During the Zeeland Nazomer Festival from August 24 until September 4 the podcast D'n Overkant (The Other Side) will be in the air 24/7.
A year ago, when the semi-opera Grenspaal 369 was postponed due to Covid-19, the festival asked the opera's artistic team for a Covid-19-proof alternative.
And we came up with the concept of a prequel to the opera. Ten new scenes about moments in the life of the three characters from the opera, moments before the story of the opera starts.
It was a lot of fun to make this podcast. I rewrote parts of the opera, composed some new pieces, produced the music and did the complete sound design. Below there's audiotrailer of D'n Overkant
In this podcast you get a glimpse into the lives of the three colliding characters from Grenspaal 369. We get to know Imani on her perilous journey as a boat refugee. We witness the meeting between Robert and Petra who will form a couple.
