In a comical, nonchalant way the creators deconstruct the conventions of watching and making theatre. By emphasising the artificiality of theatre and turning it upside down, this exercise in emptiness verges on life itself.
The kind of production that twists your outlook on the world. Everyday terms obtain a new meaning.
The Dutch collective Wunderbaum is housed in Theaterhaus Jena, a theatre previously run by a theatre collective that commits itself to experimental theatre productions.
For the content of their youth theatre programme, the makers approached Jetse Batelaan and next Friday the first collaboration with Artemis is a fact: the remake of Artemis’ Performance in which hopefully nothing will happen.
Jenaer Premiere 30 November 2019
“…Rarely has a play – a great joy for children from the age of seven, but also for adults – so madly and amazingly unleashed the unstoppable forces of theatre. (…) This is great minimalistic theatre, fantastic and expressively played by the two Theaterhaus actors, who make it clear that not everything always has to make sense, but can still be a lot of fun.”
Next show: Saturday, December 8th, 4 pm
