A meeting between Rotterdam-born and raised actor Jeroen Spitzenberger and the New Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra

Jeroen Spitzenberger is just as virtuoso in Memento Mori as the jazz musicians he shares the stage with. He breathes life into his self-written lyrics between the violence of brass and percussion. Lyrics about… death. Or rather our mortality, a lifelong fascination of the actor.

Dying is uncomfortable for many people. It is inevitable and final. Always sad, sometimes a relief. Surrounded by open doors and at the same time the greatest mystery. The orchestra and Jeroen set out on an evening in which mind and heart are touched. A funky memento mori, if you will. Because dying doesn't have to get in the way of your enjoyment of life.
