Week 245

Our col­lab­o­ra­tion with Sub­alekha (code­named KEGANI) reached a mile­stone this week with the sub­mis­sion of a pro­pos­al to the Knight Foundation’s Pro­to­type Fund. We talked through the draft pro­pos­al on Mon­day, made some final adjust­ments after­wards, and sent it in on Wednes­day. It’s fin­gers crossed for now while we wait for a response. I spent […]

Lessons from Knutepunkt 2013

Recent­ly I trav­eled to Nor­way. Not because they still had snow there, but because Knutepunkt 2013 was in the land of lakes, fjords and good fish. Knutepunkt is an event that is host­ed every year in a dif­fer­ent Nordic coun­try and serves as a get-togeth­­er for the Nordic larp scene, full of talks, work­shops, dis­cus­sions […]

Looking back on playful Tweetakt 2011

I’ve just uploaded a set of pho­tos tak­en at the open­ing of the play­ful Twee­t­akt 2011 exhi­bi­tion. As you may recall, I was asked to curate an inter­ac­tive addi­tion to this youth the­atre fes­ti­val. The works I select­ed are in my opin­ion all won­der­ful exam­ples of the way play can lead to per­for­mance. Each was […]

Come over and play at Tweetakt

From my win­dow I can see guys build­ing the Twee­t­akt pavil­ion on the Neude square. They’ve start­ed today. Next week, the fes­ti­val starts. And I’m a lit­tle excit­ed because this year I was asked by Twee­t­akt to curate the inter­ac­tive exhi­bi­tion that will be on dis­play at the pavil­ion. Twee­t­akt is a fes­ti­val for per­form­ing […]

A taste of Mega Monster Battle Arena’s music

In 2009, we were involved with one of the 11kernenoperas pro­duced by Dario Fo for the fifth anniver­sary of the West­land munic­i­pal­i­ty. The result was Mega Mon­ster Bat­tle Are­na™, a mix between a game and con­tem­po­rary music the­atre for youth. The music was writ­ten by Daniël Ham­burg­er, who also per­formed it live at the shows […]

Making cultural events more playful

These are sketch­es from a pre­sen­ta­tion that I deliv­ered a while back to a room full of orga­niz­ers of cul­tur­al events and cre­ative agen­cies from Utrecht. This was the cul­mi­na­tion of a study com­mis­sioned by the city of Utrecht, in which we looked at ways of adding play­ful ele­ments to the pro­grams of some of […]

What do you get when you cross a game with an opera?

I’ve just added a write-up to the project sec­tion. It’s about Mega Mon­ster Bat­tle Are­na; a cross between a game and an opera com­mis­sioned by Dario Fo, which we were involved with at the start of last year. I still have fond mem­o­ries of this project, it was our first for­ay into the­atre, some­thing I’m […]
