I’ll be performing at STEIM in about 25 minutes with the Genetic Choir and Robert van Heumen.
Jump om your bicycle and come now! :)
With only everyday objects and a few stuffed animals, and with barely any language, the accidental travel of the young ice-bear from the north-pole to the tropics and back is being told. The piece is about both the feeling of going on adventure and the longing for home.
The show features the Genetic Choir singing all natural soundtracks (pole winds, storms, waves/beach, jungle+apes) and a Whale Song composed and sung by me.
Premiere is on 15 November 2015 in the Amstelveens Poppentheater, at 14:30.
Wolfert van Borsselenweg 85a
1181 PH Amstelveen
The piece is intended for children from 3 years upward. Dutch language skills not required. Reserve tickets here.

In the wake of “(Dis)connecting the dots”, a research project carried out in the frame of the Carpet Sessions in Amsterdam, I just wrote an article which hopefully sheds a bit of light on the general issues that appear when bringing musicians, dancers and actors together on stage, in an improvisation context.
Any reactions and thoughts (e.g.: examples from your own improvisation practice) are very welcome!
