“A Vervool experience is organized in a private setting or public events. One thing is always the same: the show is always created and curated to the theme of the event or any celebration you might want to have an experience to never forget. To guide you through the vast amount of events that our team was a part of, we have made a small selection of previous and upcoming Vervool experiences. A Vervool experience can be booked worldwide. Contact us to find out what Vervool can do for you.”
Dutch furniture, interior, and lighting modern design company Moooi was founded by Marcel Wanders and Casper Vissers in the Netherlands in 2001. On Thursday, February 27th, Moooi organized a Monster Party to present new fabrics, a new rug, and the all-new, 10-foot long ‘Monster table’, which Ted Steinebach covered with matching pastry ingredients while creating matching sounds from Vivienne Aerts and guest musician Mariel Roberts on cello and effects. Vivienne also designed our costumes and masks for this show.
Vivienne & Ted celebrated the passing of Rembrandt – 350 years ago – by creating their ChocoJazz show in the style of Rembrandt at Museum the Lakenhal Leiden in the Netherlands. Rembrandt’s time period, The Dutch Golden Age, will be presented in sound, visuals, and flavors. Sounds, instrument, and ingredients from that time period will be used, but also the pigments of Rembrandt will be used to create a contemporary interpretation of Rembrandt masterpieces. And afterward, everybody gets to eat this old-meets-new artwork…
For the NHK Japan show “Catch! The World’s Top News” we were filmed while going to the galleries, enjoying some art, at the Market in the Bronx, picking up some microgreens from Koppert Cress, in our home on our big blue couch and yes, during our show at Der Pioneer in Brooklyn. The result was a 6-minute feature that has been aired on January 15th and viewed by 13 million viewers on Japanese television.
A night to indulge in: The twenty-course dessert menu stands out from every other dessert experience you have ever tasted. A showcase of conceptual bites that combine classic desserts, haute cuisine dessert techniques, and desserts that are made with techniques from a savory kitchen. Inspired by John Coltrane, the menu feels overwhelming as much as it has a natural flow…In ten staggering ‘movements’ The courses will pass by, rather an opera than a restaurant.
A unique ChocoJazz show in the theme of Mondrian and De Stijl, all about colors and elements: red, yellow, blue, and black & white. With every edible canvas, Vivienne and Ted will explain through diverse other painters what they have in common with Mondrian and De Stijl. Vocal jazz and a string ensemble complement the sweet interpretations of the master’s paintings.
All culinary one-bites are based on art, emotions, and music and are driven by haute cuisine techniques. Don’t expect only chocolate, but also cake, coffee foam, cardamom gel, infused rosewater, amarena-cherries blanched in port wine, hibiscus crumbles and other explosions in your mouth. And, while Ted is filling the evening with his goodies, Vivienne mixes her original compositions with the electronic inventiveness from Dutch bass player Robin Koerts. Together they are combining jazz, live loops, visuals, and soundbites. The efforts of Robin, who is also known from the video-samples of the Wereld Draait Door (a Dutch tv-show), and Vivienne’s vocal jazz songs (with voice, loops, iPad apps and synthesizer) blend together in this new musical concept. Video fragments like youtube drummers, tennis players, didgeridoos, the Simpsons, and Wally, with their visuals ánd their sounds, are all part of the compositions.
