Nominated for the VSCD mime award 2014

The day the parrot had something to say for himself (De dag dat de papegaai zelf iets wilde zeggen) is a performance in words about people who parrot each other. A cast, consisting of celebrities only, is practising interchangeability. What is left of us when we cease to speak for ourselves?

 

Fear of living versus lust for life; wanting to be seen, yet wanting to remain invisible. It’s what growing up is all about. In a world in which the most important thing is to be unique, this play is a loving plea for disappearing into each other.

 

The day the parrot had something to say for himself, has been stirring young viewers’ hearts and minds. The show won Jetse a nomination for the VSCD mime award.

 

A show for many ages starting from age 14.

 

Special guest NICO LASKA

 

Directed by Jetse Batelaan

Performance Marijn Brussaard, Esther Snelder, Sieger Baljon

 

 

A captivating show about the road to adulthood.

Annette Embrechts, de Volkskrant****

The fumbling is as appealing as it is volatile. But most importantly, it has an uneasy vulnerability, like in the touching scene in which Sieger Baljon tries to tell his opponent how he is really doing, having dressed down to his birthday suit.

Brechtje Zwaneveld, NRC Handelsblad***

I left the theatre with a deep-felt sense of happiness. Another sure-fire hit from Batelaan, was my immediate thought.

A striking portrait of the insecure, searching adolescent who wants to speak out but doesn’t know where to start or how

The judges of the VSCD award

The day the parrot had something to say for himself is a completely unique entity: a show about repetition that is nothing like any other show, let alone a repetition of other shows.
