As part of the Shadow Floriade 2022 program The Warp presents

EUREKA! in the Beatrixpark  on the weekend of October 1 and 2, in which audiences are invited to take a nighttime journey through the park to experience a visual art and science performance side show. This carnival of wonders is inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s final work, Eureka!, in which Poe revealed incredible ideas such as an expanding universe, the big bang and black holes which he intuited with the immediacy of a walk in the park… And hence it was decided amongst these artists to engage with what might be considered the first conscious work of art science which placed its primary focus on the ability to Imagine.

This after dark performance installation is enacted by a Collective of ten artists very well known in the burgeoning field of art science:Joost Rekveld, Matthijs Munnik, Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, Vladimir Grafov, Zalan Szakacs, Daniela De Paulis, Mint Park and BMB con: Justin Bennett & Roelf Toxopeus

Audiences will assemble at the Meeting point located at the Park Kiosk BEA, Beatrixpark 1 off Boerenweteringspad at any time between nightfall and late night.

Promenades will commence every fifteen minutes from the meeting

Point during which audiences will be led on tour to experience eight unique works in the darkness of the park. The entire performance is expected to take eighty minutes. The event is offered free of charge.

This project is presented by The Warp in connection with The Shadow Floriade, fiftieth anniversary celebation in the Beatrixpark, in association with Zone2Source in the Amstelpark. Eureka! is produced with the support of:

Gemeente Stadsdeel Zuid, Stimulerings Creative Industries, Amsterdam Fonds voor de kunst, Mondriaan Foundation, and Prins Bernhard Kultuurfonds.
