Spoffin PRO - 23-25 August, 2024

Big Wolf Company (EE) is one of the highlights of the Baltic focus programme in Spoffin 2024.

The 15th edition of Spoffin festival is coming to the streets of Amersfoort with an intense and diverse programme of 110+ performances represented by artists from more than 10 countries of the world. We invite outdoor art professionals to appreciate the beauty and power of art in public space, discover new emerging talents, projects and ideas, meet colleagues and friends, and be warmly received by the festival team. The full festival programme is available now via our website.

Focus: Baltic countries
This year outdoor art from the Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia) is in the focus of the festival. In partnership with Rigas Circus (Latvia), Spoffin will present new pieces by Accompany ME (LT/IT), Art for Rainy Days (LV/UK) and Kanta Company (LT/FI/US), as well as existing work from Big Wolf Company (EE), Jūratė Širvytė-Rukštelė & Adrian Schvarzstein (LT/ES) and again Kanta Company.

Residencies: support for creation
Every year, Spoffin offers a few outdoor artists a residency in order to support their creation process. For this we cooperate with the Eemhuis and Circus Amersfoort. Eemhuis will host two dance companies: DansBlok (NL), winner of the VKZ Spoffin OFF Award 2023, and Wonderground Company (ES/IL), winner in 2022. Circus Amersfoort will host Accompany ME (LT/IT) and Kanta Company (LT/FI). Furthermore Art for Rainy Days (LV/LT/UK) will do an outdoor residency. All companies will have either a premiere or show a work-in-progress during the festival days.
