Mark your calendars: Rewire will be back from 8 to 11 April 2021 for its 10th edition.
Since 2011 Rewire has been presenting adventurous music across a range of venues in The Hague, from churches, old factories and abandoned spaces to the more institutional theatres and pop venues. The tenth edition of the annual festival, taking place at more than 20 venues and different sites across The Hague will continue to showcase emerging developments in contemporary music around the world. The festival programme highlights forward-thinking artists who push boundaries and rewire our perception of music and performance today.
The tenth edition of Rewire will be expanded with an extra day, taking place from 8 to 11 April 2021 and incorporating a number of events from the cancelled 2020 festival edition. The festival can already reveal that the following commissioned projects will be presented at Rewire 2021: Hildur Guðnadóttir presents ‘Chernobyl’, Leo Svirsky & The River Without Banks and the Music for a Busy City programme featuring five new pieces by composers Ain Bailey, Genevieve Murphy, Pete Harden, and Yannis Kyriakides, created in response to specific city centre locations in The Hague. Special projects by The Caretaker & Weirdcore, Semiconductor & Eartheater present ‘Fracture Patterns’, and SOPHIE are also confirmed for Rewire 2021.
