During preproduction in 2009, the creative team was in need of a technician to take care of technical direction and operating the lights.

The first performances would take place in a church dating back to 1903, where I was asked to come up with low-budget solutions to operate the temporary lighting installation wirelessly. I’ve also coordinated the adaption to the Hetveem Theatre and operated the lights during those performances.

More on KOOR (“CHOIR”)

Musical theatre

The choir enters the stage, the conductor takes his place – the concert begins, but KOOR isn’t a regular choir concert. KOOR is a concert, KOOR is theatre, KOOR is a musical theatre piece that revolves around a choir with its members questioning their identity, their position, their relations with the other members, group pressure, rituals, politics, love and the binding power of music.

KOOR premiered in November 2009 in Amsterdam.
