Hebben of Zijn [2003]

Four actors set to work in two duos with different theater text: Le Square by Margueñte Duras on the one hand, A bed full of sofi uirn by Oscar van den Boogaard on the other. Dialogues that can wreak havoc.

The first text is an asexual conversation between an elderly man and a young woman on a sofa in a public space.

The second text is a tough confrontation between two ex-lovers who only see each other again after the painful breakup. All pin points are immediately addressed, but also the intersecting lack. Theater OnderHetVel brings the four characters together, and uses them as a mirror to investigate how we deal with the material things of ferret life, and what the price is of our dreams. The performance could cause a shock of recognisability. The characters are allegano characters, they follow their destiny with unlikely consequences.

I wanted to create an other space in the theater space. To be so close to the actor in a space where everyone can see each other. To be in the middle of the ping pong conversation.
