Binnenwoud (Indoor Forest) will enchant you with fun concoctions, colours and a forest laboratory. In addition, kids get to participate in Loes Schaap’s performance with the adults as the audience.
Someone is waiting for you. She stashes and stirs, she shakes and she sprinkles. She searches for colours that are hidden deep inside plants and trees. What colour is hidden in oak bark? Or in a stinging nettle? The longer she searches, the more she becomes the colours of the forest. Jasmin Hasler’s performance is about nature’s invisible colours and how you can make them visible. For example, by making paint from tree bark, leaves and plant roots; you’ll feel a bit like a witch.
The Nature Colour Lab
You mostly know trees and plants from what they look like. But what kind of colours and sounds are hidden deep inside plants and trees? In the forest laboratory, you will find out for yourself. Stir, shake and pour. Dye, stamp and paint, using natural colourings. What melodies do trees hum deep inside? Play one of the tree harps or the tree trunk drums. The Nature Colour Lab is for everyone aged 2 and up.
Jasmin Hasler’s Indoor Forest is a part of Bosk: a walking forest consisting of over a thousand trees, that will tour through Leeuwarden city centre for a hundred days, calling on people to change the way they view nature.
