Roots goes digital

25 - 28 june 2020

Roots goes digital! Now that most of the original program has been cancelled and our trusted locations are busy making 1,5 meter plans, Amsterdam Roots moves this years festival to a new online space.

From 25 to 28 June 2020, Amsterdam Roots Festival will present, together with artists and partners, a multidisciplinary online program in which roots and identity are central themes. The events vary from online concerts, Zoom circus and dance workshops, storytelling performances, debate and an urban dance battle-workshop-performance-show.

On Thursday 25th of June we open with a program live from Compagnietheater, in which we explore new definitions of roots and identity through performance, poetry and discussion. Focus will be on the so-called Third Culture Kids: a generation that grew up between their parents’ culture and the one of the land where they were born and raised.

More information about the program will follow soon!
