Each year, Zone2Source invites The Warp, known for their unique multi-media performances at the nearby Kunstkapel (, for our winter programme. During these dark days, Het Glazen Huis is the perfect setting for The Warp’s light artworks.

The come-and-go performance evenings are based on the installation of light, glass, and sound. For this event The Warp has produced and curated a set of specific works to explore the mysteries of glass, light, optics, reflectiveness and the unique spaces of altarity which it conjures. The performances are as followed:

The Ensemble Todo Modo (Dirk Bruinsma, Robert van Hulzen, Bart de Vries and Frank Rosalie) performs Selected Glassolallia - music made entirely on glass instruments. The Afterwards Search Party (Anthony Muriell, Lise Brenner, Andreas Tegnander) performs Minutiae – an audio visual performance of cutting images, texts, and glass based on the Diamond Sutra, a Buddhist text in the oldest existing printed book. Last but not least, the Paranural Record performs the Scrying Lights, a work of sound and light based on the occult idea of writing on black glass as a divine ritual.

After the performance nights, the light installation remains on view from outdoors daily until February 2nd. Recommended viewing time is after 4 PM during sunset.
