Voice-over Noord

23 March – 29 March

Voice-over Noord will bring live performances and discussions into a public space and buses in Amsterdam Noord. This program wants to artistically remap and give a voice-over to Amsterdam-Noord. A similar project was done for the first time in Sanandaj, the capital city in the Kurdish part of Iran, initiated by Elham Puriyamehr in 2013. Puriyamehr with an artistic team, including author Özkan Gölpinar and performance artist and filmmaker Ehsan Fardjadniya, will translate this project from Iran to the Dutch situation, making unexpected connections between Amsterdam-Noord and Sanandaj. Topics and questions like: in the search of the voice of “the other”, or how to deal with otherness, are given to the artists as a frame for their performances in public space and the bus. During the public bus tour the artists are invited to engage in a process of re-mapping Amsterdam Noord via the medium of voice-over narration of the city landscape.
