Heilige Heide

In November 2020 Anton Dautzenberg & Rob Moonen, residents at the Vincent van Goghhuis AIR Vlaamsche Schuur on the estate 'De Moeren' Zundert NL, started investigating the possibilities of an auditive novel: 'Heilige Heide'.

In May 2024 Dautzenberg and Moonen are planning to return to the Buisse Heide to record more vivid sounds of nature. At the end of the collection of recordings, they will start editing the novel.

Both Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) and Henriette Roland Holst (1869-1952) lived here and loved the nature of the Buissche Heide. In 'Heilige Heide' both their spirits will descend and meet, seeking for peace for their souls.
