Station to Station


Maartje Nevejan directed the 4 hours live performance Station to Station, in the Amsterdam red light district, on Good Friday 2000.
In collaboration with Mattmo productions.

Performance

The whole neighbourhood was linked with artists to make a performance about mourning.
What is the meaning of “the passion”, the last days of Jesus, 2000 years after?
Among the performers were the drug addicts, the prostitutes, the old retired people, the high school and the elementary school of the neighbourhood.

For weeks there were rehearsals on the schools, in the old peoples home, the buddhist temple, in the churches and red light rooms in the Nieuwmarkt.
Stars were the priests from the church. The performance caused a lot of upheaval in the city.
Artists included: Marina Abramovic, Ger van Elk, Eli Content, Marc Mulders, Desiree Dolron, Gijs Frieling, Kadir van Lohuizen, Theu Boermans, Herman Franke.

Multi media

This play was connected to the television series ’14 Stations, ecce Homo’. 

It was broadcasted on the same time as the performance at 3 o’Clock(the time jesus died according to the scriptures) in the Netherlands and in Belgium.
It was  aired live on the Internet, than only just beginning as a new medium, as crazy as it sounds.

A year later it was broadcasted in Finland and Italy on Easter.
