Under the theme of INSTABILITY, the fifth edition of the festival will explore the concept of instability in the age of extreme planetary changes. We want to contribute to a necessary cognitive shift in our thinking about our place in this world.

FIBER Festival searches for a new sensitivity and meaningful actions. Through artistic instruments, audiovisual cartography, critical conversations and multisensory performances, the festival will explore what new narratives and experiences can prepare us for life in the coming period of adaptation and radical instability.

Openings Concert | 13 May

The Rest Is Noise: Jenny Hval + Félicia Atkinson

Jenny Hval presents The Practice of Love

The Practice of Love is a multidisciplinary immersion in music, literature and movement by Jenny Hval. Exploring sonic, visual and choreographic ideas while transforming voices, sounds and even bodies into texts, it investigates the connection between life and art, bringing together the possibility of creating art and relating to other people, while looking for empathy and a common language through speaking, singing and writing together.

The Practice of Love is co-produced by Black Box teater and Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival.

Location: Muziekgebouw (Amsterdam)
Date: Wednesday May 13, 2020


Félicia Atkinson (Live)

Soaking in the music of writer and sound poet Félicia Atkinson is an equally mind-altering experience. Exploring topics of improvisation, deep listening, ambient and language, her sources of inspiration are ‘‘women who wonder, dream, and create vacant spaces in their art.’’ Her haunting sound is a mixture of field recordings and ambient music, while using reverberations of gong, vibraphone and marimba to produce sonic landscapes that are both eerie and serene. In 2019 she released her latest album ‘The Flower And The Vessel’ to critical acclaim.

Dilettante (DJ)
Amsterdam based Dilettante will play before, in between and after the shows.
