We were excited to have Spinvis (Erik de Jong) play at TEDxDelft 2012 last October. You can see his performance here:
On the day itself, it was still unclear if Erik could even make it to Delft due to family business, but he came anyway. That is the kind of artist he is; completely committed and using his emotions in all of his performances.
At TEDxDelft we made the announcement Spinvis will be the new cultural professor at the Technical University of Delft. Next week he will have his own show premiered at Theater de Veste in Delft . See more information (in Dutch) on their website.
Here you can hear and see for yourself how he tells a story in cut-up mini films disguised as pop music. Using letters written (or perhaps not written) to Justine Keller, he sculpts a portrait of this woman. Highly acclaimed in the national press, we are looking forward to seeing more of Spinvis in Delft.
