We’re looking at others, but are we seeing anyone? Are we still there for the other in a world that is becoming more and more virtual and distant? This is the theme of a performance with Danielle van Vree that will be performed several times at the Zuidas this month.The performance is called Act of Seeing, lasts thirty minutes, is free of charge and takes place in both Dutch and English.

The programme looks like this. On Thursday 19 and 26 September and Friday 20 and 27 September, interested parties can gather at both 12.30 and 17:00 at the entrance to the Circl sustainable pavilion on Gustav Mahlerplein 1B.

On 19 September, philosopher Rob van Gerwen will give a lecture on the importance of contact with the other. The lecture lasts 45 minutes and will be followed by the performance. For this lecture/performance one has to gather in front of café Ox & Bucks on the Zuidplein at 15.45 hours.

If you are interested in art and architecture in the Zuidas, which will also include ‘seeing the other’, you can join AkzoNobel Essential Art Space, Christian Neefestraat 2, on Thursday 26 September at 3 pm. After an art tour, the participants will walk to Circl, where the performance will start at 5 pm.

Due to the maximum number of participants, interested parties are kindly requested to register in advance via reserveren.performance@gmail.com. In case of bad weather, the performance will continue and an umbrella can offer a solution. The location is easily accessible by public transport, such as the North/South line.

The following people are involved in the programme: Huug van Tienhoven, Luc van Esch, Anna Benti, Kim Verbeke, Dennis Tiecken and students of the Gerrit van der Veen College. Iris Dik coordinates the programme.
