Over de Bogen: live experience

Musical walk on heights tells tales from Rotterdam

Strijbos & Van Rijswijk, Rotterdamse Dakendagen, O.

O. and Rotterdamse Dakendagen organise Over de Bogen (Over the Arches) in which you walk 2 kilometres across the roof of the monumental Hofbogen in Rotterdam, right through four city districts! Over de Bogen is the first and last chance to take this walk before this roof changes forever.

In the first and last weekend, special live performances of the composition can be experienced in the form of the Over de Bogen: live experience with headphones, in which the composition will constantly change in interaction with the surroundings.

For Over de Bogen, artist duo Strijbos & Van Rijswijk will compose new music and vocals with stories from the local residents around the Hofbogen, recorded by Merel Smitt and translated to text by Corinne Heyrman. Stories and live sounds from the city are interwoven with new music and live singing on the roof. These stories highlight not only the rich past of the train connection, but also what this object means for the neighbourhood now and the expectations surrounding the realisation of the future Hofbogen Roof Park. Enter a special acoustic world as you walk across the arches and literally and figuratively follow the traces of history to the present and future.

Please note: the minimum age to visit Over de Bogen is 12 years. The route across the roof takes +/- 60 min (end point: Voorburgstraat 2). The route back on the public road takes +/- 30 min, in total you will be on the road for +/- 90 min. Check out the full FAQ here.

Good news! Thanks to support from Rotterdam Onbeperkt, we have been able to realise a lift to make the roof of the Hofbogen accessible to everyone. For the Over de Bogen: live experience, lift seats are available for the performance on 23 May at 19:00. The sale is not through regular ticket sales but through info@o-festival.nl. Tickets are available to those who apply and until stocks last.

Lift seats are also available for Over de Bogen; from 17 – 26 May, you can go up and down the roof daily between 15:45 and 18:30 without using the stairs.

The live experience can also be visited with an O. day ticket or passe-partout. You can also do the walk without the live experience. A Rotterdamse Dakendagen ticket does not give access to Over de Bogen.
