De verse tijd الوقت الجديد

Premiere date

Selected for the 2019 Netherlands Theatre Festival

De verse tijd is co-produced by Dood Paard and Toneelhuis, Antwerp. The play sees actor theatre-makers Mokhallad Rasem and Kuno Bakker engage in a series of dialogues about their relationship with each other and their surroundings. When two lost souls search for common ground, the result is by turns humorous and painful, poetic and banal. Their conversations combine to form an overarching narrative about two men who, in spite of their differences, want to discover where their lives can meet and enrich one another – and when they can best leave each other well alone. The audience is invited to contribute ideas to this frank exchange on differences, and to take their own position. 

Can’t we just play and not talk about anything?
Can we throw all the words away and start again?
Can’t we just say that’s the way you are, and that’s the way I am?

Kuno and Mokhallad met regularly to delve into one of the themes of the play.
