Wietske Flederus

If you were to ask her directly, Detour Guide Wietske Flederus would describe herself as a curious creator looking for a connection with others. Her favourite way of finding this is by taking visitors along through a story. The way in which this takes place differs each time: through a perfomance, installation, (audio)tour, or something else. Her favourite things are strong stories, the sound of rain on your tent and the first cup of coffee in the morning.

“I would like to give visitors an experience by questioning our surroundings and thoughts collectively. This could help them see things in their environment differently than they usually do.”
