'at home'

In July 2017 filmmaker Lyndsay Bloom (USA), dancer Jo Stewart (USA), bassoonist Silvia Schildkamp, trombonist René van Haren and visual artist Bart Drost have worked together for 11 days within the walls of MAAS Artist Residence in Nijmegen, on what they finally called 'at home, a performance in six scenes'. Each from their own background, professional knowledge and language.

The artists hardly knew each other before, and to change that, they made drwaings with and for each other, they made music, they danced. They have shown each other photos  and objects with which they have a special bond. In the process, stories formed and it soon became clear that these stories are more or less universal, could take place in every home and every living room. Yet they are also personal histories, without the necessity of constantly specifying content and call things by name. The end result consists of six scenes of approximately 7 minutes each and was performed twice in public on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 July at MAAS.

Video registrations of three scenes you will find below. More information on the website of MAAS.
