Open Call Time To Perform

A unique performance night in the gallery of Assembled by Root. 

On Thursday night the 10th of January 2019, a special performance night will take place in the gallery of Assembled by Root. There will be a stage provided for a selection of talented artists. A night which shows the diversity within performance art, in an informal setting with a substantive program.

All participating artists will have been working on the development of their performance, as an expansion of their existing work. Artists from whom you wouldn’t expect a performance, or artists who show a whole new direction in their performances. This night shows the result of four masterclasses, given by various professionals to a small selection of artists. These masterclasses provide artistic and practical entrepreneurial tools in the unique work field of performance art.

Are you an artist and is performance art a new development or reinforcement of your artistic practice? Do you live in the region of Rotterdam/The Hague? Have you graduated in 2008 or after from an art-related study? Are you ambitious and available during the workshop dates, and interested in a process-oriented course of several weeks? Send an email to with the following information: A short biography and motivation letter with a proposal containing what you would like to develop during the masterclasses (max 1 A4); link to your website; and 5 – 8 images/videos (photos max 1 MB, videos max 1 min). Workshops will be in Dutch.
