Continenten of De Nieuwe Oost and Mart van Berckel
A picturesque, textless play about the madness of routine and daily life. Which secret desires hide behind our facade of daily existence? What happens when the outer appearance starts to crack?
In Continenten we see the lives of two persons on the verge of imploding. A man and a woman try to persist their seemingly perfect lives and daily routines. However, dark and violent desires are seeping through the cracks. In between the four walls of the room the difference between man and beast is a very fine line.
Inspired by movie director Michael Haneke and painter Edward Hopper, director Mart van Berckel and scenographer Vera Selhorst create a magical realistic world with meticulous use of design, light, music and movement. An aesthetic, feverish and sometimes terrifying visual trip blending routine, dream and nightmare.
This play is textless and therefore understandable for everyone.
