Agora Club

📍 Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Adapting the ancient Greek term Agora as a collective public assembly, Agora Club will transform De Marktkantine nightclub into an arena for performing collective thoughts through music, dance, design, performances and discussions. Guests will inhabit the role of Homo-Faber's (humans that think) and they will navigate cognitive experiences, meet transparencies, while exploring various neurological landscapes before joining a collective act of party and celebration. Along the way, they will be guided by a specialist hypnotherapist and a magician before getting awakened to the explosive Tanzanian sound clash of Sounds of Sisso and the unique beat making of TED Fellow Blinky Bill all the way from Nairobi, Africa.
