Karavaan Performances by Music Theatre Students

Estate Ter Coulster more than 600 years old
In honor of this ancient estate and the idea of ​​this estate for the future, third-year students of ArtEZ Music Theater are making an apocalyptic-satirical music theater performance about the far, far future of humanity. A book about this more than 600-year history will be published on 13 May. In it you can read about the turbulent history of the castle, the many farms and the colorful and influential, mostly noble, families who owned it from 1400 onwards. These families in turn had connections with important people from history such as: the counts of Holland, van Oldenbarnevelt, Johan de Wit, Vondel and Erasmus. The book is also for sale after the performance (as well as the Ter Coulster beer).

Last November he also worked with students from ArtEZ Music Theater on Doomscroller, a study into doom thinking, heavy metal and social puberty anxiety.
