Friso van der Steen talks about Toneelschuur at Cross CoMix Rotterdam
Friso van der Steen will be interviewed together with graphic designer and cartoonist Joost Swarte on October 8 at the Cross CoMix Festival in Rotterdam. They will talk about their collaboration for the unique Toneelschuur theatre and cinema in Haarlem, which was created between 1998 and 2003.
To visualise the style of the new Toneelschuur, Joost Swarte created four drawings. They formed the basis on which Mecanoo and Swarte developed the building design. The result is an inspiring building with a slanted glazed facade which extends the foyer towards the streets of Haarlem.
Cross Comix is a new festival which shows the many manifestations of comics and cartoons and emphasises their importance for arts and society. The festival includes performances, exhibitions, debates and talk shows, and highlights the intersection of drawn images and other art forms such as theatre, architecture and music.
