Izaline Calister in her own words – “Last year I found a small new dream that is so close to my heart that it almost hurts. ‘Het Eiland Van Mijn Vader’ has me finding new paths. Telling stories, showing film footage and singing. I could have not done this without great friend, piano player, film- and theatremaker Thijs Borsten. As a first time visitor to Curaçao he came with a warm heart, clear sight, some sweet talk and a camera. He stayed at my home and charmed his way into everyones heart. He made it easy for my father to feel at ease. My father who spend a lot of time driving us around Curaçao and telling us stories. Stories about this island he loves so much. Stories about his life and stories about the past. So ‘Het Eiland Van Mijn Vader’ turned out to be an homage. To this island, to history, to family and to fathers. Coming fathersday weekend I’m coming to Curaçao to play it for my father for the first time. I’d like to invite you all to join us for a special night. June 14th and 15th we’ll be @ Fortkerk in Willemstad, Punda. Showtime: 20:00. Doors will open 19:30. Since Thijs doesn’t understand Papiamentu, We’ll be speaking Dutch. I’ll be singing in Papiamentu, English, Dutch and Spanish. Be welcome!”
