Composer Amba Klapwijk graduated in 2020 at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, where she studied with Calliope Tsoupaki, Peter Adriaansz, Cornelis de Bondt and Jan van der Putte. Landscapes, experiences in nature, poetry, and visual arts inspire her in her work.

Paul Boereboom is a scenographer based in Amsterdam. He studied scenography at the Academy of Theatre and Dance in Amsterdam. After having been on stage as a performer Paul decided to question space no longer with his own body but as a designer. His work comprises spatial design, installations, and costumes, but also video design and works in Virtual Reality.

In collaboration, the artists created the work Alterations:

The heaviness
In between these threads
Containment to contain
Found and found body parts
Plastic cups,
unknowing
My flesh turns stale
the indistinct sounds
Used paper bags
A collective dying
as we travel inside
found and found body parts
between the flesh and the stone
my kingdom
my being
my body
What’s mine is yours
Within this concrete
I am alive
