Rembrandts Spiegel by Saskia Boddeke

Rembrandts Spiegel is a multimedia performance about the life of Rembrandt van Rijn. This performance not only shows his life as an artist, it emphasises the human side of Rembrandt. His fear of getting blind, his vulnerability and concern about mortality of life is being reflected by his mirror. Most of all this performance is about the relationship with the three most important women in his life: Saskia van Uylenburgh, Geertje Dircks en Hendrikje Stoffels.

Premiered at the Rotterdamse Schouwburg in 2007
