Carrousel


Why do we enjoy watching others suffer

3 Mar 27 May 2017

Keep on going on. Go on until you no longer can. In Carrousel the NNT actors, the dancers of Club Guy & Roni and the Asko|Schönberg musicians will sweep you up in an endless dance marathon in a pulsating dance hall. The stage director Guy Weizman and dramatist and poet Bernard Dewulf wonder why we enjoy watching others suffer during sports competitions, reality-shows, the news, films or theatre performances. Perhaps it’s because one’s own happiness seems a little more within reach if one sees others failing.

Carrousel is inspired by the film and novel They shoot horses, don’t they? about the endless dance marathons in the United States during the 1930s. The result is a captivating and musical performance in which the audience is both observer and participant. For, as long as they keep on watching the eternal dance goes on …

NB the performance is English subtitled and partially English spoken.
