smoking room and bar in an open atmosphere to engage in the celebration of experimental Performance Art and Music at its best.
