RÆV REHEARSAL x club chUrch's Blue night


by Tools for Action + Floor van Leeuwen

Start Location: close to NDSM (exact location sent privately to signed up people)

In the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, nightclubs were closed, and the right to demonstrate was restricted. Within this context, RÆV REHEARSAL emerged as a response to the collective isolation posed by the pandemic. With a Bluetooth speakers system, floating inflatable sculptures and a minimalist techno beat, ravers move through the city like a radiating, dancing swarm. Then, the streets become the club; the stairs, roundabouts and benches, temporary stages.

DJ Prudence (She/Her)
For over 10 years Prudence has been filling queer dance floors with a diverse selection of techy beats, house vocals and the creation of ‘pearl clutch’ moments. Hailing from queer clubs of Sydney, Melbourne and Jersey, you'll now find her at Amsterdam's Club Church supporting club night ‘blue’ and the drag-king House of Løst Bois.
