ADE completes program with Official Opening Event at Rijksmuseum
Wednesday, 04 October 2023
With the 2023 program now complete, ADE unveils a special collaboration with Rijksmuseum and DJ/producer upsammy as the Official Opening Event. The result is "Breathe, Walk, Die" — a unique performance where art and music blend seamlessly together, hosted at the iconic bicycle passage under the museum, made possible by the collaboration between the two cultural institutions.
Breathe, Walk, Die will take place on Wednesday, October 18 at 7:30 PM and attendance is free. The full performance will also be streamed live on ADE's channels.
ADE and Rijksmuseum are entering into this collaboration to show lovers of classical art and electronic music that the two disciplines actually, truly reinforce each other. "Breathe, Walk, Die" is a theatrical performance consisting of three acts that bring the exhibition Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen at Rijksmuseum to life.
The show is based on the musical tour composed by DJ and producer upsammy for the exhibition under the direction of producer Tom Trago, in which life - from birth to death - is musically reflected through themes such as fear, desire, and ambition. Accompanied by live sounds by percussionist Valentina Magaletti and a visual interpretation by designer Theun Mosk.
The collaboration between ADE and the Rijksmuseum represents an important step for both institutions in merging various art disciplines to create unique, connecting experiences — showcasing electronic music's positive impact to cultural heritage to an even wider audience.
