“A dazzling, grand performance that gives the word ‘theater’ all the shine it can have” wrote the Dutch theater jury about Salam.
The performance was selected for the best eleven performances of Dutch and Flemish soil in the 2017/2018 season. Every reason to play Salam again, after a successful tour in the spring, this time on the podium of honor of the Dutch Theater Festival. The performance can be seen for the very last time on Sunday 9 September at the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam and Tuesday 11 September at the Stadsschouwburg Groningen.
All great tales start off with a small tale, virtually all global conflicts begin with disappointment or pain. With ever-increasing tension between the West and the Arabic world, between Islam, Judaism and Christianity, the Noord Nederlands Toneel, Club Guy & Roni and Asko|Schönberg take the audience back to where it all began: a father who did not know how to show his fatherly love and two brothers who were driven apart from each other. The story is that of Abraham, played by Jack Wouterse. In this production, director Guy Weizman traces major religious and social conflicts back to human tales of love, regret, jealousy and pain.
