The ’OORSPRONG curators series/ OCS’
is a monthly experimental and challenging curators programming platform producing 10 small scale 3 sets improvising evenings pro season.
OCS provides a mentality meeting space for audience and participants interested in and actively reflecting on, witnessing improvised disciplines at work in the broadest sense.
Each month 3 different curators are invited to cast and present a mixed and unprecedented line up of improvisers. Lineups starting from trio format to larger formats, focusing notably on dance, live electronics and acoustic music.
OCS’s curator’s programmimg model promotes a high degree zero approach: no solo, duo or regular groups, no pre-set rehearsals, no comfort zone.
The OCS is initiated/coordinated since 2009 by bassist and crackle boxist Raoul van der Weide and generously supported by Titia Daniels, Henk van der Geest/Het POORTGEBOUW/ILo, Tolhuistuin , STEIM/Nico Bes and Tijs Ham, , George Hadow/assistance, Lali/assistance, Oscar Jan Hoogland (piano) , Stephane Kaas (digi flyer), Guillaume Heurtebize (website).
