"The Ship of Fools" (Sebastian Brant, 1494, Basel, Frontispiece, woodcut by Albrecht Dürer)

 

 

 


August DIRKS

 

August Dirks (Holland) finished in 1989 his studies Russian Language and Literature at the University of Amsterdam. Still studying, he engaged, in 1986, a lot of his fellow students to open an Amsterdam/Moscow cultural exchange office that brought dozens of Russian artists to Amsterdam and vice versa. In 1989 he started "The Opera Ship" that brought an opera to Holland and Germany. In 1992 he founded "The Ship of Fools", the sailing music-theatre in which he became a professional captain after years of sailing and a professional actor through more then 800 performances.

Leonid VLASSOV


My professional theatre career began with my graduation at the Russian Academy of Theatre "GITIS" in Moscow (1990) while joining the Tanganka Theatre for drama and comedy. At that time Taganka was a high level theatre with a global reputation, led by Yuri Lyubimov. Talented, young professionals got access to the most original and unexpected material and played with rich, surprising and daring fantasies, pursuing maximum integrity. The high aesthetic demands, the breadth and depth of the theatrical concepts – and their brightness - managed to captivate and to rejoice huge audiences.
These ten years of Tanganka, with prominent Russian directors like Efros or Vasiliev and with the great plays of a Tovstonogov, Gonsjarov, Brooke etc. formed, along with the GITIS Academy, my apprenticeship as an actor and director. For me, theatre is a journey through the soul, a unique opportunity to understand others and to tell them what I see and feel. For me, theatre is not just an aesthetic pleasure, but also, through the dialogue with the public, a significant influence on the zeitgeist. Therefore I select material for performances that is new and immaculate. For me, what counts is the seriousness and depth of the theme, the dramaturgical possibilities, the image, the atmosphere and the passionate commitment of the actors/characters.

Theatre should be a dialogue between the stage and auditorium. Most importantly, the performance leads to a real, deep-human communication. This requires sincerity of the actors. The theatre technique with which I want to captivate the audiences is based on 'methods of physical action', the 'magic what / if' of Stanislavski, the 'fantastic realism' of Vachtangov and the 'epic theatre' of Brecht. I want to speak with the adience about what is love, understanding, goodness and light, about happiness and what lives in man himself.
In 1993 I moved to Amsterdam and got involved in several theatre projects including "The Government Inspector" of the National Theatre. I played in over 30 film and television productions, such as "The Secret Service", "West Wind", "Waltz", "Kayzer en de Boer Lawyer Association", "Deadline "and" Football Women ". I also acted in feature films like "The Trip of Teetje", "Two Eyes from Lemberg" or "Dushka" of Jos Stelling. As a singer / narrator I participated in a wide variety of musical projects, acting both in the Amsterdam Concert Hall as well as in jazz venues. Leonid continues to work as a voice actor and writes and sings his own songs.

Ángel Hernández got his degree of audiovisuals at the Ramón y Cajal Institute of Murcia, Spain. A southern Spanish sunstroke made him conscious about the importance of making social cinema and to share his art to advance a hypothetical day when the world will be for everyone of us. In 2014 he won the first prize in the 'Creajoven Film Festival' in his birth town Murcia with his short documentary “The Bottled Desert” about social exclusion and poverty.

   Krien JOZEPH 
    Amsterdam office

Krien Jozeph has been a musical and intellectual supporter to the Azart Ship of Fools for over 10 years. Organizing theatrical parties on the ship and co producing plays and excursions. Krien Jozeph's choice of music is marked by a meditative style, which hypnotises the audience through repetitive sounds. In his ambient set he uses pulse-based minimal structures, taking music to a bare and basic level. Exploring micro-beats and spherical chords that can easily develop into classical pieces or intricate vocal experiments. For the dance floor the same structures are used; maintaining a minimal character, yet with an uplifting development into dub and techno based rhythms. Researching future electronic dance music. His sets on the ship are often fuelled with theatrical song and dance dimensions. A strong believer of the ideology hidden in the "world up side down", Krien currently works together with the boat on a future journey that will take them as far as the Sydney harbour and beyond!

He, then, enrolled in Latinamerican Studies in Middlesex University, London, under prestigious Chilean professor Salomon Meckled. After a prolific 10-year stint of free wandering and obnoxious thinking, he graduated in English and Spanish Philology in University of Barcelona (UB). His roaring (and often disturbing) poetry performances gladly took him to squatting places and obscure bookstores around Lisbon, Porto, Naples, Majorca, Madrid and again Barcelona and Valencia with so unfortunate shows as "New Dawning of Folkloric Activism" or "The Insomniac" (later compiled into a book). He did also translate into Spanish novels by Flann O'Brien and Alex Trocchi. (Tour 2006)
