Butterflies & Bats (4+)

Nicole van den Kroonenberg

Would you like to have wings? Fly and float, everywhere you want to go? Butterflies and bats can! Come and make special butterflies and bats with sticky tape. Roll up lots of sticky tape until a body appears, long and thin or small and thick. Then the legs, a head with feelers and of course wings, so that the butterfly or bat can fly away. A whole swarm…
 

Landscape Lumen

Julian van Buul, Vincent Vriens

When the sun sets, the landscape comes to life.
Landscape lumen is an audiovisual installation, whereby several beamers are used to transform an existing landscape into a visual spectacle. Immerse yourself in this surreal dreamworld. Old locations get a new meaning; stories are told with and from the landscape.
 

Biodome

Beer van Geer, Jarno Burger

Visitors are invited into the dome to interact with light and sound through the feedback from their own body. Because the installation makes it possible to project in a corner of 360 degrees, you are immersed in the visual experience of your own breathing and heartbeat. The biodome is an exciting combination of art, science and technique.
 

The Dream Tree (4+)

Nicole van den Kroonenberg

Everyone has wishes, (secret) dreams and desires… What is your dream or wish? At our dream tree, you can leave all your dreams, wishes and desires. Write, draw, craft your dream, put everything in a beautifully made (match)box and give it to the dream tree. By giving your wish/dream attention, you will plant the first seed… and who knows!

 

 

 

Play!

Eveline Wawoe, Nicole van den Kroonenberg, Pim van den Wijngaarde, Wouter Widdershoven

The Dangle Men! (5+)

Pim van den Wijngaarde

Dangling in the wind with gawky legs and swaying bodies – we are going to carry them around in a big parade, with music! But first we are going to make them: from paper of course! With your own body as a model and everyone helping each other. We first draw an outline of each others body, then we are going cut them out and decorate them with paint and pieces of paper and such. Attach a piece of string, put it on a pole and stick them high up in the air and.. let them dangle in the wind! We are going out with the Dangle Men!

Will you come too? From age 5 and up and the more children, the more Dangle Men!
