trilogy “Searching for Involvement”

Together with theatre director Bjørn de Wildt I’ve researched the possibilities how to involve the theatre audience in a performance.
By three different studies we created a manual how to treat your audience while making a performance like this.
The main goal in this reasearch was:

” Is it possible to implant a motive with the visitor, so that he/she ends up in a dilemma in which choices have te be made.”

When you act from your own motivation and the choices you make have a direct result, the visitor will be more involved with the theme, instead of sitting at a tribune watching a theatre play.

The three performances, “De Uitverkorenen” (the Chosen Ones), “De Queeste” (the Quest) and “Heilige Grond” (Holy Ground) played at theatre “de NWE Vorst” in Tilburg, the Netherlands in season 2010-2011.
