Paul Haenen has been known for decades as a Dutch media personality, often appearing as Margreet Dolman of Dominee Gremdaat, his alter egos. 30 years ago he founded the Betty Asfalt Complex together with his partner Dammie van Geest. The theater featured Haenen’s own plays and cabaret performances, alongside many other shows. At the BIMHUIS he will perform with the big band led by Konrad Koselleck. The music of the Konrad Koselleck Big Band unites people. The leading orchestra offers its audience inspiring, adventurous and groundbreaking concerts with artistic, emotional and social relevance. With music as a connector, the big band aims to reach different audiences and cultures. ‘Sure, it’s as loud and impressive as a big band is supposed to be, but beyond that it’s a revelation to hear how serene this bunch of metal can become, how Koselleck makes use of all the dynamic possibilities of his ensemble’ (de Volkskrant).
