Lieselot De Wilde creates a solo performance about being an artist from a personal and female perspective. 

In FigurineLieselot De Wilde takes medieval mystic Hildegard Von Bingen’s musical morality play Ordo Virtutum as a blueprint and contrasts it with her musical self-portrait. On the basis of this, she spins a story of losing, searching and finding. Jewish-German painter Charlotte Salomon’s question 'Life? or theatre?' inspires a sketch in which you can simultaneously see a portrait of a woman, a self-portrait, a portrait of an artist and a portrait of a human being.

In 2022 Lieselot De Wilde won the Ultima Award in the 'Music' category.

As part of 10x10, a collaboration between LOD music theatre and Arts Centre VIERNULVIER.

 

Part of ALL ARIAS Music Theatre Biennial 2023

The hero as bottle, a stringent reevaluation. I now propose the bottle as hero.
