ADE Opening Event: Breathe, Walk, Die

ADE Opening Event: Breathe, Walk, Die

Breathe, Walk, Die: a performance organised by ADE and Rijksmuseum where art and music converge.

During the official ADE Opening Event, the exhibition Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will come to life in a theatrical performance of 3 acts. The performance Breathe, Walk, Die is based on the music tour that DJ/producer upsammy composed for the exhibition.

For the event, upsammy developed the themes of Breathe, Walk, Die into three unique musical acts for the theatrical performance - supported by live percussion of Valentina Magaletti and a visual interpretation of the performance by designer Theun Mosk.

ADE and Rijksmuseum are entering into this collaboration to show lovers of classical art and electronic music that the two disciplines truly reinforce each other.
