NOTES ON HOPPER

 

REVIEWS

On universal wisdom, on who we human beings are in essence. On the optical delusion of thought as the cause for the separateness we experience.

A glimpse of heaven, DIY in 20 min

is an inspiring search for the self, that is always aware.

My Name Is, a moving and impressive tale, with beautiful images and intimate music.

Notes on Hopper is a gentle but strong lesson in darker aspects of art history through jazz.

BIO

I write, sing and create (theater) performances and installations, often inspired by visual art and designed within a current social theme. The main driver in these creations is an attempt to answer the question Who Am I (and WTF am I doing here).


At an early age I discovered the book "An End to Time", a conversation between spiritual teacher Jiddu Krishnamurti and quantum physicist David Bohm about the ground of our existence. This was the beginning of a lifelong search that led me to special places and experiences, including 5 years as a practicing Buddhist.

I started out as a dancer, studied vocals at Codarts Rotterdam, engaged in some acting and ended up in the theater. Originally a singer songwriter I sang in many formations, started writing to question the meaning of life, love and our roles in society, and evolved into a librettist.

In these productions I collaborated amongst others with composer Paul van Brugge (Golden Calf 2005), pianist/composer Dimitar Bodurov,  and jazz pianist Jeroen van Vliet (Boy Edgar Award 2014).
