The Culture Connect x It’s On x NSRT

The Culture Connect is een evenement waar dans, live muziek, culturele verhalen en spoken word/storytelling samenkomen. Dit keer hebben we de handen ineengeslagen met It’s On! om een extra speciale finale editie neer te zetten!

In deze finale editie zien we 8 dansers van verschillende achtergronden die in de eerste ronde een showcase geven waarin ze hun eigen culturele dans laten zien. Suriname,  Spanje, Indonesië, Turkije, Iran, India, China en Chili komen deze avond op het toneel. 

In de tweede ronde ontmoeten de dansers een voor hun nog onbekende cultuur en worden ze gevraagd om dit te vermengen met hun eigen danstaal door de live ritmes van de nieuwe cultuur en de basis van de dansvorm daarvan te adopteren in de eigen repertoire. Denk aan een Afrikaanse danser die Kathak bewegingen moet vermengen terwijl hij/zij danst op de live Indiase tabla!

In de derde ronde komen alle dansers samen in een West-Afrikaanse sabar cirkel waarin 6 djembe spelers de opzwepende ritmes spelen en de dansers voor het eerst niet op de muziek dansen, maar de muzikanten de dansers volgen! De sabar geeft de dansers de unieke mogelijkheid om een eigen muzikale wereld te scheppen door de muziek te sturen met het lichaam

Dit alles wordt begeleid door DJ Lucas Benjamin, en bejureerd door een panel die op de dag zelf ook geweldige showcases zal geven van de eigen culturele dansstijl op live muziek:

Indu Pandey – Indiase klassieke dans

Johnny Rama Hernandez – Salsa

Recab Mwesigye – Traditioneel Oegandese dans

Julianna Casabillis – Tribal Fusion

De avond is een dansconcours waarbij de dansers maarliefst €1000,- kunnen winnen, dus de winst is hoog, en de dansers komen allemaal goed voorbereid om te knallen.

Jiv the Chief zal de host van deze avond zijn.

Het belooft een avond te worden waar genieten het sleutelwoord is!

De avond wordt mogelijk gemaakt door North Sea Round Town, Gemeente Rotterdam, House of Urban Arts en stichting Connecting the Culture!

19B Studio bus on Tour

Twenty-two years ago, Yannick Monteiro Cabral, aka Monta, came from Cape Verde to live in the Charlois-district in Rotterdam and he never left. Producer, programmer, maker, but above all hip-hopper…and all of this with full dedication. At home and on the street, Monta is always looking for musical growth but also the talent of others. He moves between young emerging and established rappers and makers. He knows that there is a lot of talent in the neighborhood, and he especially wants young people to use their talents. That is why he also guides young people by teaching them how to record and produce songs and thus develop their talent. Monta can be seen as the ambassador; the face behind Studio ’19B’ on tour.


This project can only be made possible with his team: Team ’19B’. The team consists of Monta, Vlammetje (Delano) Overeem and Devero Francisca. The team is involved in various activities such as a music studio in Charlois where many are busy writing, recording, and producing hip-hop on a daily basis.

This project arose because Monta made one of his dreams known in conversation with Pauline Schreurs (Coordinator Cultural Program Pavilion ‘aan het Water’). The reason for this was that he identified a lot of talent in Rotterdam that was not given visibility. His question was what to do with this talent. The Pavilion ‘aan het Water’ likes to give space to these kinds of ideas and experiments. The limitations of Covid-19 made it possible to develop the Quarantine studio on tour in 2020.

B. Studio ’19B’ on tour 2021
This project stimulates and activates young people to do something with their talent, experiences and energy in a positive way. Monta and his team live in Charlois and see what happens on the street. This project involves different types of young people and can affect those who often don’t know what to do when bored.

Tentoonstelling Dimitri Madimin: By All Means Necessary

Dimitri Madimin responds to the image of hip-hop culture with a remarkable new project. Rap music, in particular, is regularly identified as an instigator of violence. An installation featuring tracksuits and historical scenes of violence questions this stigma. A relationship between art and violence undoubtedly exists, but it is certainly not exclusive to hip-hop culture. Indeed, the European art canon is brimming with violence: beheadings, assault, torture, and power struggles. Of course, such classical expressions are regarded as sublimated violence: visual culture as a symbolic display of power, and sublime aesthetic experience.

Why are such portrayals in hip-hop culture – today’s mainstream art form – never viewed in the same way? Madimin subverts this stereotype by making tracksuits from fabric printed with violent scenes taken from Italian Renaissance paintings. In establishing this connection, with the tracksuit as the ultimate rapper outfit, he emphasizes hip-hop’s significant cultural importance as the New Black Renaissance.
