Amy Congdon

New Human
As a designer Amy is interested in exploring the crossovers between design and science, through a highly experimental and research driven practice. Using speculative design work she investigates the implications of engaging with new technologies, such as biotechnology.


Axel Lieber uses everyday items as objects of reference and alienates their materiality by coring them semantically and then filling thus evolving empty spaces with new content. In this way, new synthetic-aesthetic crossovers and oppositions arise that enliven the sculptures and guide the viewer into an intimate sphere at the same time.

Sasha Waltz


The renowned choreographer Sasha Waltz has been very successfully involved in crossovers between opera and ballet in recent years. She will come to the Dutch National Opera for the first time with her own company to direct Claudio Monteverdi’s Orfeo.
