greenaway in amsterdam

this is the cafe above the stedelijk museum

On Friday June 17 Peter Greenaway performed his first VJ act. And how! Utilizing a giant touchscreen control system he rocked the crowd in Amsterdam's VJ temple "11", blending his avantgarde cinematographic imagery (taken from the Tulse Luper Suitcases movie) with the heavy movie score remix by DJ Radar. With his outstanding cinematographic eye and energetic approach the "real time image conductor" Greenaway, assisted by VJs E202 and Robotfunk, has hereby set the pace in the toplevel international VJ scene.

Peter Greenaway is VJ on June 17 at the new NoTV CLUB EVENING in cooperation with Postivisme: CNCDNC in 11, Amsterdam.

On June 17 Peter Greenaway, director of film classics like The Pillow Book, The Cook The Thief His Wife And Her Lover, Prospero’s books and The Tulse Luper Suitcases, will demonstrate in Club 11 his first VJ performance. Herewith Greenaway sets the standard for a new club evening in Amsterdam: CNCDNC, an evening focussing on media-art and visual culture.
On music by DJ’s Richard Parker and Serge aka Radar, ‘VJ’ Greenaway will use for his set a special VJ system consisting of two large plasma screens with touchscreens, which has been developed for CNCDNC by our friends of Beamsystems. Utilizing this system, Greenaway can project his ‘story’ on the 12 screens of Club 11 in a multi-screen way and mix it 'live'.
