Cosmology and Constellations

‘“Time,” I mean what on earth are they even talking about?’
Working on a scene from Constellations by Nick Payne. Striking how themes from my own life clearly come together in this play.  Image by @hubblespacetelescope .

Do I play chess? – Yes, I do!

A recent audition inspired me to learn how to play chess.  Paulo Coelho helped and challenged me, and he taught me how to play the game.  Eyeopener: Chess is fun!  Why didn’t I do this earlier?!  I studied physics, mathematics and astronomy.  Doesn’t that match with the stereotypical idea of a chess player?

My first taped audition @ SAG-AFTRA

Below are stills from my first audition that I taped at SAG-AFTRA. I had so much fun working on this. It was the best example of, how Tim Phillips says it in his book: “Audition for your career, not the job.”

First of all, I LOVED reading the script, and then working on the French accent and this character was fantastic. I learned so much just from doing this audition. I am very grateful for the opportunity. Big #shoutout to my manager Rosella Olson for getting me the audition and to the #sagaftrafoundation ! #whatablast #gratefulfortheopportunity #audition #sagaftra #sagfilm #featurefilm #greatscript #funcharacter #sagaftramember #unionactor @ SAG-AFTRA NY

Performing for clean water

Get rid of all your plastic disposable bottles!

Today I worked together with ‘t Klokhuis and the Dopper Company to inspire the children of the YMCA through performance theater to be gentle to life on earth and the oceans and to stop using so many plastic disposable bottles and plastic bags. I wrote a short script for a puppet show and I got my inspiration from the Dutch book “Stella and Stinky and the plastic soup” by Christine Algera.  #dopperbottle #plasticbridgeproject #cleanwater #savetheearth #savetheoceans #noplastic #childrenstheatre #performing #tklokhuis #artistslife #environment

Research for my new play

I am doing research for my new play about an old subject: Einstein’s daughter. I wrote The Story of The Einstein Girl many many years ago in 2011. Now I am writing a completely new play based on mysteries around the daughter of Albert Einstein.

Many fascinations of mine meet again. #goingbackintime . Inspired by my own Master’s thesis that I wrote in 2009, the Amazon Prime / National Geographic series Genius and by Michele Zackheim’s Einstein’s Daughter, I will go on this creative writing journey.  I am very excited to be writing a full length script again, for the first time in years. #feelingnostalgic #studentlife #flowoftime #physics #relativitytheory #cognitivescience #alberteinstein #einsteingirl #persistenceofmemory #salvadordali
