Journey at Grachtenfest

House of Makers presents soprano Brigitte van Hagen who will perform an extended version of ‘L’Invitation au Voyage’ (Baudelaire / Duparc) with composer Nicholas Thayer and pianist Setareh Nafisi. Together with choreographer and director Peter Leung they have created a performance based on the idea of language, communication and interpretation. Through sign language, music and text, both digital and live, they have created a mesmerising world of movement and music that allows the audience to empathise with how the performers express themselves. With the continuation of this project they hope to create a space for an integrated audience and performers alike.

'Kin' New work at Het Amsterdams Theaterhuis

‘Kin’ part of Dance Stories series at Het Amsterdams Theaterhuis

- Exploring relationships -

Choreographer Peter Leung (House of Makers / Dutch National Ballet) is directing a collaboration between dancers Erika Poletto and Frederik Kaijser; composer and performer Nicholas Robert Thayer; theater maker, video & light designer Hendrik Walther; violinist & improviser Miriam den Boer-Salmón. As makers and performers these artists all share something very clearly in their work, they cross disciplines creating contemporary work. 
‘Kin’ is a creation where the relationships between all of these disciplines are brought to forefront. The performance is based on a space where all of the performers come together through a constant stream of consciousness that brings the inside out and creates phrasing for their performance. This results in monologues, dialogues and conversations between the disciplines ultimately exploring relationships.

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE!

De Dans Ontsprongen / Theater Na de Dam

fullsizeoutput_16ed.jpeg


On the evening of Remembrance Day NL (Dodenherdenking) on May 4 at 9 pm, theatre makers and artists throughout the Netherlands are committed to creating awareness and to remember and reflect on the soldiers and civilians who died during during World War II. During the tenth edition of Theater Na de Dam, more than a hundred performances will be played simultaneously, each relating in their own way to World War II.

Alongside a thought provoking team of artists I will be creating an evening theatre piece based on the story of holocaust survivor, Edith Eger, the ‘ballerina of Auschwitz’, who as sixteen year old had to dance for the ‘angel of death’ Josef Mengele. This performance explores the relationship between perpetrator and victim, bringing their stories into the present- lest we forget.

New work for the National Youth Orchestra 

Pieter van Loenen - viool

Peter Leung - choreografie
Lisenka Heijboer - regie
Hendrik Walther - licht
Niels Nuijten - dramaturgie

In Over Orpheus ziet u een pas de deux tussen muziek en dans. Young artist Pieter van Loenen en dansvirtuoos Frederik Kaijser nemen u mee op een ontdekkingstocht geïnspireerd door de hartverscheurende mythe van Orpheus en Eurydice. Na een korte maar vurige liefde wordt Orpheus als zijn geliefde Eurydice sterft na een adderbeet alleen achtergelaten in het rijk der levenden. De held laat het daar niet bij en weet de schimmen van de onderwereld met zijn prachtige zang en lierspel te betoveren. Hij mag haar daarop meenemen, op voorwaarde dat hij niet omkijkt op weg naar het daglicht. Wanneer hij dat toch doet ziet hij nog net de schim van zijn geliefde teruggaan naar het dodenrijk…

Eventide

New work with interdisciplinary performance company House of Makers at Ostade A'dam

Come step into a strange, wonderful world!

We grow up so very fast; working to live and living to work. We spend so much time online, which is not a physical space. It doesn’t know the warmth of other bodies, or the jolt of suddenly looking someone in their eyes. Is this really the reality we want to create for ourselves?

House of Makers believes we could all benefit from a bit of wonder and a very real, offline experience. Eventide is an immersive theater experience which invites play, wonder and excitement. Step into the unknown and explore the boundaries of what is familiar. Think of this performance as a time machine, throwing you back to when you were a kid. At the start of it all and so eager for any experience.

House of Makers explores the boundaries between various disciplines through out all their work. They are a writer, a dancer and a choreographer collaborating with many different artists. They are fascinated by the role of the performer and its relation to the audience. House of Makers’ work leans on live performance and has an inquisitive and often dreamlike quality.
