In the SPRING in het Diepe podcast, SPRING’s programme gets explained in more detail. The podcast is hosted by art journalist Luuk Heezen. In episodes of around 20 minutes long, he starts a conversation with SPRING-makers about their work, their thought processes, and more.

There are four episodes in the 2023 season.

Episode 1: SPRING’s artistic director Grzegorz Reske

In this episode Grzegorz Reske, the artistic mastermind behind SPRING, walks through the 2023 program. Do you want to know why exactly these productions are featured? Are you curious about the overarching themes or do you want to know which premiere you really can’t skip? Then these are 22 minutes you don’t want to miss.

Episode 2: Samara Hersch and Gosia Wdowik

In episode 2 of the 2023-season of the SPRING in het Diepe podcast, host Luuk Heezen starts a conversation with theatre-makers Samara Hersch and Gosia Wdowik. Australian maker Samara Hersch’s production It’s Going to Get Dark premieres at SPRING. The work She was a friend of someone else from Polish maker Gosia Wdowik has its Dutch premiere at SPRING. The makers discuss their own productions, and also talk about how theatre can be used to give certain groups a voice in society and to start conversations about urgent themes.

Episode 3: Lucy Wilke, Paweł Duduś, en Kim_Twiddle

In this episode, Luuk talks to  Lucy Wilke, Paweł Duduś, and Kim_Twiddle from SCORES THAT SHAPED OUR FRIENDSHIP, which will have its Dutch premiere at SPRING 2023. SCORES THAT SHAPED OUR FRIENDSHIP is an award-winning performance which covers important themes like friendship, caregiving, and the way the bodies of the two performers (Lucy, whose body is often seen as handicapped, and Paweł, who self-identifies as queer) are perceived in society. During the short podcast, these themes are discussed. Lucy and Paweł talk about how they have been friends and have worked together for a long time, and the unique process of ‘inviting’ Kim into their friendship.

Episode 4: Ligia Lewis

We need to confront our history of racism and colonialism, not ignore it. This is what choreographer Ligia Lewis’ works are about. During SPRING 2023, she presents two works: Still Not Still, about the history of non-Western groups, and A Plot / A Scandal, about historical and modern (political) scandals. In this episode, Ligia talks about these productions, and the themes that are important to her and which she uses in her work.
