Roodkapje is proud to announce the second exhibition in its new space on Delftseplein 39. The performances of Rotterdam-based artist Joey Schrauwen were highlights of last year’s outdoor Root Camp and multidisciplinary performance-festival Winterwolven. From half June to the opening on July 14, Joey is doing a month of exploration in Roodkapje. During the exhibition, there will be regular public performances.

How do I become a listening ear?
A voice left blank, in which to resonate You.
Your presence, Your mind, Your feelings and thoughts.
Allowing impressions to enter,
and soothing any cravings to express.
The way we tend to interact is way too loud already.
You might hurt your voice, which you need to sing that inner aria of yours.
I will see if I can get in tune with you,
so we can hear You from just where You Are.

Joey Schrauwen, whose roots are in Rotterdam and in breakdance, graduated as a Theatrical Performer from the Maastricht Academy of Performing Arts in 2014. The productions he has made since then include Stopping the world (2016), for which he constructed a large, rotating wheel. His work starts from the moving body and the sense of wonder. In his own words: “In my work, I look for ways to challenge what is ‘real’. Where does our imagination become so true that it enters reality?” In recent years, Joey Schrauwen has worked with the likes of Guilherme Miotto, Davy Pieters, Peter Missotten, 155, Sanne Nouws and Jerzy Bielski.
