Production house PLEIN THEATER
In April 2019 we launched a new initiative, Production house PLEIN THEATER: THE FREE FLOOR.
This project is conducive to endless variations, limitless excesses, unpredictable performance techniques and, most importantly, everyone can join in!
This season we have invited three unconventional theatre makers, Edit Kaldor, Gita Hacham, and Dayna Martinez Morales to create works during THE FREE FLOOR with people from Oost, who wish to further develop themselves through acting, writing, or dance, based on themes such as alienation and interconnection.
Berith Danse is curator of the yearly “Artist in Resident” programme in the summer. Together with neighbourhood residents and other interested parties, the Artist in Resident is challenged to further develop his or her theatre production.
The four makers have worked all over the world with local people for years. Each one of them possesses unique skills and work experiences. They are capable of inspiring people to shine on stage, making use of social or individual themes. And through their backgrounds they understand what it’s like to be an outsider, to represent a minority, and what it means to maintain authenticity.
In November there will be a presentation of all their work during the PLEIN THEATER ‘Vrije Vloer [“Free Floor”] Festival 2019’.
