Studio for rent in Marci Panis (2nd floor)

Studio 2D will be available from the 1st of July 2024 onwards in Broedplaats voor (Podium)Kunsten Marci Panis. 

Marci Panis
Marci Panis is an association for theatre and visual arts. The building consists of 30 studios and rehearsal spaces, a nursery, a guest house for artists, and a restaurant. All members at Marci Panis, artists, theatre makers, writers and designers, are actively committed to the building and the co-tenants. Every member has an active roll within the building, for example, being part of the accountancy or maintenance commission. Please note that you are expected to invest some time in tasks like these, to maintain or improve the association.

Marci Panis is located at the Marcusstraat 52, in Amsterdam.

Studio 2D
The studio is ca. 40 m2 and situated on the second floor, at the backside of the building. There is a kitchen and toilet on the same floor. This studio used to be a bigger studio, which was split into several units later on, therefore the walls are quite thin and not sound proof. Because of this reason, this studio is suited for artists who have a practise that does not involve making a lot of noise. This is an important aspect that will be taken into consideration in the application process. 

Rent: € 255,72 per month (excl. BTW)*
Service costs: € 100,63 per month (excl. BTW)
Total (monthly): € 365,35 (excl. BTW)

+ Inleggeld € 20,- (per person, per month)

Deposit: € 511,44 (excl. BTW)
Key deposit: € 50,- (per set of keys)

*The rent will increase (by about €14,83) with the annual rate of inflation (5.8%) from 1 July 2024. Hence, the two-month deposit will also increase (by about €29,66). The exact numbers still need to be calculated. 

Every month, each tenant pays € 20 ‘input money’. This can be earned back by performing activities for the association, for example by taking a seat on the board or carrying out committee work.

The Premonitions Agency Dream Collecting Station (test version) presented by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms in collaboration with the Premonitions Agency

Have you ever wondered about the untapped potential of your dreams? Welcome to the very first test version of The Premonitions Agency Dream Collecting Station. This experimental government agency initiative aims to collect citizens’ dreams and analyze them to predict possible future scenarios.

The Premonitions Agency Dream Collecting Station seeks to explore the potential of dreams in predicting future scenarios. Your participation is crucial to our research: if you would like to take active part in affecting future scenarios, please bring a dream. We assure you that your data will be handled with the utmost care and confidentiality. Thank you for being part of this groundbreaking experiment.

Harry Potter and the Delicious Brunch (in-progress) by Billy Mullaney

Billy has recently been researching erotic Harry Potter fan fiction as the absolute lowest contemporary literary form.
He is curious about the communities that have sprung up around generating and sharing such texts, the mode of address with which they are written, and what might be “read” beyond the stories themselves. He is particularly interested in the use of fan fiction as personal fantasy fulfillment (using the protagonist as a stand-in for themselves and often having nothing to do with the source material), and how these stories can become indeed more legible as portraits of the author. Harry Potter and the Delicious Brunch is a short in-progress sketch exploring such a spectacle of self-indulgence, and which *might* develop into a performance in the future(!)

Entrance free. Donations welcome.

Nicoline Timmer MOUNTAIN, MOUNTAIN boeklancering 10, 11, 12 maart

Nicoline Timmer – who has a studio in Marci Panis – first presented her opera-in-the-making ‘mountain, mountain’ during her solo-exhibition in 2019/2020 at andriesse~eyck gallery.

Now there’s a book, that will be launced on 10 March at
andriesse ~ eyck galerie
Leliegracht 47
1016 GT Amsterdam

Different stage props, characters and scenic devices, such as draped silken curtains, prophets in the shape of donkey heads, and a set of blue ceramic bowls representing the sound and movement of the ocean, populated the gallery space. Together, they animated a fictional universe that has its very own space-time dimension, logic, and myths.

The idea for this fictional universe took shape while Timmer was staying on a small former military island in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean, and started with a simple line drawing of two mountains which, together with the ocean and the wind, determined the scenery of the sparsely populated island. The true protagonists of ‘mountain, mountain’ are not the human characters, but elements such as ‘moments’, ‘music’, ‘scenography’, ‘dramaturgic structure’.

The same characters and attributes are now brought to life in the space of her new publication ‘mountain, mountain’ (2022), which includes sketches and graphic scores, notes and behind-the-scenes insights, film-stills, portraits of scenic devices, songs, and a small novella. Sea creatures, spies, shipwrecks, and double rainbows play a part, as well as a sticky Ferrari, sudden feelings and gestures, and an old boxing manual. There is “the music”, sometimes swaying, or forced to sit upright on a folding chair, plus three prophets who graciously step onto the set when their presence is needed.

As the artist writes, ‘the main stage measures 256 x 382 mm’, which is the length and width of the book when folded open. ‘It is a very small setting, but large enough for all the elements to present themselves, interact, find form, disappear.’

Kate Cooper bij het Stedelijk

Op 18 maart 2022 is er in het Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam een nieuwe editie van Video Club met een live screening van het werk van de in Liverpool geboren en in Marci Panis wonende & werkende kunstenaar Kate Cooper. ‘In haar videopraktijk onderzoekt Kate Cooper hoe computergegenereerde beelden onze relatie met onszelf en de wereld om ons heen bemoeilijken. In haar oeuvre benadert zij het digitaal weergegeven lichaam als een startpunt voor verkenningen van gender, performativiteit en de specifieke beeldtaal die ze met hyperkapitalisme aanduidt.’ Meer info & tickets:

New Performance by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms

How To Exit a Reality (Attempt 1 of 19) is a new performance by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms (both working at Marci Panis) in collaboration with the moon. A playful journey through different realities, this new performance is based on the Metonic score: a cycle where the Moon returns to exactly the same place in the night sky and against the same backdrop of the stars every 19 years. Especially for the occasion of the premiere at SPRING in Autumn, they have prepared the exact same night sky in Utrecht as it was in 1603, the year the witch-hunt ended in the Netherlands and 2059, the year of the first human settlement on the moon. The waning half-moon is the best time to reverse circumstances. For the performance, Andrea Božić and Julia Willms have collected night-time dreams, memories, scientific models, moon rituals and SciFi fiction, all relating to the moon, spanning from the distant past to the deep-time future. The two performers take the audience on a journey through these different realities merging them with the architectural space of the theatre, so they all take place at the same time here and now.  How To Exit a Reality (Attempt 1 of 19) is a performance based on the escape room principle: we are looking for an exit but every time we find one, we end up in another reality. The two performers apply dream logic and gameplay to the world, approaching it as an existential virtual game – one that we can navigate, change, shift and play, or attempt to exit its logic. Every exit we take brings us to yet another reality – until even the space here and now becomes yet another fluid fiction.
