About Oorsprong Curators Series

The ’OORSPRONG curators series/ OCS’

since 2009

Is a monthly experimental and challenging curators programming platform producing 10 small scale 3 sets improvising evenings pro season. OCS is initiated by improvisers for improvisers. 

OCS provides a mentality meeting space for audience and participants interested in and actively reflecting on improvised disciplines at work in the broadest sense. 

Each month 3 different curators form dance, live electronics and acoustic music background are invited to cast and present each a mixed ‘blinddate+instant composing’ line up.Lineups starting from trio format to larger formats. 

OCS’s curator’s programmimg model promotes a high degree zero approach: no solo, duo or  regular groups, no pre-set rehearsals, no projects, no comfort zone. OCS lineups are by definition experimental socially (blinddate selected lineups) and artistically (using the instant composing method).

The OCS  is initiated/coordinated since 2009 by bassist and crackle boxist Raoul van der Weide and generously supported by  Palntagedok/Jochem van Tol, STEIM/ , George Hadow/assistance, Lali/assistance,  Oscar Jan Hoogland (piano) , Stephane Kaas (digi flyer), Guillaume Heurtebize  (website).and BIMhuis/Huub van Riel.
