Visual artist Hans Bossmann and theatre maker Brecht Hermans will work together again after Self-portraits of Oude Westen in 2018. On request of Theater Babel Rotterdam, they will dive into the Rotterdam area Delfshaven this time. Again, the duo will visit 15 places, where Hans will draw with visitors and inhabitants on furniture, and Brecht will collect stories about Delfshaven.
In Self-portraits of Oude Westen, we drew on furniture and objects belonging to the places. Now we will draw on big XXL furniture, that we transport on foot from Theater Babel Rotterdam to all the places. This way, the tour will become visible for the audience. Also new is that Hans and Brecht will be supported by actors from Theater Babel Rotterdam. This way, Self-portraits of Delfshaven is an encounter from the inclusive theatre company with its surrounding neighborhood.
An impression of Self-portraits of Oude Westen you can get in the video underneath, with many thanks to the ladies of A Small Production Company.
