10th storytell-festival in Amsterdam, a festival concerning
the art of telling stories. The festival is spread over
several theaters throughout the city. I was responsible
for the design of the 'Rode Hoed', an old church in
the center of Amsterdam.
In the direction of Ton Lutz, several people in the
age between 10 to 80 years told stories based on their
a situation where all speakers where visible, each sitting
on a chair which related to their age and lifestyle.
The lighting was used to make changes from each storyteller
to a grand piano for musical intermezzi played by Joop
