What people say about The Performance Bar


"The original dadaists would be jealous" VICE


"a messy, anarchist and anti-elite performance" Theaterkrant


"The practical definition of disruption - just go there" visitor review

The Performance Bar is an initiative by Daan Draait and Studio Borstlap.


Daniel is a multi-artist who is involved in a range of fields such as dj-ing, theatre, performance and film. 

Florian works as an autonomous artist and performer and also leads an existence as captain of a ship.Together they share a passion for outrageous performances. Previously, they collaborated as The Wild Dancers Union which re-engaged people with their inner wild dancer. With The Performance Bar they realise a longstanding dream to create an exciting place for performance art in Rotterdam and beyond. The Performance Bar explores new ideas and operates like a good massage. The process can sometimes hurt, especially where you feel a bit stiff, but you will always walk out with a more flexible mind and body.
