The two leading alternative venues in Holland will be curating a venue at this year’s Incubate. WORM from Rotterdam and OCCII from Amsterdam will host the week program at the Paradox venue together. Combining the strenghts of their network and the multi disciplinary focus of their organization, these venues and their respective artistic leaders will put together a piece of their history and contemporary views, both artistically and socially.

Worm from Rotterdam and OCCII from Amsterdam, two cool underground venues from The Netherlands, will curate Paradox during Incubate 2010 for a whole week.

Worm is the incubator for DIY-culture in Rotterdam. Worm organizes concerts, movies, workshops, master classes, festivals and different events. Next to that they have a movie working place, a sound studio, a shop and a very fast digital platform (WORM. station). They stimulate and help different productions like Dutch programs about national and international festivals and media publications.

The OCCII (Onafhankelijk Cultureel Centrum In It) is a venue for independent performances in Amsterdam. Their aim is to provide a stage and hospitality for non-commercially touring bands and to select the freshest sounds of the DIY underground. The organization is mostly run by volunteers and has its roots in the squatting movement. Next to the concert hall, there’s a vegan restaurant (called MKZ), the Anarchist library, theatre for children (Kinderpret), a bike workshop (Farafina), a sauna (Fenomeen), rehearsal studios and Art work spaces plus a big courtyard with a garden.

A two to three hour live radio play curated by the WORM soundstudio honchos with post, sub and pre- RadioWORM elements. Blurring the lines between fiction and reality, this showcase is a sparkly mixture of (un)intelligible, intrinsic radio blabber, profound statements and badly translated sayings from Dutch to English. This event is also part of ‘Geluidskunst in ‘t Groene Woud’. See with your own eyes how cool radio is made.
