In November 2012 an art festival was organised to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Utrecht School of Arts. Having some roots in this art academy was enough reason for us to produce a short projected story for the festival. We have written an accessible show for all viewers that also pays an homage to all the hard working art students around the world.
'The Meristem' resembles our view of the creative and development process that many art students go through. We looked back at our development and realised that it was all about artistic growth, curiosity, making your way through and knowing that even at difficult times, there is always something that can inspire you back on your feet!
For an extra touch in the music, we formed a string quartet with students of the conservatory in Utrecht.
