SMOLDERING INTO NOTHING
Together with five graduating students of the ATD we will be creating a location performance at Karavaan Festival 2022. We will be stimulating cosmic consciousness in our audience To achieve this, we need to change our perspective. From a small world in everyone’s head, we must zoom out to the grandeur that the earth has to offer, to experience what it is like to be part of a whole. Whereas in the lockdown we all searched for the elements en masse, as a team we want to work with the element that appeals most to the imagination; Fire. No element has captured the imagination as much as fire. The daydreams and musings of man gazing into the fire formed the beginning of poetry, philosophy and science.

THE AUTOMATED SNIPER – THE INSTALLATION
At the end of September, I will be joining Julian Hetzel’s installation version of THE AUTOMATED SNIPER in Het Hem. You will be able to visit from the 24th till the 26th everyday from 14:00 – 20:00 in Zaandam
“The Automated Sniper” is a performative installation on militainment and warfare that explores the oscillating relation between the virtual and the real. Seeing is the primary tool for sensory engagement in drone operation. The work of the drone operator is both virtual and actual. The image is not immediate or real, but abstract and digital. Yet it unfolds in real-time. Seeing becomes doing. Watching becomes killing. In “The Automated Sniper” the gamification of violence is brought on stage. The performance is a battle and the stage is the battlefield. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

POST-PRECARITY AUTUMN CAMP
HOW TO SURVIVE AS AN ARTIST?
Platform BK, Hotel Maria Kerk and the INC invited me to join their autumn camp. They have invited fifteen recently graduated artists, designers, and theatre-makers to five days of conversations, workshops, and communal activities. Each day, they will address one important theme of working and living in the Dutch cultural sector: from working in the gig economy and money flows in the cultural sector, to experiments with crypto, staying happy and healthy, and durable self-organization. The results will be collected and distributed in a zine, to make sure that all (young) cultural workers can share in the developed insights.
Stay posted through my socials and their socials!
Will share these insights on my website as well.
