Het Figuur van wie het onmogelijk bleek de menselijke maat te nemen / Hart Koor

Hart Koor was established by RoosWiesBlauw for the narrative musical play of Het Figuur van wie het onmogelijk bleek de menselijke maat te nemen. With a group of 18 non professional singers from street and cirkel of friends, we rehearsed weekly on songs at the Kruiskade in Rotterdam. We performed Het Figuur at different locations among which Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam and Nieuw en Meer in Amsterdam. Costumes and images for the performance and songbook were made by visitors of De Pauluskerk Rotterdam. Lyrics and compositions by Roosmarijn Mascini and Wies Arts

Het Figuur... tells the story of an expedition to the oracle figure Het Figuur, of which it is impossible to take the human scale. Senor Hermoes guides us through the woods, where we hope to find some answers to the question of the 'humanisation' of the Earth. The expanding amount of human constructions and borders build on the landscape around us, as well as in our own heads, asks for an inhuman counterpart.
Unable to retell our journey in words we describe it in song and vocal pieces and become the characters of Slang Iss & Voortdurend in Beweging, Het Leek te Wezen & Roekeloze Vaart and Het Opdringerige Lijk, who we meet on our way.
