Welcome to my site!

For years I have tried to intervene in politics through critical theory, work with university students and children, storytelling, theater, and artwork. Throughout all my projects, fairy tales have played a major role because they offer a utopian alternative to the deplorable real conditions of our times. Consequently, my website is my endeavor to share my work with readers interested in changing the world, that is, democratizing democracy and fostering social justice. Keywords in everything I have done and continue to do are — truth and hope in keeping with Herbert Marcuse’s concept of the Great Refusal. I believe we must all reject and resist the degradation of humanity, and so I’ll conclude my brief welcome with a call for all power to the imagination and compassion for all living creatures on this earth!Amsterda4
