Prikkel – AM.OK

One actor, one dancer and 6 musicians performing inside a bubble in the middle of the woods. That was quite an adventure that took us and the bubble to Friesland for the Oranjewoud festival, to Terschelling for Oerol, and finally back to Amsterdam for the Grachtenfestival.

 

 

It is a production by Collectief AM.OK, together with the creators of the bubble Plastique Fantastique.

I can’t thank enough to Tijn Wybenga – composer, original idea and keyboards // Uri Eugenio – choreography and dance // Reinier Demeijer – actor // Kika Sprangers – saxophone a music // Geerte de Koe – violin and music // Jelmer de Moed – clarinet and music // Angelo Boltini – sound engineer, music production and live electronics // Karlijn Hemmer – production manager // Daisy Serena Smit – sound assistant // Jonne Kramer – text // Xander Straat – stage director // Alma Sua, Carsten, Daniel and Aline de Jonge – production of the bubble. Yena Young and Marco Canevacci – design and creation of the bubble.

Monday Match / Music and Dance

Every first Monday of the month at the Bimhuis one dancer and one musician chose a team that will have the opportunity to experiment and improvise live with an audience from the very beginning.

This session, on March the 5th, was one of the last ones after a lot of years of doing it every month. I’m really happy I had the opportunity to play with this great musicians and dancers.
