Performance during celebration of freedom 1945
For me, this was the beginning of several years of intensive collaboration with Lex. At about the same time, we also performed an extremely primitive dance performance a squaty stage on the schoolyard of the van Dongeschool, to celebrate the liberation with children of the South. Lex played a mimic role of old in this dear, as a partner of Lizzy Demmenie. This unpretentious spectacle, called the Magic Flute, was performed by a group of dancers and students with all the joy that animated us at the time and accompanied by Coby Lankester. On that afternoon we decided to continue performing enthusiastically for children. The seed was scattered, a few months later Scapino was born. Hans Snoek
