Stage & puppet design


For this children's performance (9+) about Africa we wanted the children to get away from their school environment and create a whole new ( African) world for this poetic performance. so I designed an African hut that was build up in the class rooms.

Some of the puppets i designed were painted on paper board while others were made from household utilities you can find in an average  African household.


Inspired on the book The Famished Road from Ben Okri

Directed by Guido Kleene.

performed by Peter Sijbenga, Arnold Dijkstra & me
