Sprangers is on a quest for connection and reconciliation in this program about the position of women in our day and age

In 2019, saxophonist Kika Sprangers composed the program No Man’s Land for the Grachtenfestival, to rave reviews. Commissioned by TivoliVredenburg, Kika gave a reprise a year later, joined on stage by Pynarello on strings, and Wolfert Brederode (piano), Thomas Pol (bass) and Jasper van Hulten (drums) as the rhythm section. It’s back, to be enjoyed by a wider audience. 

No Man’s Land is all about connection. Oddly enough, the focus on women can create a distance between men and women. Men can feel excluded, can fail to identify with the issue, or are afraid to speak up about it. With this program, Sprangers is hoping to find reconciliation. Her music is about connection, emotion. Character must come first, gender second. Or maybe it’s irrelevant to begin with?
