Grondbeginsel-

Sonic performance

Commissioned by theatre production company Karavaan. 

 

'Grondbeginsel', which translates into 'general principle', is a location specific contemporary performance, created in collaboration with music theater maker Cassandra Onck. 

The audience dove into an audio experience, containing the personal stories of 3 people with different backgrounds. The questions that connects them all: "How does geography shape identity? Does the notion of common identity exist in a city such as Alkmaar? ".

Using a custom made mobile speaker system, samples from conducted interviews were triggered by button-click, creating a contrast to a narrative soundscape that was simultaneously filling the space, consistently expanding and contracting the focus of the audience; a zoom-in/zoom-out into the personal stories and the bigger picture of identity manifestation.
