BODY DROP

Body DROP

The material and political gestures of DJ’ing and dancing.

The drop is a sense perception. When it happens, we understand the space we are in. We feel our weight and gravity, this makes us consistent. We feel the resonance and reverberation of what has been playing so far. This makes us powerful. All preceding moments are captured in one instant, and in this instant we can run into the future. Without prediction. Without fear. We reorient and re-organise for new rhythms to come.

For the second year, ICK Amsterdam joins forces with ADE to create a program where
choreographers and DJ’s come together to explore the intersection of their practices. This year’s theme is inspired by the moment the beat kicks in - the Drop.
The Drop is felt on the dance floor as a moment of ecstatic unification, yet this (seemingly singular) event emerges from a longer labour of rhythmic play and resonances across different tracks. The same could be said for every social, personal and political transition. In the microcosmos of the club - where rhythms and bodies are in constant negotiation - the Drop signifies the potential to re-tune ourselves towards unpredictable futures, individually and as a group.

Body DROP presents a range of performances, talks and DJ sets exploring these themes. We affirm our desire to party together, as well as to think critically about with whom and how we do so. If we consider dancing and DJing as inherently political gestures, what might we learn about difference, transformation, and the practice of building temporary communities?

Body DROP aims towards an inclusive and intersectional space, and to promote a queer and feminist counter-presence to the patriarchal habits of mainstream club culture. It is open to all.

Body DROP is curated by Elisa Zuppini and Noha Ramadan
Produced by ICK dans Amsterdam

There's clubs and there's VLLA. At clubs, you dance. At VLLA, you cut loose. An abandoned funeral home has been renovated into the creative space it is today, now uplifting people’s spirit. Some of Amsterdam’s finest party organisers put on the craziest and ‘gezelligst’ of nights out there. Over the years many Amsterdam based dj’s have spun there, as well as international headliners like the Godfather of House, Todd Terry. VLLA's private backyard is the perfect hangout to catch up with your friends, and if you're lucky, you might enjoy street artists spraypainting a new piece on the wall. It’s well worth the detour, you’ll feel right at home there. A place like VLLA is hard to find, and easy to love!
