For artist/filmmaker Dinanda Luttikhedde I wrote an essay on the occasion of her new filmproject DUIF (PIGEON). It is described by her as “a visual concert about a pigeon fancier waiting for the return of his dearest pigeon. A performance about longing, loneliness, teletext, shag-tobacco, and the benefit of the fluorescent tube.” DUIF consists of a tripartite screen presentation with a live-soundtrack by musicians Mike Kramer and Romke Kleefstra, with a spoken poem in Frisian (my mother’s mother tongue) by Jan Kleefstra. Douwe

My essay, which will be published in a booklet accompanying the presentations of DUIF / PIGEON, focuses on the relationship between man and animal and our troubled view of and complicated attitude towards ‘nature’.

DUIF will premiere at the Noorderzon performing arts festival in Groningen this saturday 17 August 2013, where it plays until the 19th. On 24 & 25 August, DUIF will be performed at the Cultura Nova festival in Heerlen.
