Subbacultcha en We Are Public nodigen je uit voor een nieuwe editie van Loom: een terugkerend programma waarin theater, performance en muziek nauw met elkaar verweven zijn. Een avond van egaliseren, openen, reinigen, kammen, trekken, spinnen, opwinden, kromtrekken, dimensioneren en stralen. Onder de torenhoge bogen van de monumentale kerk presenteren we een audiovisuele dansperformance van Courtney May Robertson en grensverleggende concerten van Sarahsson en Bobbie.
For the third edition of Loom, Subbacultcha and We Are Public invite you to the Posthoornkerk on the Haarlemmerstraat. Underneath the towering archs of the monumental church we present concerts by Sarahsson and Bobbie, and an audiovisual dance performance by Courtney May Robertson. Get familiar with the program below.
Loom is a recurring evening-program that weaves together theatre, performance art, live music and DJ sets. “Ginning, opening, cleaning, combing, drawing, spinning, winding, warping, sizing and beaming.”

The work of composer, producer, performance artist and DJ Sarahsson is “a visceral expression of divine queerness and her experience with synaesthesia.” On The Horgenaith, Sarahsson blends bliss of the natural world with stone cold oscillations and harsh-noise. Elements of classical music are placed next to metal, experimental electronics and hardcore. On the emotional backdrop of her music, Sarahsson says: “I’m trying to reach a very specific feeling. One tiny point in the middle of a nuclear explosion where everything happens all at once, bittersweet and fierce, a moment when opposites collide into one. The nexus point.”
Courtney May Robertson:
the pleasure of stepping off a horse when it’s moving at full speed
As a trained dancer Courtney May Robertson’s work starts with the body, but spans various disciplines including video, generative art and writing. Recurring topics in her work revolve around a widely spread phenomenon she has defined as ‘the relentless desire to dominate’. In this solo performance Robertson employs a metaphor for self-control; that of a rider taming a wild horse. Encapsulated within an octagon of visuals, she combines poetry, dance, and song to explore “the struggle between embracing one’s desires, and regulating behaviour in accordance with societal pressures.”
