Theatre performance by Yahmani Blackman

For the graduation of Yahmani Blackman I designed the stage for the theatre performance 'Het Knippa Meisje'. Based on stories, interviews and clips from Surinam, I guided the theatre maker towards a visual translation of her story to stage elements. A vivid tropical atmosphere with both useful and aesthetic elements to make this piece come alive. See pictures for the result.
This performance premiered at 'De Krakeling' theatre in Amsterdam (April 28, 2018) and will tour from November onwards, starting in 'Het Bijlmer Parktheater'.
