Karen Willems (solo) - Terre Sol - CANCELLED
Jazz Up Your Kot
In order to slow down the spread of the corona virus, this show is cancelled. If you have tickets for this event, 30CC will inform you personally about further actions. Ticket holders do not have to take any action themselves for the time being.
“There are those who confirm and those who confront and never stop transforming.”
In the year that should lead to better development, Karen Willems dives into new adventures and will focus on a solo course. ‘TERRE SOL’ is the working title.
Sharing everyday life experiences. Honest and pure.
Seated on the ground, surrounded by a few wheelbarrows of material, Willems makes a journey through a bright world of possibilities. It is a musical ethnography with an industrial touch. No technical masterpieces, simply a celebration of touch. It is a freedom that entirely captures who Karen Willems is.
