Blowing

Blowing
Blowing is an explosive farce, upgraded for the YouTube generation. Tom and Jessica are not prepared to play along with their mum's pretensions any more. they are taking power back because soon they'll no longer be able to distinguish between fact and fiction. This blisteringly funny look at how adults condescend to children is by one of the most talented playwrights in the Netherlands

Burn My Heart

Synopsis:
Two boys lives are changed forever, as their friendship and loyalty are blown apart by fear and betrayal. Set during the Mau Mau uprising in 1950s Kenya and the ensuing bloody State of Emergency, Burn my Heart examines themes of terror, division, and freedom. Burn my Heart is based on the novel by award winning writer Beverley Naidoo and adapted by translator and playwright Rina Vergano. It uses African and European music and movement styles through a powerful mix of text, compelling storytelling and physical theatre, to tell this fast-paced, devastating, and highly relevant story.

Notes:
Adapted by Rina Vergano from the novel by Beverley Naidoo

Iphigenia

Synopsis:
It is prophesied that the daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra is to be sacrificed to pacify the gods and bring fortune to the Greek army. Iphigenia - 'strong-born' - is bought to her Father to complete the sacrifice. In this beautifully straight forward and lyrical reworking of Euripides' tale, we see how even the most powerful of families will unravel under the pressure of Fate.
