If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution produces art works and thematic programmes. Departing from a spirit of open questioning and long term enquiry with artists, If I Can’t Dance is dedicated to exploring the evolution and typology of performance and performativity in contemporary art.
Founded in 2005, If I Can’t Dance borrows the model of collaborative working from the theatre by investing in an elaborated programme that develops through its very enactment, at each event and location over time. This is manifest in long-term collaborations with artists, researchers and partner organizations, that take form in two-year editions of commissioned productions and research projects that are grouped around a field of research, and which are presented across numerous moments and within different institutions in the Netherlands and abroad.
If I Can’t Dance’s artistic programme is curated by Frédérique Bergholtz and Susan Gibb.
