In 2013 we were invited by Frascati Theater in Amsterdam to organize a Dood Paard Week. It was a big success and we are going to organize it again this year. This is the program:
27 & 29 May at 21.00
FREETOWN by Rob de Graaf (subtitled in English)
with Ellen Goemans, Lies Pauwels and Manja Topper
Your vacation starts where civilization ends
Three women search for affection on faraway beaches knowing all to well that you never get something for free.
28 May at 20.30
Othello (bye bye) by William Shakespeare (subtitled in English)
with Kuno Bakker, Gillis Biesheuvel and Mokhallad Rasem
Dood Paard brings this classic by William Shakespeare dealing with jealousy, love and racism with two actors and one technician. A new translation was created giving it a contemporary feel while remaining very close to the original. This results in an intelligent and bold performance filled with double layers in which themes such as jealousy and xenophobia become uncomfortably apparent.
PS We will perform Othello (bye bye) at the Bourla in Antwerp on 27 May. More information.
30 & 31 May at 21.00
BOTOX ANGELS by Rob de Graaf (subtitled in English)
with Ellen Goemans, Janneke Remmers and Manja Topper
Rob de Graaf, Manja Topper and Ellen Goemans have previously worked together on FREETOWN, now they have created the feminist lesbian relationship comedy BOTOX ANGELS, together with Janneke Remmers. A performance about militant female sexuality in a small community, with lots of sultry dialogue, jealousy and emotional violence. The text by Rob de Graaf will be alternated with performances by female artists from 1964 to 2014.
27 to 31 May
InstallationThe Death and it’s friends
During the week there will be an installation on display by Carmen Schabracq. She designed the tit sweaters for BOTOX ANGELS. Carmen Schabracq (1988) studied at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and she showed her in Mediamatic, De Oude Kerk, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and De Kring.
We will end the Dood Paard Week with a party hosted by DJ Anil and the performance ‘latte di lupa’ by Carmen Schabracq.
Also performed from 27 to 29 May at 22.30
