Tamango at the Wall House. ©Jan Klug

Inspired by the Wall House, Dutch singer Meindert Talma wrote ten songs. "Tamango" turned out to be an intimate English-sung song cycle/music experience, telling the visitor about "The Tourist" (Jurgen Veenstra) who visits the Wall House Hotel to farewell his deceased former lover Jacky Hall (Alicia Ziff) – and gets ready to leave his own life. I used the walls (coincidence or not?) of the Wall House to project video images of The Tourist’s life and his struggle. The Wallhouse and the close-by Hoorse Meer created a great contrast with Tamango’s blues; Heartbreak Vinex. The performance involved three singers, a keyboard player, three strings and a percussionist. The audience was lead thru all of the rooms of the Wallhouse, witnessing past and present of The Tourist.
