BUIBui poster

www.facebook.com/BevorderingUtrechtseImprovisatie
BUI brings together Utrecht’s improvisers. Together with Moira, she organizes a monthly evening of adventurous music. In exciting combinations with dance, visual arts and poetry, the boundaries of improvisation are degraded. Utrecht is on fertile ground for collaboration between curious musicians and other artists. BUI stands with both legs in this earth and lets the Utrecht arts grow! The evening consists of two main acts and concludes with a freeplay session for participation (for all improvisation art forms). Sign up for the freeplay is on entry.

The collective:
Elsa van der Linden – saxophone
Mees Siderius – drums
Rogier Hornman – cello
Steven Kamperman – clarinet
Dion Nijland – bass
