the oerol festival is a cultural celebration that takes place on the island of terschelling in the netherlands. every june, the island is transformed for ten days into a unique natural stage for live performances, music, and visual arts. oerol means ‘everywhere’ in the sense of covering an entire land, hence using the entire island as a platform for exhibitions and shows.

during this year’s oerol festival, ‘loud shadows’ has been presented as a joint project done by kate moore, the soltz, leineroebana and plastique fantastique. it is a collage made by artists coming from distinct backgrounds: dance, music, and architecture. plastique fantastique has presented a monumental design, yet mobile, soft, and transparent. its skin influences the environment as much as its inner space offers a clear view outwards. its purpose is to create an intimate place where dance and music is merged, and the perception of time is challenged.
