March upcoming current student Simon(e) van Saarloos (DAI,2020) and current DAI / If I Can't Dance tutor Geo Wyeth will be residents at DELTAWORKERS, a nomadic artistic production and residence program that investigates the southern states of the U.S. as one of the last mythical places in the West.

Geo Wyeth (US, based between Rotterdam/Amsterdam, NL, and New York City) works with music, performance, installation, and video.

In the work, there is a gap between the dreams and the realities of Wyeth's characters. They are mostly loners or strangers, hovering in this space, devoted to their position but hoping that somehow that they can get out of it.
