Resonate Productions

a theatrical radio show

Resonate Productions’ most recent show, FOR REAL, is about the intellectual undermining of women and the lack of interest in what they make, say or try to achieve in life. FOR REAL is a theatrical radio show in which the audience engages in conversation with three musicians and a mosaic of recorded women’s voices. Everything is underpinned by music and a completely new way of improvising, in which the musicians accompany risky conversations as they unfold. This leads to a shared conversation about this sexism of the spirit and soul. And about what it means for every human being to be taken seriously, to matter. Each performance will be recorded and broadcast as a podcast. *

FOR REAL will be hosted as part of Lunalia’s focus on musical journalism between 2022 and 2027. Andrea Voets is the festival’s associate artist for this aspect of its activity. Born in Bruges, Andrea Voets is a trained harpist and philosopher who is fluent in six languages, including Farsi and Modern Greek. She is the founder of Resonate Productions. This foundation makes musical journalism: performances and podcasts that combine incisive social journalism with many layers of original music. The goal is to start meaningful conversations about emotional blind spots in society and offer ways out of the problems they cause. Examples include Millennial History (best of human interest radio '22, Association for International Broadcasters), While We Live (best classical music 2020, NRC) and Wings & Roots. The foundation’s artistic director, Andrea Voets, is currently engaged in worldwide research into the question of how to feel safe, thanks to the selective FastForward grant from the Dutch Fonds Podiumkunsten.
