The quiet nature of Amstelpark has been the drive that moved us to develop the concept for the festival, matching the artistic forms and the physical space under the constant questioning of our high-speed society.

SLOW DOWN Winter Performance Festival was a cultural booster that ran between 15 until 18 December 2011 at the Amstelpark in Amsterdam Zuid.
