Stonework - and other updates

Stonework will premiere on Gaudeamus festival on September 9, followed by performances in Utrecht, Tilburg, Arnhem, Rotterdam and Oslo.

 

This brand new work is an exciting new direction for me and Mees Borgman. Together we are embarking on a journey into the unknown, creating works for and with non-humans, inspired by the urgency of the climate crisis. How can we as artists contribute to a more sustainable future on the planet Earth? Under the name Landmarks, we will investigate this in playful, experimental ways the coming years. Stonework is coproduced with Gaudeamus festival and is realised in collaboration with Casco Art Institute. It is made possible by the generous support of the Norwegian Arts Council, Stichting Melanie, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds and Dioraphte fonds.

OTHER NEWS:

The production witchmacbethforest has once again been postponed. The aftermath of the pandemic has made it impossible to create the right conditions for this special project. But it will come, in collaboration with wonderful artists like Mees Borgman and Marlies Heuer on stage, and composer Seán ó Dálaigh. In writing the play, I have received generous support from the LIRA fonds and Dramatikkens hus, Oslo. Stay tuned for more details on when this work will finally happen!

In the meantime, I am writing a new play, Landscape with Radioactive Dogs. This is project that I've been carrying with me for years - a story from my past about pollution, science and ambition leading to a disastrous result. The radioactive dogs of the title are roaming the earth, looking for justice - and justice means taking care of them, even if that might kill us. A public reading of the play will take place in the Netherlands in the spring of 2023. The work is supported by the Dutch Performing Arts fund and the Norwegian Arts Council.
