Met bewoners van de Wesselerbrink en Regine Hilhorst (theatergroep de nieuwe Koning) is in opdracht van de gemeente Enschede, stadsdeelbeheer Zuid de voorstelling "Wesselerbrink Ballade" gemaakt.
Hierin wordt een typische buurt (brink) in Enschede neergezet met de ongenoegens tussen de verschillende bewoners.
De voorstelling won de LPB award 2008 voor het beste buurt en cultuurproject van Nederland.
recensie from "Tubantia"
The actors, director, set designer, producer.
awarded: first price. The happy (but tired) set designer and -producer.
ovation at the end of the premiere
Concept of the set: behind the walls and curtains, and the houses that surround the squares (brink).
from the archive of Enschede: a picture taken about 1960, the time of the play. This is a typical Brink: houses surround a square with a playground and a bench where the mothers are supposed to watch their playing children.
this is how it looks now.
Closed curtains at night. This would be transformed into the set. The walls would be presented by curtains that could be opened easily. The televisions (left over from Part Two) would comment, illuminate or subtitle and are also natural part of the interiors of the houses.
