Rewire completes 2021 line-up with radio programme and Rian Treanor-led workshop

The Dutch festival has announced the final wave of projects and partnerships lined up for next month’s event.

Rewire has unveiled the final additions to its 2021 programme. With a focus on new formats, the latest line-up announcement features a radio programme with over 35 sound and radio works which will be presented audibly over four days, offering an alternative way to experience the festival. As part of its radio programming, Rewire has teamed with Glasgow-based art radio station Radiophrenia as well as Gonzo (circus) for audio projects. Rewire is also collaborating with online editorial platform AQNB on a special podcast that explores the theme of this year’s festival: (Re)setting.

Elsewhere, the Dutch festival will present an online reimagining of the Music for a Busy City project, which was originally meant to take place physically at the Hague for Rewire 2020. Meanwhile, the festival will also screen four short films in collaboration with Norient Film Festival, while percussion ensemble Slagwerk Den Haag will present short performances as part of their Loading Dock Sessions series.

Planet Mu mainstay Rian Treanor also features in the latest line-up announcement. Treanor is collaborating with Rewire on a workshop titled Inter-symmetric 7, through which he utilises bespoke music software to enable real time remote collaboration. For those eager to take part, there will be an open call for one of the sessions to develop a new collaborative performance. You can apply for Treanor’s workshop in advance here.

Rewire takes place on 6-9 May 2021. Head to the festival’s website for more information and full line-up details.
