WORM is delighted to once again host Conflux! Conflux is a new festival exploring multisensory encounters, urgent ideas, contemporary art and experimental music.
Conflux Festival closing event @ WORM (Central Station)
Conflux Festival explores the broad and murky boundaries between humans and their machines over a four day program of innovative sound performances, live audiovisual presentations and experimental cinema showcases by a cross-section of internationally renowned artists, happening across a diverse range of environments throughout the city of Rotterdam.
Beginning on Thursday with a free opening concert at V11 and public sound art intervention at Plein 1940, participate in a special preview of Drew McDowall’s forthcoming album performed on elements of the Kinetic Sounds multichannel sound installation. On Friday, the concrete cathedral Brutus hosts an expanded cinema showcase of audiovisual works going beyond the traditional frame of a screen. On Saturday, visual artists and musicians present a series of immersive screen-based performances at the Arminius church, concluding on Sunday with an evening of experimental theatre and sound performances at WORM.
