The costumes and set-designs by Wim Schermer tell stories that add expressive layers to a piece. Dramaturgical research forms the foundation for this. You don’t need to read all layers consciously to get the rich feeling you can continue deepening in what you see.
Schermers open attitude is special. From the very beginning he shares his ideas with the people involved, this leads to an interaction that results in a well integrated whole. Schermer sees set and costumes as full antagonists, constantly in dialogue with what is happening on stage. In direct co-operation with the performers, he tries to find the best way to support them entering into their role.
