Alleen in Surhuisterveen

a theatrical experience about ‘missing’

Is missing a job less painful than missing a friend? Does missing your freedom as a prisoner hurt as much as missing your home as a sailor? And what if you’re missing an arm, leg or finger? Can you be alone and miss something together?

At a time when the world comes to a screeching and creaking standstill and we are more dependent on ourselves than ever, we discover what it does to us to have to miss all kinds of obvious things.

How does that feel? How does that work? How do you deal with it?

Our jonge onderzoekers take you through personal stories of theater makers, experts and audiences to talk about missing and longing. Come see four solos by young makers. Listen to people who have to do without everything for years. And ask yourself what you can miss. And what you can’t.

The program is corona-proof, can accommodate 30 people at a time and lasts a total of 80 minutes.
