De Ruimte, Amsterdam Noord
As you might know, WhyNot holds office at De Ruimte in Amsterdam Noord. Once in a while, we get to spice up their diner event Ditdit-dada-ditdit - three delicious courses and 4 short acts - with some movement and performance art! Next up, WhyNot presents Margo van de Linde, who has worked in the entertainment industry for over 15 years as an improviser, spoken word artist and M.C.
Margo fuses elements of talkshow, roleplay, cabaret and live music, and seamlessly mixes the scripted with freestyle. In fact, much of what you’ll hear from her is live and draws inspiration from the space and the people present in it.
