MU In Real Live Thursdays #8: Knuffeltherapie

Because we all could use a cuddle right now!

Knuffeltherapie (Cuddle Therapy): Dutch Lyrics, universal energy!

We can all use a cuddle! Stippenlift and Bas Kosters embrace their audience – from an appropriate distance – in MU Hybrid Art House.

For an hour, Stippenlift en Bas Kosters take you along in their own world, where you can feel a little less lonely in these times of isolation and aversion. Immerse yourself in the visiual opening programme of music and videos that will be projected all over MU, and finally enjoy a Stippenlift live session again.

Especially for Knuffeltherapie (Cuddle Therapy) the inimitable Bas Kosters made five human-size cuddly toys. Maybe you are one of the lucky visitors who don’t have to spend this evening alone?

Please note: there are two separate sessions, the first starting at 20.00 and the second at 21.30. There are links to EventBrite below, make sure you select the right session.
