Self-portraits of Delfshaven

In Self-portraits of Delfshaven, visual artist Hans Bossmann, theatre maker Brecht Hermans and an inclusive group of actors with and without disabilities from Theater Babel Rotterdam explore the area of Delfshaven in Rotterdam. They stop at 15 meeting places, to draw with inhabitants and visitors on XXL furniture and collect stories about the places, the people and Delfshaven.

 

The stories can be read (in Dutch) on www.zelfportrettenvandelfshaven.nl. You can follow the project on Facebook. Self-portraits of Delfshaven is on tour from the 16th of April until the 9th of May, with a closing performance on Sunday 12th of May at Theater Babel Rotterdam, Mathenesserdijk 293.
