What can theatre achieve? Everything! It lives by assertion and complicity with the audience. We see a square and a construction site. We hear the voices of …wait a minute! There's something wrong here. A capricious plot unfolds playing with our expectations and ideas of security. A cunning and witty production about reality and imagination.
The Dutch author and director Jetse Batelaan is one of the most unconventional protagonists in a new generation of theatre makers. He is the artistic director of the Theater Artemis and was awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2019.
