The Theater Season begins in Maastricht with the citywide celebration of Parcours, a trail of performances and concerts through the old city core. Art installations dotted the Vrijthof and jazz ensembles crowded into the alleyways. It was a warm and sunny day, perfect for strolling and stopping.
My favorites were three gigantic prehistoric birds that bobbed along the roads, a weird piece of performance art piece involving a man, a woman, and a boat in the Stadspark pond, and the precision dance Entusiasta Bateria that took over the Jekerkwartier.
And, of course, the little robot that cruised around town painting messages along every street.
