A popconcert with movie

We open our house.
We take it with us, because we want to change perspective, change view.
We are modern nomads.

In a travelling house, designed by the architects of the firm ZUS, Lizzy Timmers (Veenfabriek) and Marleen Scholten (Wunderbaum) will invite various musicians, performers and visual artists to temporarily populate this house.

The result is an extremely eclectic musical performance, with a filmed report about this journey.

The two singing curators will drag you into the night with African polyphony, stringent electro beats, philosophizing teenagers, steaming instruments and the ‘new way of living’ dance.
