De Notenkraker

Curaçao, 14th of april 2018

Het sprookje ‘Kibranechi’ (Notenkraker) in Luna Blou, georganiseerd door het Projectorkest Curaçao, met deelname van bekende lokale musici, muziekschoolleerlingen en buitenlandse gasten. Het beroemde ballet van Tchaikovsky, De Notenkraker, beleeft een unieke premiere op Curacao in een bewerking tot tweetalig muziektheater. Gouden Griffel winnares Imme Dros en Gouden Penseel winnaar Harrie Geelen hebben toestemming gegeven om voor de lokale productie hun teksten en sprookjesachtige beelden te gebruiken. Ook de producent van deze versie, het Nederlands Balletorkest, heeft bij grote uitzondering toestemming gegeven het materiaal te gebruiken. De Notenkraker is een verhaal waarin de strijd tussen goed en kwaad centraal staat. Op een winterse dag in Nederland, krijgt Katie voor haar verjaardag een notenkraker in de vorm van een pop, die later tot leven komt. Op een vliegende schotel reizen Katie en de Notenkraker langs verschillende exotische landen en wordt zelfs Curacao niet overgeslagen. Elk land heeft zijn eigen dans en muziek. De melodieën zijn erg vrolijk, spannend en herkenbaar. Het verhaal wordt afwisselend in het Nederlands en Papiamentu verteld door Crisèn Schorea. De Papiamentu vertalingen zijn van Judy Sprock en Bunchi Römer. Naar aanleiding van deze uitvoering is er ook een (niet-officiële) vertaling bedacht voor het woord ‘Notenkraker’: ‘Kibranechi’. De muziek wordt uitgevoerd door Het Projectorkest Curacao. Een orkest van ruim 30 musici, waaronder lokale professionals Eric Calmes, Pepito Reyes, Manuela Galmeyer-Ríos, Arjen de Graaf, Ruth Hoevertsz en ervaren volwassen amateurs. Bijzonder is ook de deelname van talentvolle vioolleerlingen van de Akademia di Musika Edgar Palm van het Cultureel Centrum Curaçao, (Young Strings CCC), die moeiteloos alle vioolpartijen van blad meespelen in het orkest. Blazers onder leiding van klarinettist Hein van Maarschalkerwaart en bevriende musici uit de regio en uit Nederland maken het orkest compleet. De muzikale leiding ligt bij dirigent Anneke Volbeda. Het geheel wordt op de piano ondersteund door Ilja Huang, die ook de algehele organisatie heeft. Een jonge danseres van Ecole de Danse, leerlingen van Jeugdtheaterschool Drazans en geprojecteerde beelden helpen het verhaal vertellen. Regisseur is Björn Sluiter. Er zijn twee middagvoorstellingen op 14 april, om 3 en 5 uur. Het concert duurt een uur. Kaarten á 20 gulden zijn te koop bij Mensing’s Caminada


Curaçao Creative Economy Seminar for Entrepeneurs

Curaçao, 16th of march 2018

It is known that innovation occurs across all industries, but that innovation is more likely in the creative industries than in many other sectors. The creative industry touches many other facets in an economy covering a wide array of industries contributing to socio-economic development, generating revenue, employment and global cultural diversity. However, the creative industry is often neglected and for many difficult to comprehend. Through this event, we want to bring change in the way the creative industry is perceived on the island of Curaçao. By presenting the diversity, interconnectivity, potential and needs of the industry, we want to inspire the community to reconsider the industry as an important one that should be advanced (Fireside Chat). Secondly, we want to help those in the creative industry to improve and professionalize their business by connecting them to available support instruments (Happy hour Meet-Greet-Eat in the patio).
