Following on from the success of Johannes Passion for de Ij-Salon, I will be re-staging Stabat Mater, Pergolesi, that will be performed at the Muziekgebouw aan t’ij on September 28th 2019.
De Dans Ontsprongen
On May 4th 2019 we premiered De Dans Ontsprongen as part of Theater Na de Dam’s many performances around the Netherlands. Due to an overwhelming demand for tickets we will do two more shows at Carré Amsterdam on November 9th & 10th.
This theatre piece is inspired by the story of holocaust survivor, Edith Eger, the ‘ballerina of Auschwitz’, who as a sixteen year old had to dance for the ‘Angel of Death’ Josef Mengele. This performance explores the relationship between perpetrator and victim, bringing their stories into the present- lest we forget.
De Dans Ontsprongen is performed by dancer Igone de Jongh & actor Pierre Bokma
