CAST (Cornubian Arts&Science Trust) received support for a commission of Manon de Boer. De Boer made the film 'Try-out' for Groundwork, a three-year during project of CAST that wants to attract international artists. The project is focused on sound, image and action. De Boer is selected because her films tend to focus on the relation between the indivudal and collective and its relating creativity. 'Try-out' creates an image in which a group of children are followed in their own intimate world of games and make-believe; the soundtrack consists out of sounds and fragments of conversations, which results in a timeless portrait.
