The programme for the evening is:
7:30: "Wrapping for a Marginal Citizen" (13 min),
won the regional (Limburg) Gulden Vlam award in 1994 in the category, documentary.
The main actors are Sonja's young children, who simultaneously foreground as well as function as background for associative narratives on various levels.

5-10 min question and answer session.

"Athena" (2 min), 1994,
a dance-choreographic work on the theme of wisdom from a feminine viewpoint.

"360 Clockwise around Europe" (3 min) 2010,
music by Sandy Hoover (USA) Kath Tait (UK)

A response to living in Europe for the past two decades. The footage selected from the EU archive contrasts diverse aspects of European life-worlds: cities, institutions, as well as historical events with stills of our family in diverse places - a mix of private and public worlds; a commentary on how we all play a role in a changing Europe.

5-10 min question and answer session.

"Essences and Particularities" (6 min) 1994,
music by Evren Celimli (USA).
Mythopoeic drawings constantly metamorphasize while a choir sing in medival style. We often think of universals as being what connects us to God or to our soul. Here the particular or exceptional are the means for 'stories' or the 'differend'.

5-10 min question and answer session.

20:45 - 21:30, Viewing of the exhibition "The Unwanted Land" and discussion inside "Kainga a roto" (Home within)
