This video came about with the aid of Aziz al-Dilaimi (camera) and Arianne Hinz (director). Johan Kooi was responsible for the audio recording and Ruben Pest for technical assistance. The project was made possible by the Tijlfonds, part of the Bernard Cultuurfonds.

For Words, grooves & Gedachte I made projections to go with the poems of poets Els Moors, Frank Keizer en Tsead Bruinja, and songs by Broeder Dielemans. Jan Klug made music. We performed together at the Zebra Festival Münster, Germany (2017)
