The Music Theatre department will organize not 1, but 2 events in June. Experience the thrill of a night out, from your own home! The movie Daggers of the Mind will be released on Friday the 19th of June and the Show & Tell production will be broadcasted on Thursday the 25th of June.
The film Daggers of the Mind will have its online premiere on 19 June. This music theatre film, inspired by Shakespeare’s Macbeth, is about the fear of failure. This group production is part of the graduation process of fourth-year Music Theatre students at Codarts Rotterdam. Initially, the stage production’s premiere was scheduled for 21 April at the Maaspodium in Rotterdam. However, since all theatres are closed, an alternative platform had to be found for this project. For many weeks, students rehearsed from home for a real music theatre film and all recordings are now finished.
What happens when fourteen Circus students and their director suddenly can’t make theatre anymore? Then you get a film about both loneliness and connection. Jef Kinds (aerial straps artist) is one of the actors: ‘It’s unbelievable how we managed to make something wonderful although we are far apart, with some of us even abroad.’
Dance student Samuel van der Veer is looking forward to his internship at the NDT. In the meantime, he keeps busy with his interdisciplinary collective Octagon Blues. ‘Me and two fellow students make electronic music that also includes dance. It’s very exciting!’
