Performance Bar

We all know our memorable nights at the bar, but this act guarantees you such an impressive experience that you’ll leave this bar in pure extacy!

In collaboration with the avant-gardistic and underground venue WORM in Rotterdam, we bring The Performance Bar to Welcome to The Village: A transformable stage/bar that blurs the boundaries between café and theatre, bar and stage, artist and audience. The Performance Bar presents all kinds of acts that span across the categories of art and entertainment. A seemingly normal evening out suddenly becomes an adventure when performers jump on the bar and present everything from the lowbrow to the profound, never taking longer than it takes you to drink your pint of beer. Get ready for an unforgettable experience which will have you on the edge of your bar-stool!

With The Performance Bar they realise a longstanding dream to create an exciting place for performance art in Rotterdam.
