The Summer Course Amsterdam was created in 2009 as a platform for artists to gather, research, and create multidisciplinary compositions.

The artists who have participated in the Summer Course come from various backgrounds in music, dance, performance art, acting, and other related educations. We accept participants of all ages, nationalities, and orientations who have a curiosity for multidisciplinary collaboration.

Improvisation, in the summer course, is not considered to be the antithesis of composition. It is how the work is played, and how the multidisciplinary practices merge in a rehearsal setting and performance.

Our objective is to dive deep together into an understanding of the craft of real-time multidisciplinary performance. Therefore, the work that evolves out of the Course Program is placed before a live public on the Friday and Saturday evenings.
