Museums, cinemas and theatres open again!

Your weekly dose of art and culture in collaboration with Uitagenda Rotterdam

From the moment that events were no longer allowed to take place, cultural institutions in Rotterdam have dealt with the situation creatively. With online programming, we can now fully experience art and culture from home, but it’s time to start venturing out again too. Here are your weekly tips for enjoying art and culture, at home and on the go, in collaboration with Uitagenda Rotterdam.

Sinfonia Rotterdam & Ronald Brautigam live from the Laurenskerk Rotterdam

Sinfonia Rotterdam will perform the first live symphonic concert in the Netherlands on Friday 5 June! As the measures slowly ease, Sinfonia Rotterdam and Mozart specialist Ronald Brautigam will come together on 5 June 2020, for the classic genre at its best! Under the direction of Conrad van Alphen, Haydn’s Symphony ‘La Passione’ and Mozart’s ‘Jeunehomme’ piano concerto will be streamed live in HD from the beautiful, historic Laurenskerk Rotterdam. Follow the concert live here.

 Classics at a distance of one and a half metres by Theatre Group Mangrove

Theatergroep Mangrove will perform for a limited audience in its home city of Rotterdam this summer, at a distance of one and a half metres. The Mangrove artistic team will choose several well-known classics, from Greek Tragedies and masterpieces by Shakespeare, and invite its permanent actors to take the stage. No big sets, because there is little space. No fancy costumes, because there is little money. Only the actors, the story and the irrepressible urge to perform for an audience again, and bring them something they’ve been missing: live theatre.

 Buy art at Roodkapje’s Cultural Supermarket

The concept at Roodkapje is a nod to grocery shopping today. You follow a route through the art shop with your shopping basket, and you can shop for art and culture at a safe distance. The cultural supermarket stocks products made by Rotterdam artists, designers, musicians and other creatives. Unlike a

A peek at the gardens of Rotterdammers

The Verborgen Tuinen Festival (Hidden Gardens) cannot take place in its original form this weekend. Fortunately, the organisation has come up with an online alternative so you can still get a unique look at the gardens of various Rotterdammers. Several garden owners have made a video of their beautiful garden, and these videos will be shared on the event’s Facebook and Instagram pages in the coming days.

 Play games at home with the ‘IK VERKOOP ROTOWN UIT’ board game

Rotown, the pop stage on the Nieuwe Binnenweg, has come up with a board game. To help you fill your time with as much fun as possible, they created a game where the main goal is to sell out Rotown as a headliner. You start in the rehearsal room and then pass through 100 squares to a sold-out show in Rotown. The board game costs only € 7.50. Besides buying something fun, your purchase also supports Rotown and ticket partner Stager.

Theatres, museums and cinemas open again: the complete overview

With the relaxation of the measures, culture visits are slowly becoming possible again. In the Uitagenda overview, you can read what is going on and find more information about the specific corona measures that have been taken to ensure that we can visit theatres, museums and cinemas safely. How about the new exhibition about stories that circulated in Rotterdam during the war at Museum Rotterdam?
