MUSIC THEATRALE PERFORMANCE

LIFEGUARD SWIMMING FOR BEGINNERS
Winner Subsidized makers-route Springplank festival 2018

Concept
‘’Reddingszwemmen voor beginners’’ is an absurdist music theater performance. What happens when an outside force takes all your control away? How do we make ourselves believe we still have direction over our lives? The idea that we will never sink, and will always float. Is having control a prerequisite for happiness in our twentyfirst-century concept of happiness?

Execution
A combination of vocals, keys, drums, bass guitar, visuals, dolpins, poetry, bingo and a performer. Hiding herself in her inflatable swimming pool, she draws her audience to an absurdistic world.
