THIJS VAN VUURE

I studied biology and philosophy at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. After my master's degree, I studied instrumental performance and music composition at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Utrecht, and at the Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam.

I create projects where art, philosophy and science and their reciprocal influences are a central theme. For example my project 'What is it Like to Be a Bird' (2012) has been shown throughout the Netherlands and Belgium and is still touring. I also make site responsive performances as a part of Collectief Walden, an interdisciplinary collective with which I perform nationally and internationally (Oerol Festival, Kröller-Müller Museum, Lieux Publics, France and Turnhout, Belgium).

 

Furthermore, I compose music for theater and play live in several formations. For an example, visit the website of HIT ME TV.
