in collaboration with Dance Shorts
and Volle Maan Nachtschade

Decamarone is a three day festival with ten short performances each day, combining music, dance, new-circus, poetry, theater and installation art, all presented within a symbolic contemporary catastrophe scenario: the bird flu.

When the bird flu pandemic hits worldwide and the global economy is destroyed, ten artists flee the chaotic streets of Amsterdam, locking themselves into the old Filmacademie on the Overtoom which they call the Oekolos.

Every night, they entertain each other with ten short performances telling stories of love and success and of the evils of the age. But one thing is never mentioned: the intense outside reality of disease, riots, starvation and the bird flu that will probably kill them all.

They don't strive for a manifesto or a political message. They speak plainly of their world... one that may be gone forever.
