The 14th edition of Spoffin festival is coming to the streets of Amersfoort with an intense and diverse programme of 120+ 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.
This year Italian outdoor art is in the focus of the festival. In partnership with the Federazione Nazionale Arti in Strada (FNAS) and performing art alliance InterSpazi, Spoffin will present new Italian outdoor art by Circo in Rotta and Profundo Rosso (world premiere!), as well as already acknowledged names, such as Teatro Necessario and Luigi Ciotta.
Spoffin IN, the main programme of the festival, will introduce Go Figure by Sharon Fridman (IL), [ THE FRAME ] by Eléctrico28 (ES), (M)other by Raimonda Gudavičiūtė (LT), Rizoma by Rita Martins (PT), Look Mum, No Hands! by Mimbre (UK) and many more.
Spoffin OFF will showcase the top 10 productions by young emerging artists selected from 150 submissions from all over the world, including several brand new productions from Dutch outdoor companies like Collectief Dansblok, Company TiNaNiNaNi, Man in Pak Producties and De Vliegende Koffer.
During the festival days Spoffin PRO will provide a beautiful and cozy space of @Filalethes for networking and peer meetings. Your voice and presence is of the utmost importance in our round table sessions and the Spoffin PITCH, where artists will present new projects and ideas. We invite you to join Spoffin PRO and to enjoy freshly cooked lunches, dinners, and a final farewell party.
Save the dates! 25 - 27 of August 2023 for an exciting journey through the streets and art in Amersfoort. Registration is open NOW!
