Liesbet Swings studied scenography in Barcelona. She has designed costumes and sets for numerous theater projects in the Netherlands and Belgium and has also developed joint musical performances – alone and together with many others. She combines her artistry with the open and adventurous context of Artemis. In addition to the performances by Jetse Batelaan she develops innovative, stand-alone art projects that arise in the encounter between artists and children or young people.
A sung conversation about global warming between a brave little children’s choir and the entire audience
Tell me just how thick you are
And how long you will live
And about the holes in you
How old are you
How did you originate
And when you’re gone will we be gone, too
Or will Nasa build a new you
A brave little children’s choir is singing for us. The children are worried. They are angry. They want to ask us some questions. But we are not so sure about things ourselves. “Hello atmosphere, tell me just how thick you are, and how long you will live.” Whoever knows the answer, please speak up. All you grownups: are you brave enough to answer in a song?
