http://www.freefringefestivalamsterdam.com/

This year's Warp Zone Art Show at De Vondelbunker will include the fantastic "Cello Fortress" by Joost van Donge, a unique game experience combining games and a live music performance at 16:00.

A cellist defends a fortress by improvising on his cello. Melodies control the guns, dissonant notes activate the flamethrowers. Players from the audience use game controllers to steer their tanks and attack the fortress. The cellist plays live music, while at the same time controlling the game to be a fun challenge for the players. Cello Fortress is an innovative experiment that blends concert and game. 
PROGRAM :
Doors open 13:00
with gaming, art, merch and installations all day
Official opening and Music Performance by The Consoldiers 15:00
Cello Fortress 16:00
Free Fringe Music Night from 20:00

Told through a series of fifteen vignettes using a cohesion of modern dance, physicalized movement and spoken word, By the Bi unpacks society's isolation of bisexual culture and examines how this perpetuates harmful and hurtful stereotypes of bisexuality that include confusion, greediness and promiscuity. By the Bi is an open platform to discuss the oppression of the bisexual community as well as celebrate the beauty and individuality of its members. It is not only a show, but a proactive step forward in the movement for social equality.

THE JOURNAL Miniature Object Theatre & Astarotheatro




The Journal is a miniature object theatre performance with a tiny stage of 40 centimeters wide by 30 centimeters deep. Appropriately, this performance will take place at AstaroTheatro, Amsterdam’s Smallest Theatre ! Tjin A Ton and Gosia Kazcmarek carefully manipulate dolls, odds and ends, music, torches and shadows to present the reflections of a lonesome man living in a world where objects are taking over. 








Karl Marx has had enough of seeing his revolution taken over by opportunists organizing each time a new priesthood and a new hierarchy, with excommunications and indexes, with inquisitions and firing squads. He is disgusted by media declaring him dead again and again. Karl Marx is back to remind us that his ideas are more alive than ever. He revisits memories of his courageous life and revolutionary theories. We learn about his family, his struggles and the boils on his arse.
