HET VERBAND VAN 

ALLES MET ALLES

An ode to warmth in all its forms, as well as a plea for the human being as an active link between cause and effect.  Images

We took over Het Huis Utrecht for one day and created an multidisciplinary chain reaction through the house. In collaboration with: Rhian Morris & Sam Bachy, Zarah Bracht, Jan van den Berg, Ed Bahonie and Juul Dekker. Images

On invitation of the Over het IJ Festival in collaboration with Frascati Producties, we started to build a bridge across the river IJ. A bridge which has been discussed for 200 years, but never has been built. Images

For the MAANdagnacht at Oerol Festival 2017 (an evening for science and art about the moon) we combined a rocket launch with a tea ceremony. Images

We made the theatre performance WINDSTILLEVEN in collaboration with the Oerol Festival, for a vast dune landscape and a lot of wind. A landscape experience about time, retaining and release.  More info and images

The earth contains three natural reservoirs: oil, soil and ice. These reservoirs were build in the duration of millions and millions of years into a delicate balance. A balance which is severely disturbed through our economical activities since the Industrial Revolution. More info and images

The Walden Collective read collectively Walden by Henry David Thoreau in Het Huis Utrecht. We shared our findings with the audience and made an installation based on Thoreaus thought that everything in life depends on warmth in one way or the other. More info and images

We played an adaptation of WALD for festival De Tuinmus in the Tolhuistuin (Amsterdam), organised by de Mus: NOORDWALD. More info and images

We moved a grey poplar that had blown down in the summer storm, in a straight line from its place of growth to the lake. This performance was made site-specifically for the Verwonderd Duinat the Nationaal Park Zuid-Kennemerland. More info and images

At the Oerol Festival 2015, we used the birch from WALD (Oerol 2014) as fuel during our concept development for Oerol 2016. The installation consists of a rolling hut that gradually eats through the burning tree, releasing energy as it goes. More info and images

A choreographed performance for an uprooted birch, a mime-artist and 12 pulleys, exploring the roots of man from a biological and philosophical perspective. In collaboration with Oerol and the Waddenacademie. More info and images

An artistically curated promenade performance exploring the border between nature and industry in a dilapidated brick factory on the border of The Netherlands and Belgium. This is where WALD began to be developed. A project of De Warande, Turnhout and De NWE Vorst, Tilburg in collaboration with Nick Steur. More info and images

A performance about tipping points in eco-systems and turning points in human thought. In collaboration with Oerol and the Waddenacademie. Also seen at the Kröller-Müller Museum. More info and images

An interactive installation that explores what it is like to be a bird. The basic principle is that birds live 10x faster than humans. Visitors to the 'vervogelhuis' hear birdsong slowed down by 10x and hear their own speech sped up 10x as they learn to sing like real birds. More info and images
