Rotterdam communities interpret the ritual space of G/D THYSELF in their own way and according to their own needs, as part of a series of spirit strategies that are broadcast every Friday live from the installation. As his contribution to this open stage, on 5 June 2020 theatre maker Martin Snip dedicated a silent performance to Black Lives Matter.

Live from G/D THYSELF

Every Friday from 11am to 12pm, artists explain and perform various spirit strategies in the installation G / D THYSELF, which you can experience at home via a live stream.

Every week, the installation is made available to a community in Rotterdam to use in their own way for their own spirit strategies. Send an email to to reserve a time slot if you would like to participate with your community.

The programme kicked off with a performance and workshop in collaboration with HipHopHuis in Rotterdam. Other performances and workshops feature performers such as Krump dancer The Empress (Aissa Traore), the Rotterdam collective The Sacred Boiling Tub and OTION (Guillermo Blinker) and Giovanni Maisto Ferreira.

The performances and workshops are available via Zoom (with a limited number of places) and as a livestream via Het Nieuwe Instituut Online
