The 4 corners of the world represented by 4 percussionists: North - East - West - South.

N.E.W.S. was developed by the Global Performance Arts Group (GPAG) and myself to give new impulses to percussion as a performing art.
The first series of theatre shows were done in October 2017, to be succeeded by a second series in January 2018.

N.E.W.S. Facebook page


The show is constructed  around the corners of the world:

North - North America and Europe performed by me.
East - Asia with a focus on Japan by one of the Yamato 'The Drummers of Japan'.
West - Caribbean and South America by Simone Sou.
South - Africa by Carlo Hoop.

Local drum bands or marching bands will be involved in the project.

During daytime the 4 percussionists work the local bands on the same composition, but each in his/her special way.
In the evening the results will be shown to an audience in the local theatre.
After the intermission the 4 percussionists will play solo and together.
The grand finale will be with everybody together.

During the show images from each area will be shown in a film which will be specially produced for the performance.

Here is a trailer: a show we did at a big drum festival in Eindhoven Holland in 2014.
