Willem Boogman



›Winter‹ is the first video I made on my own music, in this case the fifth movement of ›The Road To Here‹, performed here by the Ottoni Quartet and Wybe Kooijmans - organ.
The live recording of the premiere was made by Bert van Dijk in the Orgelpark in Amsterdam.

A grant for ›Een oog in zee‹!

Very happy with a grant from the Performing Arts Fund NL that makes it possible that, after a long period of preparations, I can start composing the new music theater work ›Een oog in zee‹, commissioned by Foundation Noorderklank! I feel privileged to work in a great team of fantastic and inspiring people: Salomé Roodenburg - libretto and scenography, Helena van Heel - mezzo-soprano, Vincent van Amsterdam - accordion, Fokke van Heel - horns, Kenzo Kusuda - dance, Zephyr Brüggen - stage direction, Nanny Roed Lauridsen - production. ›Een oog in zee› is based on the myth of Ariadne and Theseus, which we'll present in a new interpretation.

Een oog in zee

In preparation: the music theater performance ›Een oog in zee‹ for which I'll write the music. This is the trailer that hopefully opens doors to many performances at various venues (season 2021-2022), and reasonable honoraria for all participants. I'm really looking forward to it!
