Cancellations due to Corona

Dear friends,

This is a bizarre time. Suddenly we have ample time to reflect - on what we are doing - on how much we do - on how we work. Suddenly we have ample time to reflect on how everything is connected. Pause. A science fiction scenario becomes our reality. The invisible world of microbes controls us and suddenly the whole world is focussed on the same thing. So that ís possible after all.

Theatres, churches, temples and even Brexit are all side issues for a while. Everything that seemed essential and inevitable, has been wiped from the table in one clean sweep. This is very painful, but also a chance. A chance to 'wake up'. When everything comes to a halt, suddenly there is a lot of space. I’m curious what the world will be like after this. Maybe we’ll have a BC (Before Corona) and an AC (After Corona.

We’ve also had to cancel a list of performances, like many others: the international tour of ROLE MODEL i.c.w. DOX, our new production with Sadler’s Wells London, Genevieve Murphy’s premiere at SPRING festival, and also 8: METAMORPHOSIS at Oerol is uncertain. This is a pain we carry together as sector. Here’s a big shout out to all the premieres and festivals that can’t take place. This is so very unfortunate. We will never forget 2020.

Quietly, in the background, we are working on restarting and on upcoming projects. Uncertain about when we can get back to it. But with good hopes that after this silence there will be a great longing for coming together.

Whenever it may be. I have patience.

Stay healthy, keep dancing,

Stream our shows on Theaterflix

A night at the theatre online

Enjoy theatre from home on the Theaterflix streaming service. Here you can now enjoy two of our pieces for free: LIEFDESVERKLARING (2014 - i.c.w. Magne van den Berg & fABULEUS) and LIEFDESVERKLARING (voor altijd) (2018 - i.c.w. Magne van den Berg, Het Zuidelijk Toneel & Rudolphi Producties). (A version of LIEFDESVERKLARING with English subtitles can be viewed here!)

It all began with the famous and controversial piece Publikumsbeschimpfung from 1966 in which Austrian playwright Peter Handke bombarded his audience with profanations and insults. Playwright Magne van den Berg and theatre maker/choreographer Nicole Beutler adopted the piece in 2014 and turned it around 180 degrees. LIEFDESVERKLARING (love declaration), a performance with six youths from fABULEUS (BE), was a heart-warming expression of gratitude to the audience.

LIEFDESVERKLARING (voor altijd) is the sequel featuring four highly experienced actors. After a life on stage René van 't Hof, Cas Enklaar, Maureen Teeuwen and Marien Jongewaard examine their intimate relationship with their audience. Thank you for being there all these years!

Theaterflix members get access to a few more of our theatre and dance pieces as well as many others. For only €10 you'll gain access for six months.
