MOEland, rijk van de armen teaser

Client Het Zunderts Toneel | Project MOEland.

Almost 12% of the population of Zundert, a small village in the South of the Netherlands, consists of Central and Eastern European workers, in short called MOElanders. Unofficial estimates run higher. On the street you meet this people everywhere but contact between the MOElanders and the people from Zundert is hardly seen.

MOEland tells no completed story. This subject is still evolving and very actual. Theater company Het Zunderts Toneel wants to give this new villagers a face by telling their story, and that of the local population. MOEland shows a series of mini-portraits of a group of Polish workers in an old shop. Writer Peter Dictus is inspired by the stories of current residents of his former childhood home and his memories of this house. In an old greenhouse the disciplines dance, drama, music and film come together in a mosaic narrative.
The show has a side program including education for highschool students, a bike ride, an evening where MOElanders and foreign people cook together and a photo exhibition.


During this special project Studio APVIS was part of the core team to share ideas, brainstorm and made a research trip to Poland. We are responsible for the projections and film in the play and facilitate the equipment and technique.
