Aceleratio// The art of slowing down

in times of a pandemic.

Have you asked yourself how the crisis has changed your dialogue with others? 

Aceleratio aims at providing an artist's perspective. Get your Peeks to the Live Streams!


An interdisciplinary blended performance installation,

where video, live streams and performances come together

at a meeting place with a unique architecture and energy:

Ndsm Fuse.

Aceleratio aims to confront on- and offline audience with struggle, freedom, courage and comfort. Inspired by the effects of the crisis; a slower body, acceleration of thoughts, feelings that seem more extreme, 10 experienced Amsterdam-based performers live and +/- 16 international performers embody this time by engaging in a physical/ mental process to understand at a deeper level how feelings and thoughts manifest in their bodies during COVID-19 reflecting on the pandemic.


Sneak Peek Streams of Aceleratio live from Plein Theatre, Amsterdam on 14th ,15th, 16th of January and 25th, 26th, 27th of February 2021.

Sneak Peeks

Each performer seeks for connection in his own poetic space. Sometimes literally entwined between ropes and cables. Sometimes only the digital space remains as the meeting place with the other and the other transforms into a projection to whom you are talking. No contradiction, no comfort, no answers, but no questions either.

On their attempt to the connect, each evening two performers meet and enter into a musical and physical dialogue about the situation they have found themselves

in a crisis: a slower body, acceleration in thoughts, feelings that seem more extreme. They have the need to embody

thismoment of their lives.

In a series of six live streams from Plein Theater in Amsterdam the viewer can peek “under our skin”. Poetic, intimate, fragile, 

powerful images of individual performers alternately 

confronting, moving and enlightening. 

An "unspoken” word towards the viewer at home.

The sneak peek streams last +/- 20 minutes.
