A tiny advertisement in a local newspaper asking for volunteers performing as extras in a theatre play was the start of a new adventure. Had no idea what it supposed to be like. The complete performance took place in several houses along the canal in the city centre Kampen. “Behind The Front Door” is written, produced and performed by actors of AvonTura. Behind every front door was a new surprise for the visitors. All the scenes behind the front doors had a special theme.
Together with a bunch of great girls we had to perform about beauty through the history.
The act took place in a (how suitable) a wellness centre: Centre Cosmétiqe Kampen. The proprietress of the centre took part in the play too, with her little daughters. When the audience entered the building they experienced all sorts of “flash backs” from the past about beauty and cleaning. My part was dressed in a fifties bathing suit and ditto sunglasses using the vintage sun lamp. After that walking to the bathroom having a facial mask while using the old laundry tub or the Victorian wash basin and pitcher. In the mean time surrounded with a collection of rubber duckies, soaps and decorations from the past.
We had such a great time together and a lot of fun! Sold out plus great reactions of the visitors.
For now I’m spic-and- span fresh and fruity till Christmas :)
