What do you leave behind when you are no longer alive?
Friluftsspil Snakkerbuorren plays No Man this summer by Raymond Muller, a tragicomedy with visual and absurdist elements, directed by Brecht Wassenaar. This piece, written especially for Snakkerbuorren, takes place in a place where city and landscape meet – a kind of Snakkerbuorren.
What do you leave behind when you are no longer alive? No It’s about a man who has always lived by the rules. When he is told that he does not have much time left to live, his world begins to shake. Was this it? Then he meets a young lady who inspires him to look for the meaning of his life. In that quest, he meets different people who show him, let him feel and experience what meaning (too) can look like. Everyone has their own quest. But what does it mean for the last part of human life? And what is there after him, after Man?
Snakkerbuorren – Doarpstún, 1st, 2nd, 5th and 7th to 9th of July, at 21.00, 20 euros
Motel Westcoast is back
The musicians from Motel Westcoast have not been able to perform much in the last two years. On Saturday, however, it is finally time again; then the band will be in Appelscha. As always, the 2022 trip has a theme: Back to the roots. There are all kinds of songs, such as songs by James Taylor, Crosby Stills & Nash, but also newer pieces like Buckshot LeFonque.
The man who started it all is singer in De Kast, Syb van der Ploeg. Singer Julian Thomas was contacted by van der Ploeg to go on an adventure and he was immediately ready for it. Singer Edward Reekers has also been part of the Motel Westcoast team from the first tour. Brenda van Aarsen has also been part of the collective for several years. She is the only lady who has her own vocals in a men’s group.

Meanwhile, the big news also reaches the wizard’s house Titus and Fien. But wait a minute … when the prince becomes king, Fien will never be able to become the most powerful woman in the land!

It’s about sophistication, sensitivity, wonder and power … | advertising
To bring art and culture to everyone’s attention in the broadest sense. KunstKamer Franeker wants that. From 1 July, KunstKamer presents Franeker three new art tastings from several well-known contemporary artists. Works by Han Klinkhamer, Henk Wolvers and Margot Olde Loohuis can be seen until 31 August.
Han Klinkhamer’s landscapes show an intense sensitivity in the imagery. In each painting one can almost see the pleasant struggle by using the material he is working with, both on linen and on paper. Henk Wolvers has developed as a master of porcelain. His objects are about movement, form, but also transparency and layers in combination with subtle colors. Each art form provides a certain experience, and this is also reflected in the realistic and colorful paintings by Margot Olde Loohuis. This artist is known for his mysterious underwater paintings.
Franeker – KunstKamer, Fri to 31 August, Mon to Sun 11.00 to 15.00, free
