De Dans Ontsprongen / Theater Na de Dam




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.



Text and Direction: Gerardjan Rijnders
Choreography: Peter Leung
Music Direction: Wim Selles
Dancer: Igone de Jongh
Actor: Pierre Bokma
Dramaturgy: Jaïr Stranders en Bo Tarenskeen
Production: Inger Stam / Karsten Stouten

Over Orpheus at Grachten Festival

New work for the National Youth Orchestra 

Pieter van Loenen - viool
Frederik Kaijser - dans
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.

Concept, regie: House of Makers
Tekst: Sterre van Rossem
Compositie, geluid: Nicholas Robert Thayer
Uitvoering: to be announced
Dans: Carlo Camagni, Frederik Kaiser
Choreografie: Peter Leung
Visual artist: Willem Stapel, Anouk van Kalmthout
