DJ Jan

(1965) is a great lover of a wide variety of music, both to play himself and to listen to. As a DJ he has been active in various organisations and groups. In Cultureel Centrum X (Leyden) he devotes himself to world music, taking the dancing people with him on a musical journey round the world. In the poets and musicians collective NV De Nieuwe Wanhoop (The New Despair Ltd.) and as part of the DJ duo Fragment the accent lies on mixing soundscapes, selfmade samples and classical music. During Winternachten he will bring together these various styles in a subtle way.

    An interactive journey

    In search for a book by the writer you discovered tonight, sit and talk with other festival goers, or just recovering from it all. That's what the theatre's foyer was for. DJ Jan played music and writers signed their work in the bookshop. Visual artist Valerie van Leersum and composer Gerco Aerts built an interactive installation in the foyer. They invited the visitors to travel to Surinam, Morocco and Indonesia with them, listening to stories of a country left behind, a journey, future and desires, family and traditions.
