Within Without II

In Within Without II, artist Nick Verstand examines our subconscious by light art, music and modern dance. The performance symbolizes the transformation of the self through different stadia. Let yourself be transported into a dream world of light and darkness, sound and space.


“People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ― Carl Gustav Jung


Verstand joins forces with Sedrig Verwoert (choreographer & dancer), Wanderwelle (music), Wes Broersen (interaction designer), Marijn Cinjee (music & sound design), Jasmine Karimova and Pitou (vocals). Together with Reina Trifunović, Alanna Archibald, Comfort Kondehson, Winter Wieringa and Adam Russel-Jones, Verwoert will provide the performance with dance - a three dimensional pas de deux included.

On the 19th of October, the new performance Within Without II is to be seen exclusively in Carré as the opening event of ADE, as part of the Arts & Culture program. The first edition of the audiovisual liveshow in 2021 was visited by thousands of people.

Festival FAQ

Yes, all official ADE Festival events listed on the ADE website are accessible with your ADE Pro Pass (limited capacity at venues). When capacity has been reached, a one in one out rule applies.

A very limited number of events, including the Nils Frahm seated concert at Concertgebouw and the Eric Prydz HOLO show have had an RSVP list for Pro Pass holders. Only the RSVP grants entry to the shows.

For (individual) festival tickets make sure to check out our program and simply add tickets to your basket as you explore all events.

Tip: Filter the program by "Show only events with available tickets" to get a quick view.

Most festival events have an age limit of 18+ (and sometimes even 21+ or 23+), these are Dutch governmental rules which say that below the age of 18 you are not allowed to enter a club. Please double-check the promotors website to be sure you can enter the event.

We dance together, so please be mindful of yourself and each other. We expect an open attitude from our visitors towards other guests, regardless of their origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion and age. If you see or experience any unwanted attention, harassment or behavior of any kind that makes you uncomfortable, please speak out and notify staff.

Please keep in mind: we love being your annual host, therefore, we would like to ask you to enjoy responsibly.
