After two years of pre­pa­ra­ti­on, my inter­dis­ci­pli­na­ry pro­ject De meeu­wen van Tin­ber­gen will have its grand pre­mie­re at this year’s Oer­ol Fes­ti­val. This col­la­bo­ra­ti­on bet­ween Cow­boy bij Nacht, Staats­bos­be­heer and Muse­um Boer­haave is a hom­ma­ge to etho­lo­gist and Nobel Pri­ze Lau­re­a­te Niko Tin­ber­gen (1907–1988).

The pro­ject con­sists of a the­a­tre per­for­man­ce by Cow­boy bij Nacht, a small exhi­bi­ti­on (in coo­p­e­ra­ti­on with Muse­um Boer­haave, Lei­den) and an excur­si­on to the sea­gull colo­ny at De Boschplaat (in coo­p­e­ra­ti­on with Staats­bos­be­heer).

Later this year, per­for­man­ces are plan­ned during Fes­ti­val Kara­vaan (july, Hoorn), For­ten­maand (sep­tem­ber, Utrecht) and Muse­um Boer­haave (octo­ber, Leiden).

Fur­ther­mo­re, a series of ‘the­a­tri­cal lec­tu­res’ will take pla­ce on 5 dif­fe­rent Dut­ch uni­ver­si­ties in sep­tem­ber and octo­ber in coo­p­e­ra­ti­on with dif­fe­rent sci­en­tists from the fields of bio­lo­gy, psy­cho­lo­gy, phi­lo­sop­hy and cul­tu­ral and media studies.

More info (in Dut­ch) can be found on the pro­ject blog.
