The Life of Matheo is a story about a young African child called Matheo. One day when he’s out to get groceries he comes across a crow who tells him about a shortcut to the village he has to go to. Matheo decides to listen to the crow and takes the adventurous alternative route. On his way he comes across various different animals. Each with their own perspective, the animals teach Matheo important things about life.
In this story music plays the main role. The music will bring you along with the adventures of Matheo where through sounds and rhythm Matheo’s emotions will stimulate the listeners’ imaginations. Listeners will be taken away in a surreal fantasy world far away from our own but in reality closer than we might think.
In this project Micha Lorenz, Antoine Duijkers, Miguel Boelens and Teun Creemers meet each other on stage to represent the story of Matheo. With help of Hans Platenkamp as a storyteller they’ll perform a 45 minutes or 75 minutes show suitable for an audience both young and old.
