Menschen – Worte

It was a long time wish of composer Astrid Kruisselbrink to write a music theatre work for soprano Antje Lohse. When she discovered the poetry of Dada artist Hans Arp it all came together. The piece was produced by Stichting Knars together with the Kröller-Müller Museum, which held an exposition in 2017 of the visual work of Arp as part of ‘Hundred years De Stijl’.

Antje, harpplayer Mirjam Overlach and fluteplayer Marieke Franssen of Stichting Knars invited me to complete their team, still in need of a low instrument and a male voice.
