This project was initiated by mime actress and theater director Karina Holla.

Together we developed the concept of working with a selection of the most experienced mime actors of the Netherlands who have been on stage for the past 40 years and show their expertise at this point in time.

Our main source of inspiration was the work and life of surrealist Hans Bellmer.

The photographs are projected on the stage at key moments during the performance.

Beside the projection, they are also exhibited in the theaters in which the piece is performed.
