Solo performance surrounded by water

It’s always a pleasure and empowering to perform all by myself. For half an hour I’m busy singing, looping, using several effects on my keys and voice, starting beats and playing the piano. I would lie if I’d say it doesn’t increase my stress levels a tiny bit… All in good proportions though! Solo gigs keep it real. They force you to become vulnerable for the audience and that little bit of vulnerability keeps the performance purer than pure. Next to that the setting was just magical. Right after Conny Janssen Danst’s dancers performed in the immense reservoir of water to beautifully played music by Phillip Glass, I waded to this tiny stage and got to cast a spell over the audience once more. #love 🙂
