Robert’s sense of direction is quite impeccable, without it, I’d be lost. One forgets to prepare for getting lost. Not Robert though. We got on the wrong tram at the Antwerp train station, the most beautiful train station I’ve ever seen. But we still made it to the venue with time to spare.
De Audio Plant is an old, multi-storey carpentry workshop converted into art studios, bars and venues. It’s really cool.
Warra showed us around. He renovated the spaces to look like they’ve been around forever, with old, used tiles he found online, wooden panels stained chestnut brown and bars made of doors. I met an old friend Kay. She showed us the silk-screening studio and books she bound and printed with her students.
De Audio Plant offers a vegan dinner to the public, and I was the after-dinner entertainment.
Warra set up microphones around the stage to record the show. The sound was impeccable, with high-quality speakers hand-made by a friend of the venue.
A corner of the huge attic was quartered off by felt blankets, making a cozy room for us to sleep in.
We rose early for a long train-ride to Berlin… (14 hours)
Instant coffee, appelsap, brood and ham.
Note: I will be performing at Parc Fringe, Pop Showcase!
