Watch our frogs jump across the wood, making all kinds of sounds creating music. As the string quartet `Four Frogs in the Woods` we play everything from classical music to free improvisation and the possibilities in-between, exploring the opportunities of contemporary and modern music. Our strings resonate together to make a net of new worlds to show you, new stories to tell you and new adventures to take you.

Anne Eding (NL) is a violinist & viola player, composer, theater maker and performer. She started playing the violin at the age of 5 and can't remember a life without.
During her study, at the conservatoire of ArtEZ, she researched music from the subconscious, to find a way of creating from pure intuition.
Her graduation, a visual and multidisciplinary performance, was both the result and the start of this journey.
At the moment Anne is exploring the relationship of movement and music in performance and theatrical performance.
She doesn’t see herself as a musician, but rather an explorer or adventurist in the world of sound, movement and visual art.
