International Festival of Technology – Boost your senses!

,

No TEDxDelft events in the very near future but of course there are enough events to boost your senses: For instance the International Festival of Technology on the 7th, 8th and 9th of June. The technological heart of the world beats even harder with an unexpected mix of technology, music and art. Three days full of tech & fun! With Chef’Special, Lieven Scheire, Broederliefde, David Lemereis, My Baby, Bright Night, Youngr and many more.

Entrance is free.

How big is the influence of big data, bio technology and the dark side on your life? How far are we with the development of the superhuman? And can we develop new senses with technology? You will find out during the IFoT ‘Boost your senses’ edition! Check the complete program at www.ifot-delft.com and #IFoT2017.

In our opinion these are the absolute must sees:

  • On Wednesday the 7th of June stand-up physica and tv-personality Lieven Scheire explains in his own hilarious way how the Relativity of Einstein works. What did the guy actually mean?
  • Later that day the first ever conference in the world on superhero technology will take place, ‘The Secrets of Superhero Science’.
  • On Thursday the 8th of June science journalist David Lemereis explains in ‘The Future is Now!’ that everything in our lives has artificial intelligence embedded. And that’s just the beginning…
  • In the evening a special edition of ‘Bright Night’ takes place, with among others the infotainment show ‘The Unboxing Party’, known from television. Your host for the evening is Bright-TV founder Erwin van der Zande.

The International Festival of Technology takes place simultaneously with the TU Delft Research Exhibition. The largest science expo of the Netherlands where you can meet the brilliant minds behind 175 cutting edge technological and innovative research items. All events are in English.

The festival ends on Friday with an amazing line-up during the ‘Closing Party – Ultimate Boost!’. Chef’Special, Broederliefde, Youngr, My Baby, Falco Benz, Ronnie Flex, Navarone, CUT_, Jonna Fraser, Radio Eliza and many more boost you and your friends into the weekend!

The Great Warmachine at Theater de Veste Delft

,

The Great Warmachine made such a strong impression on its first run, that theaters throughout the Netherlands invited this English-spoken production back. A great opportunity to get an idea of the strong qualities of modern dutch theatre.

About The Great Warmachine
November of 2011, General Van Uhm, commander in chief of the Dutch armed forces, gave a lecture at the Amsterdam City Theatre, in which he argued that weapons help us to maintain peace. This soldier in a theatre inspired Joachim Robbrecht to write a dizzying piece that challenges the audience to look at the phenomenon of war from different points of view. The performers embody the likes of game designers, engineers, inventors, dreamers and trendwatchers. The Great Warmachine was selected for the Flemish Theatre Festival.

“Seldomly, a performance has discussed the worst and most serious news of the world in such a fresh and tongue-in-cheek manner. Its drive is astounding, and it draws the audience into the play more and more, physically.” (Flemish Theatre Festival Jury).

De Volkskrant wrote: “Robbrecht’s ritualistic performance works uniquely infecting. What matters here is whether you have let it touch you.”
Theaterkrant wrote: “Robbrecht’s script is funny, smart and fast. At moments, its words will take the audience with them to the scary depths of war rhetoric.”
