The performance is an adventure through collections of dream-like sequences. In the duet Tea Teearu (SNDO2) and I will be reading the spectators´ minds and exploring the lightness and fun of daily life. We reveal answers for questions like for instance how to calculate until 169, which contemporary health device is needed for a good posture and how to get rid of annoying ghosts.
This weekend I am going to present a very special research together with four beautiful people. We spent our process analysing songs and sounds from diverse cultures and practising them within the frame of a performance ritual. We refer to ethnicity and not nation, we refer to all existing spirits – some call it one god, we celebrate life and death and gather together to welcome the coming of spring.

The BLACK CLAUSE / Zwarte Klaas is rolling! We are still looking for funding so we ask the ART-CROWD out there: http://voordekunst.nl/vdk/project/view/2768-zwarte-klaas
Zwarte Klaas is the upcoming performance by SJAMANDADA / Sieger Baljon, Eva Kijlstra, Clara Saito, Dionne Verwey and me. We will be celebrating a Black Carnival on Sunday 16th November starting in the dusty VONDELBUNKER and ending up in the highly polished Rabozaal in the STADSCHOUWBURG. Join us and bring your own postcolonial version of Black Clause or Pete to the streets. No red lips, no negro wigs, no clean slave suits, just wild dark winter imagination, candy, jute, and sheer black fun!
