Van der Mastenstraat 36, Hofje van Gratie

Sunday September 9, 13:00 – 16:00 hours

Being famous, the sea, tranquility, apple pie with whipped cream, recognition, a home. ‘500 years of desire ‘ is a film and theatre performance about life in ‘hofjes’. Actress Gitta Fleuren and filmmaker Kim Schonewille let desire appear, disappear, surface and fade. As residents of the 500 year-old ‘Hofje van Gratie’ they asked themselves the questions: who have lived here? What were their desires? And is that still visible? 

Non-stop sneak preview of this project, which will be on show in 2019.
