To test the post-colonial discourse in practice I organize since 2012 workshops Wayangplay at Museum Bronbeek, a museum for Dutch-Indonesian (Post)Colonial and Military history in Arnhem. As an introduction I perform an initial scene adressing questions of identity which the public triggers to built their own puppet and play with it.

The titles of the introductory performances are crucial in that, formulated as a question - adressing ambigious questions of identity.

The workshops take place at the Museum Bronbeek, a museum for (post)-colonial Dutch-Indonesian history and a nursery house for Veterans.

The workshops adres topics of postcolonial history in an accessibel way:

Heros,Monsters or Demons? (referring to the exhibition Bronbeker in beeld, 2013)
How does the shadow of a hero, monster or demon look like? How does a scared hero look like? How does a brave demon look like? Who is a hero, looser or monster?

Folk or Sovereign/Prince, 2013
How do you distinguish the shadow of common people from the people within hegemonic power positions, as kings? By their head-pieces?

Carnival des Animaux, 2014
How does a system based on adminstration and census deal with hybrids?

War - A play. , 2015:
Which agent of war do you choose? The terrorist-ant, the tiger-general, the turtle-tank?
