Octagon Blues (live)

19:00 - 20:00

Rotterdam-based cross disciplinary art collective ‘Octagon Blues’, is the creative output of a group of interdisciplinary artists. Jeroen Janssen, Rodrigo Ribeiro and Samuel van der Veer met in 2017 during their Bachelor of Dance at Codarts University of the Arts. There, they frequently collaborated on creating and performing contemporary dance, but it wasn’t until 2019 that they found out about their shared ambitions of becoming interdisciplinary artists.

Not long after, the decision to form a collective was made, and since then they’ve been working and curating in the fields of dance, electronic music, graphic art and filmmaking. In May 2021, Octagon Blues released their single ‘Pink Moon’, driven by the Super Pink Moon that rose one month earlier on a cloudy night in April. With two releases under their belt and several individual works displayed, OB continues to push their musical ideas forward as well as to explore their inherent relation towards dance.
