What we're about

The Amsterdam Culture Group is about getting together and exploring the city's cultural life. This group is for people who want to take advantage of what the city has to offer and meet like-minded people in the process. We visit art collections, concerts, films, theatre, cabaret, and undertake a wide array of other cultural activities. Although there might be occasional exceptions, the primary language is usually English.

JuliDans: Us Swerve

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

Alex Baczynski-Jenkins’s Us Swerve (2014) is a choreographic score for performers on rollerblades who orbit one another while reciting, remixing and reformulating fragmented lines of poetry that meditate desire. Performed in public spaces within the Stedelijk Musesum Amsterdam, this contingent, polyphonic script circulates among the performers and is perpetually altered by their movements, attitudes and affects. The presentation of Baczynski-Jenkins’s Us Swerve is part of an ongoing collaboration between Julidans and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Free event for museum card holders, others pay Stedelijk museum entrance fee.

Concert in the greenhouse – James Oesi

Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam

This summer, the botanical garden of Amsterdam is presenting a new series of concerts in the Palm greenhouse. Our lay down & listen concerts give you the unique opportunity to listen to classical music underneath the palm trees. Don’t forget to bring your yoga mat, your favorite cushion or ottoman and find a nice place in the greenhouse for your personal concert. Double bass player James Oesi (1988) grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, and is a rising start in the classical and modern music scene. He came to the Netherlands in 2009. As one of the few, he focuses on bass as a solo instrument. Oesi is praised for his honest play and his masterful perfection. You will feel the power of the double bass to the depths of your soul. There is no regular seating for the concerts, the public can select a spot to settle down on for the concert. We advise you to take your own mat or pillow with you. There are benches and some chairs.

Grachtenfestival: CLOD-open air concert

Westermarkt

CLOD! makes music to fix its teenage years' broken dreams. It's a sweet-and-sour mashup of nostalgic melodies and improvisation spread on danceable beats. CLOD! was born from the desire of jazz bassist and composer Alessandro Fongaro to experiment with sound and the songwriting approach of indie-rock. This is a free event.
