Since 2011, STEIM has been collaborating with one of the few monthly experimental series in Amsterdam, OORSPRONG. The series is built upon the exciting concept of presenting a one-night-only cross-disciplinary lineup of improvisors.
To keep things fresh, the general rule at OORSPRONG that no artist performs more than once per season. This goes for curators as well, who are mixed up every edition to encourage both the curators and artists to get out of their social/artistic/improvised comfort zones and take risks. Jazz improvisors meet dancers, live electronic sound meets performance art, AV meets poetry. OORSPRONG is often exhilarating, always surprising, and never the same.
