Janne Schra is on a theater-tour and after having performed as Schradinova and -before that- as a member of Room Eleven, she now tours under her own name. And I was extremely thrilled when I saw that she’d come to Assen, my hometown. Our theater De Nieuwe Kolk was opened earlier this year and this was to be my first visit to the theater.
The 19th edition of Swingin’ Groningen is held this year. Quite impressive considering the 5 years the festival was on hold. It got a ‘reboot’ last year and thankfully they’re back to stay so this year Groningen was swinging again for a good three days.
