Bonkers piece of theatre.
Where on earth did the pigeon come from?
A massive thumbs up from kids!
“If the pacing of the clowning, a strength in its own right, prevents the overall emotional connection from being as powerful as it should be, Oorlog remains a novel and nimble undertaking with surprising poignancy at the best of moments. In short, a worthy opener for the Belfast Children’s Festival.” >>

“Oorlog is a playful worked example, walking through the glossary of conflict, introducing the different phases of battle as well as the fog of confusion and exhaustion that at times can be seen to eliminate clear-thinking and logic. Even the non-physical elements like sounds and language are used to gently teach the entertaining lessons.” >>

Tristan en Kallista “in stitches laughing out loud throughout most of the performance”:
“I think it was really funny. My favourite part was at the beginning when everything was falling over, that was really fun. It was hilarious!”
Tristan, age 11
“I loved it! It’s different from what you’d expect or imagine it. It was actually nice and fun to watch. My favourite part…that’s tough, it was the bird eating the orange, and when they popped the balloon (using a pole through a hole in the wall), and when the guy had his nose bleeding and had the duct tape on (around his whole head).”
Kallista, age 8
“I loved it. Very interesting play. It was very interactive with the audience. I hardly expected anything that happened.”
“I think it’s the best show I’ve seen in a very long time.”
“Funny, really good. So good there could be a part two, that’s how much I liked it.”
“Where on earth did the pigeon come from?”
“It was funny, sad and confusing”
“I liked the way they made all the noises”
“Better than Mac Beth by the National Theatre.”
