One year after the pilot of the Hamburger Community of Art, Roodkapje started the Hamburger Community of Live. Based on the same principles of collective learning, and organising events in a dynamic and multidisciplinary environment, the Hamburger Community of Live offers a place for young and inspiring event programmers to further endeavour, experiment and learn to organise innovative live events. In 2022, the Hamburger Community of Live offers space for three programmers that together will shape a series of live events throughout the year, stimulating them to break down disciplinary segregation and to mix communities, audience groups. The residency period at the Hamburger Community of Live functions as a laboratory; a test site that offers residents the opportunity to experiment with public events through organising get-togethers, workshops, and other discursive events, but also through multidisciplinary events such as concerts, club nights, performances, festivals and dinners.
Residents of the Hamburger Community of Live organise both individual and collaborative events with their fellow residents programmers, but also work closely with the artist-residents of the Art community, amounting into a wide range of events in which residents can inspire each other to look beyond familiar territories. Hamburger Community of Live are provided with their own communal office/workspace in Roodkapje, three mentorships by experienced organisers, programmers or bookers throughout the year, and a stipend in the form of a monthly fee. The mentorships for the 2022 year are divided among Dennis Muñoz Espadiña/Hogus Bogus Publishing, Frederic van de Velde/Futura Resistenza and Sickhouse (Overkill Festival Exchange) (these plans can be subject to change), are diverse in learning curve and focus, and will help residents develop various new skills as well as their ability to organise and produce innovative and inspiring live events. Together with the Head of Live, the residents will command a working budget to organise events with, and Roodkapje will invite various experts from the cultural industry for specific guidance sessions throughout the year.
Futura Resistenza is a label and platform from Brussels and Rotterdam, that operates somewhere on the border between performance, music and visual arts. Roodkapje asked the label to program a series of concerts in our venue. Throughout this year Futura Resistenza invites musicians and artists who already have a connection with the label, as well as people who they simply admire and want to see perform. Some confirmed names include: Matchess (Circuit des Yeux), Frank Hurricane, Pierre Bastien, Ben Bertrand and Efraín Rozas.
