Residency w/ Colin Benders
Residency / Tivoli Vredenburg / 2020
Read a review of residency in Volkskrant (Dutch)
Colin Benders invited me to do a residency in Tivoli Vredenburg last year November. We decided to use the full lighting setup of Tivoli - and then some - plus a spatial Spät soundsystem to play a total of 16 shows in one week. Something spectacular happened in these seven days. We went in without knowing what to expect exactly, and in this one week we went from beautiful chaos to a somewhat recognisable dystopian sci fi narrative solely by improvising together every single show. It was like we were making a 3Dimensional film with sound and light, and all forces combined — spatial sound, music & scenography — slowly started moving closer to each other. An unforgettable ride.
A lot of big thank you’s go out to the awesome Tivoli Vredenburg crew hosting us and making us feel at home and a special thank you goes out to co programmer/operator Bas Mulder intern Victor Dissel.
