Juffrouw Kokolishi’s bruiloft

Izaline Calister was granted a special assignment by the ‘KIT Tropentheater’ to create a special concert based on Antillian children’s songs. Together with storyteller and actor Wijnand Stomp Izaline crafted a special theatre-show for children (6 to 10).

‘Juffrouw Kokolishi’s bruiloft’ tells the story of a schoolteacher with weddingplans but no groome-to-be. In the cheery and colourfull show Izaline teaches the audience (and some prospective suitors) children’s songs in Papiamentu. The traditional songs underwent a modern treatment in different Caribbean grooves. Izaline and Wijnand were musically accompanied by Eric Calmes, Randal Corsen and Roël Calister. ‘Juffrouw Kokolishi’s bruiloft’ toured the Dutch theaters in 2002
