Invited by Frascati to open the new theatre season, Dood Paard & Co present a Play with Food in combination with the production BEROEMDEN by TG Stan, Dood Paard, Maatschappij Discordia and Compagnie de Koe on 14, 15 and 16 September at 18.00.
As introduction, Dood Paard together with a selection of actors from the other ensembles, will read fragments from JOOS by Enver Husicic: a reconstruction, not based on actual fact, of the murder of Anja Joos, kicked to death because she allegedly stole a can of Bestbier. An inner world construction.
Reservation is compulsory and is possible until the day before the performance.
Please note: tickets in combination with Beroemden cost €25 (including meal)
Dood Paard has participated in three editions of Play with Food:
Edition December 2011
Manja Topper took part in Play with Food on 13,14 and 15 December where, together with Judith van den Berg and Janneke Remmers, she read Ik stond in een kutvoorstelling maar m’n haar zat wel heel goed een theatertekst voor twee of drie actrices van de kleine zaal die af en toe ook in de grote zaal staan, (I performed in a crap play but my hairdo looked really great a theatre text for two or three actresses who play small venues but sometimes also a large theatre) a new text by Magne van den Berg in collaboration with Joachim Robbrecht. More information.
Edition November 2011
On 10 and 11 November Kuno Bakker, Gillis Biesheuvel and Manja Topper together with Jeroen De Man of the Warme Winkel and Eva Duijvestein, read two new theatre texts by the writers Hassan Bahara and Vincent van der Valk.
Hassan Bahara (1978), writing under two different pseudonyms, twice won the El Hizjra Literature Prize. His debut novel, Een verhaal uit de stad Damsko (2006) was followed in 2010 by Ik, Driss that he wrote together with Asis Aynan under the pseudonym Driss Tafersiti. For Frascati’s youth festival Breakin’ Walls, Bahara wrote Bloeddorst, a short theatre text in 2009.
Vincent van der Valk (1985) graduated in 2010 as actor from the Toneelacademie Maastricht and, among other productions, has played in two works by Casper VandePutte: Polaroids and Oh my god it’s a horse. In 2011, he appeared in Het meisje dat te veel van lucifers hield, directed by Julie Van den Berghe (Frascati Productions in co-production with NTGent). Vincent van der Valk wrote the short text Toen geluk en ongeluk zich in elkaar vergiste; it was staged at Frascati WG under direction of Daria Bukvic and later toured to other venues. With the backing of Frascati Productions he has taken his next steps as dramatist and spent the summer of 2011 working on a new theatre text.
Edition September 2009
Frascati invited theatre group Dood Paard to read the theater textsONVERDEELD by Rob de Graaf and CUBA LIBRE by Jibbe Willems
ONVERDEELD by Rob de Graaf (1952): a piece about two men and a woman who become ensnared by their mutual relations. De Graaf’s piece has never been read or performed in public in The Netherlands.
Jibbe Willems (1977) established a writer’s laboratory for himself as part of Frascati Productions in the spring of 2009. He asked five dramatic writers he admires for their content, style and dynamism to provide him with an assignment. He worked on each assignment for a week. Five weeks yielded five dramatic texts of which CUBA LIBRE was the last: written in response to Rob de Graaf’s brief for Jibbe Willems.
