Project: Tribute to Michael Jackson
Responsibility: Creative Director and Show Director
For: Royal Netherlands Airforce Orchestra
As creative director and show director, Martin was responsible for various theatre shows of the Royal Netherlands Airforce Orchestra.
Together with a creative team of musical director and conductor Jos Pommer, Choreographer Patrick Kiens, Martin was responsible for the concept of the show, the musical flow, the casting, staging and set design.
Michael Jackson is such an icon, that it was a challenge how to honour him. Because there are too many impersonators around, the creative team decided to do this show with women only.
It was an honour to work on a tribute for this icon in music and life.
It toured The Netherlands with 40 sold out shows.
