Festival Cement 2015

Festival Cement  is het podium voor de nieuwe generatie Nederlandse en Vlaamse theatermakers, choreografen en schrijvers. Tijdens het festival presenteren de makers zich aan een publiek van (inter)nationale professionals, theater- en dansliefhebbers. Festival Cement vindt elk voorjaar plaats in ’s-Hertogenbosch, met de Verkadefabriek als festivalhart. Zo ook nu weer! Ik ben erbij, als gastvrouw van de ‘Nazits‘.

De kunst van het sterven

PR beeld De kunst van het sterven

”I’m going to die soon” were among the final scripted words of actor Mahmud al-Sawalka who died in real life while filming a death scene. A remarkable incident that inspired us (actor&theatermaker Bert Hana and me) to reserach the art of acting and the art of the death scene, by the programme De Kunst van het Sterven. Ten great actors will perform live their favorite death scenes from general theater history. Saturday septembre 13th, at the mainstage of Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, part of the Dutch Theater Festival 2014.

Nederlands Theater Festival 2014

Nederlands-Theater-Festival-2014The season’s top drama performances, which the jury panel and the audiences felt shouldn’t be missed, will be staged one last time at the Dutch Theatre Festival in Amsterdam. From September 4-14 2014, the theatres on and around the Leidseplein in Amsterdam will celebrate the stage during the Dutch Theatre Festival.

Together with Patrick van der Hijden I will host TF Talks: live interviews with directors and actors of the selected performances. Also I feel honored to moderate the Erik Vos Award and announce the preview of the new documentary ‘De dingen die voorbij gaan’, followed by a Q7A with director Michiel van Erp.

Fair Fashion Lab

Every day some 30 million people around the world are exploited so that we can wear clothes. The exhibition Fair Fashion Lab – by/at Humanity House – presents six striking approaches that demonstrate the power of design, art and technology in the search for unusual and surprising solutions to problems in the clothing industry. In addition, Humanity House wants to engage in dialogue with the clothing industry and with exhibition visitors. Therefore I will develop some public activities. Also scheduled is a Fair Fashion Festival. More information about the programmes and festival will follow very soon.
