Stories about loneliness

How does loneliness smell, sound, feel? Eenzamens/Iensuminske is a multilingual, literary performance about lonely people. For their Sprekende Stenen (Talking Stones) project the writers Nicole van den Berg, Raymond Muller, Remco Kuiper and Sytse Jansma engaged in conversations with people who for all kinds of different reasons are struggling with loneliness.

What to do when something like this happens to you? This has resulted in a number of moving stories. Nicole, Raymond, Remco and Sytse will recite their written stories during this performance, which indeed poses the question: aren’t we all in fact a little lonely from time to time?

Eenzamens/Iensuminske is the result of ta collaboration between literary Sprekende Stenen (Talking Stones) project of Studio Sytse Jansma, Over de Drempel and Leeuwarden UNESCO City of Literature. For more information (and works) please check
