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.


You will be warmly welcomed and guided through a maze of different realities. Finding intimate, fragile, poetic spaces alternately seeking confrontation, comfort, movement and enlightenment during these pandemic times. 

You will experience an  "unseen” act of presence, emerging different perspectives and possibilities of this transitional "spacetime". 

Aceleratio is about the times we are in. Through many changes and uncertainties we literally are encountering a realm where acceleration and slowing down co-exist at the same time. Being touched by the true nature of humanity, We as an artistic team feel the urge to share this transitional moment with our witnesses - you, our audience.


Acelerating and Slowing Down is relevant in our artistic practice. Rather complementary than a contradiction ...


Performing this blended performance installation in this very moment offers us the opportunity to propagate the necessity of art at all times. Movementalists envision a world, where dance movement is an essential factor for humanity. In this ongoing,
changing world we – the dance artists have a central role as initiator for change and expression of and in between different cultures and beliefs. 

We do so by breaking with proclaimed boundaries, creating sharp edged performances focused on provoking different emotions. We interact and improvise creating moments as they come, going into purity of movement, testing our systems and beliefs.

We are looking forward meeting you in the maze of Aceleratio online


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.
