"Fauna is a young initiative based in The Hague, creating one-night platforms presenting music, art and innovative projects. Founded to break through the boundaries of existing cultural islands, Fauna aims to outline a space where new creative forms find stage and audience. For it’s second instalment Fauna summons the desolate landscape of the Desert with local and international musicians for a night of dance-oriented experimental showcase of the most exciting young artists around. From hazy vapour-filled house explorations, to Berlin-school walls of synthesiser sounds, to girl duos and solo boys, 10 acts under one night bring the horizontal grandness of the desert to The Hague. In conjunction to the music program, Fauna also invites young interdisciplinary artists to transform the catacombs of HOOP into an exhibition space where the works collaborate with the musical performances in a joint concert, creating a unique atmosphere alien to the usual nightlife experience. In biology Fauna is used to describe the diversity of animals in a place or time. With every edition a geographical biome is chosen as the starting point for the participating artists to reflect on."
