Cellist/performance maker Katharina Gross and composer/percussionist Arnold Marinissen are founders and the artistic core team of the Gross & Marinissen Foundation, which realises interdisciplinary projects revolving around new compositions, cello, percussion and electronics.
Recent projects by the Gross & Marinissen Foundation include Pitch Dark, a collaboration between Gross & Marinissen and light artist Giny Vos, and Vorsicht, Katharina!, a composition for cello solo/voice/performance by Jan van de Putte. Performances took place at international venues and festivals.
Furthermore, during her 2020 residency at the Van Doesburg House in Paris, Katharina Gross worked on her solo music-theatre performance Sehnsucht, which premiered at the Cello Biennale Amsterdam 2020, and on the conceptualization of a new project, Transformation – a collaboration with French-Brazilian composer Aurélio Edler-Copes.
Arnold Marinissen is currently creating new work around texts by William Burroughs for Asko|Schoenberg, which will premiere at the Words & Music Festival 2022 at the Muziekgebouw Amsterdam.
