The graduating year of SNDO presents their final works in June 2023 across two venues – Tempel, Amsterdam and Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond, Amsterdam. The 4th year students of the SNDO – School for New Dance Development graduate by creating two works next to writing a thesis and completing their internship. Public programs take place in venues outside the school providing the students with professional working conditions and the artistic context. In July the graduation works travel to Genk, Belgium.
Parallel to the student’s individual creation processes runs a collaboration with the Graphic Design department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. This initiative originated in 2017, through dialogue with SNDO partner institute If I Can’t Dance. Students of both educations receive an applied design assignment to work together in developing visibility material for the graduation show.
This year’s SNDO graduates are Rene Bizimana, alex blum Bertelsen, Mingjou Chen, Asya Deinekina, Juli frodermann, Corina Mitrovici, Adam Jönsson and Rūta Junevičiūtė. The Gerrit Rietveld Graphic Design graduate is Skye McKinney.
The program is made possible in collaboration with our venue partner Tempel, Amsterdam, which is hosting this year’s performances alongside Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond, Amsterdam and C-mine, Genk in collaboration with Jester institution for contemporary art, Belgium.
