Odorama 4 Amy Toner's choreography, expressing the relation between dance and scents, 2 februari 2016 - expressing the relation between dance and scents, 2 februari 2016 Odorama february 11. Whether derived from nature, or chemically constructed, odourant molecules have the ability to profoundly effect our behaviour, emotions and associations. At Odorama we’ll actively engage with our senses and explore everything that reaches and effects the nose. We will consider olfactory history and design that is experimental and challenging. And introduce you to the fragrance as a work of art in itself. Margherita Soldati (IT)

Our team pouring the samples at Rein Beer Fest - The Reinheitsgebot, or German Beer Purity Law, is one of the oldest food regulation laws still in function today. It limits the ingredients in beer in Germany to only water, hops and barley. The law came into existence in order to regulate prices and resources, but was later also used as a German beer marketing tool. On Saturday April 23rd 2016, the Reinheitsgebot existed for exactly 500 years, so we thought it time for a review, and the two-day Rein Beer Fest was born. How does this German… Lisanne Groenewoud
