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 meeting space for audience and participants interested in actively reflecting on, witnessing and or practicing specific improvised disciplines in the broadest sense.
Each month 3 different curators are invited to cast and present an 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 implies 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/Het POORTGEBOUW/ Tolhuistuin , STEIM/Nico Bes and Jonatnah Reus, , George Hadow/assistance, Oscar Jan Hoogland (piano) , Stephane Kaas (digi flyer), Guillaume Heurtebize (website) and Melle Hammer (graphics).
