Wat je zingt ben je zelf

What you sing is you yourself is a musical performance and is about Lenny's story. Lenny knows a song that she wakes up to every morning. A song that is always in her head. Or well, she doesn't know the whole song. She only knows two rules. It is sung in a language that she does not know and whose meaning she does not know. All she does know is that her father always sang this song to her. But no one actually knows where her father is.

Lenny would like to sing her song on the colorful evening. Because if she sings her song, her father might come and watch? But then she has to know the whole song, so she goes looking! Will she manage to find her father's song and sing it on the colorful evening?

Lenny's song is a colorful and musical performance about who you are and where you come from. It is also about your origins and where you come from, about finding your own identity. Because for this performance we are going to work from the stories and backgrounds of all the players.

When creating this performance, we work partly from a script and partly from the players. This means that you learn to work with texts and play a role, as well as to devise scenes yourself about the theme of the performance. The song will also be partly written by the players themselves and of course there will be singing!

The performance is made by Keri Folkerts, she has many years of experience as a teacher at Hofplein and for this performance she is looking for players aged 7 to 11 who love playing, singing and dancing. You enjoy writing lyrics or lyrics yourself and you are interested in where you come from. We are looking for a colorful cast for this performance, so the more different cultures, the better!
