Urban Explorers (UE) is an annual multidisciplinary festival. Limits are exceeded and elaborated on the cutting edge. Dividing lines fade with crossovers of (sound) art, performance, film, music, theater and dance. Urban expeditions, with unexpected acts in unexpected places, form the thread in the programming.

'Chairs Missing' by Bea de Visser (
remarkable translation of the saying into French: Chaises Manquantes) present at the exhibition of Art Souterrain in Montréal, Qc in March.
Here are some text quotes from the audio tour and a separate IPhone Application:
"I swam my 4th kilometer the week that I realized that the pool would be demolished. I heard it by the sound of the fans and the purification systems. This over the years developped complex of connected buildings was the ideal location for the film I wanted to make into a labyrinthine public space. After every corner, behind every door hides the 'other' and the risk of an encounter."
"Bluntly: I want to tell a story without telling a story ... What interests me is how.
My strong inclination to the (dance / drama) performance in the film comes, I think from a background of music / sound performance and painting. I choose especially for the physical approach to performance and image oriented drama. Interesting for me are musicality, rhythm, tone and timbre, sometimes cruel absurdity, perversion and the balance between the banal and the human spiritual identity.
The grid of my work comes from the interrogation of the visual logic in conjunction with a strictly visual poetry. My strategy emphasizes the importance of challenging our preconceptions of what film can and should touch."
'A Breath Hush' by Bea de Visser at Art Rotterdam Projections. Programme with Erwin Olaf, Jeroen Kooijmans, Lydia Schouten and Wim Gijzen. Curated by LIMA Amsterdam. Lima represents the collection of the Netherlands Media Art Institute (NIMk)now the NMIk no longer consists.
