The Underground by NITE , Club Guy & Roni, Asko|Schönberg and HIIIT is a theatre show that feels like a pop concert, transforming the stage into a dazzling visual circus where entertainment and tragedy are never far off. Get ready for a rollercoaster of dance, music, and theatre. Hop in and enjoy the ride.
Guy Weizman turned Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground into an overwhelming theatrical performance. Inspired by the book, Rik van den Bos wrote a phenomenal, topical text, about someone who can’t accept how the world works, and who fails to play by the rules of the game. As a result, he retreats to the margins with all his spiritual richness. A role played masterfully, and with the necessary humor, by Sanne den Hartogh.
Weizman’s work is maximalist. He tells stories through music, dance, text and even the costumes of international fashion house MAISON the FAUX are an essential part of the characters’ personality. You can’t follow everything at once; no worries, you don’t have to. Get in, and enjoy the ride.
