Come join fellow alumni for an adventurous evening of on-location Holland Festival theater in Amsterdam, followed by drinks and networking.

In the FOZ-building on the Amsterdam Zuidas the British theater troup DreamThinkSpeak has created a dreamlike world of change where the forces of old and new clash. Directed by Tristan Sharps, Before I Sleep is an hour-long performance installation inspired by the tragicomic play The Cherry Orchard by Anton Tsjechov.

Before I Sleep is a continuous performance. Actors lead small groups through the transformed building every few minutes. We have reserved a group departure for the Ivy Circle. The Holland Festival has organized drinks for us starting 7:30 at nearby café Mech. The performance begins at 8:00 and will last one hour. After the performance, we’ll decompress back at Mech with drinks and networking along with Ingrid Janssen, director of external relations for the Holland Festival.

To reserve a place, please email Rick Amado r.l.amado@gmail.com.
