The length of your feelings The length of your feelings
July 11th, 2011

If you get 8 amateur dancers together, each with anywhere between 2 and 10+ years’ dance experience, and you measure the length of their arms, then you get an average of 0731. That’s the sort of thing that choreographer Katrien van de Camp does. She’s not your average dancer or choreographer. First of all she a fighter; second of all, she rotates your perspective and prods you to jump out of your comfort zone and into uncharted territory.


Food visionary Food visionary
January 18th, 2011

I just spoke to Franke Elshout for an hour, but it felt like 15 minutes. We talked about food, local produce, crockery, (as well as the bio-industry, stress management, beer). Franke (28) is one half of Keukenconfessies (Kitchen Confessions) with Maarten Lockefeer, a food design studio and catering company. She is a foodie, a teacher of food design at HASkennistransfer in Den Bosch, is a mother-to-be (at the time of writing, 10 weeks to go!) and I think of her as a philosopher. Her connection to food is creative, intuitive, and it’s also larger than life.


STRP Festival impressions STRP Festival impressions
November 28th, 2010

Well, if you want to contemplate life, the pace of modern life, your youthful imagination, play, connect with ideas and other people, and take time to just slow down and smell the flowers, then STRP Festival was the best place to do it this weekend. As well as looking forward to another conference and more great international acts, like those put on over the last ten days, next year you must reserve one or two days out of next year’s festival to check out the EXPO good and proper. I know I will. Some great footage was captured, but I couldn’t do it justice (maybe later, though). STRP is an experience and one that must be done with all 5 senses. See you next year.


Powerful photography – Resilience Powerful photography – Resilience
September 25th, 2010

The opening of Resilience exhibition and book tells of a photographic and anthropological journey with the Roma – individuals with all the dramas and challenges in life that we all face, and the added obstacle of being stigmatised the world over.
“See the Roma as people – not as Roma, but as people.” – Marin Farcasiu, Roma and Roma translator for Resilience.
