ELECTRA was honored to be a recipient of a major grant in 2002, from the Dutch arts organization ‘Fonds voor de Podiumkunsten’ (Funds for the Performing Arts). The grant was given in recognition of artistic merit, and supported specifically the project ‘VOICE & VISION’, which featured ELECTRA ‘s performances of Louis Andriessen’s Shopping List of a Poisoner and The New Math(s), Christopher Fox’s Notes From a Cold Front, as well as new works by David Dramm, Ron Ford, Chiel Meijering, and Belinda Reynolds. The new works for this program were commissioned by ELECTRA and subsequently chosen for sponsorship by the ‘Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst’ (Funds for the Creative Arts).
In 2002/2003, ELECTRA produced this exciting multi-media program, working with program director Henk Schut to create a dynamic show. An exploration of the relationships between sung and spoken text, music, and images, ‘VOICE & VISION’ has been performed at many theaters and concert halls in The Netherlands and abroad.
