INVITED (8+)
Ultima Vez & KVS / Seppe Baeyens / Lieve Stad,
From €15 - €26

How can you let the audience participate in a choreography? With the dance performance INVITED, Seppe Baeyens is trying to answer this question. With dance as a common language he seeks an alternative way of living together and thus establishing a community with dancers and audiences.

Grote Zaal:

Duration 1h

“The way in which the makers involve their audience in the action makes the performance ground-breaking.” - Knack

Since 2011, dancer and choreographer Seppe Baeyens is closely connected to Ultima Vez. Under the wings of the company of Wim Vandekeybus, he created his first large-scale dance performance Tornar in 2015 with an intergenerational cast of non-professional and professional dancers. Tornar won a lot of praise at home and abroad and was selected for Het Theaterfestival 2015. Now we show his latest work: INVITED

INVITED consists of a diverse group of performers from different generations that reflects the society of today. Thanks to the decor, a blue, woven rope sixty metres long that winds across the stage, the distance between audience and players is reduced: the audience plays an active role and gets the chance to take matters into their own hands.

A performance for young and old.

Lieve Stad,

Lieve Stad is het stadsfestival van Internationaal Theater Amsterdam. Lieve Stad gaat over de stad Amsterdam en alle soorten Amsterdammers die de stad rijk is.

Tijdens dit festival gaat het om het samenbrengen van mensen, in de stad, in het theater, in de maatschappij. Hoe leven we samen en welke verhalen dragen alle individuen en groepen met zich mee? De verschillende groepen in de samenleving hebben ieder hun eigen verhalen, sterke kanten, uitdagingen. Dit laten zien is het uitgangspunt van Lieve Stad.

Het festival – geïnspireerd door de woorden van voormalig burgermeester Eberhard van der Laan is – ónze liefdesverklaring aan de stad Amsterdam en haar inwoners.

De officiële opening van het festival vindt plaats op Valentijnsdag, donderdag 14 februari, met de première van de nieuwe voorstelling van Nasrdin Dchar: JA. Hierin neemt Dchar ons mee achter de schermen van zijn aanstaande huwelijk, in de voorbereidingen, het samenstellen van de gastenlijst, het menu en alle vragen die daarbij komen kijken.

In de nieuwe swingende voorstelling Celia! van Urban Myth ontmoeten twee Cubaanse iconen elkaar: Celia Cruz, vluchteling uit Cuba en Queen of Salsa, en Celia Sánchez, een heldin van de Cubaanse revolutie en de rechterhand van Fidel Castro. In de loop van drie ontmoetingen, en begeleid door de klanken van veel swingende salsa en de nostalgische muziek van de Buena Vista Social Club, komen de verhoudingen op scherp te staan.

In onze reeks Sign of the Times lezen acteurs van ITA oude en nieuwe theaterteksten en gaan we in gesprek met internationale denkers en doeners. Tijdens Lieve Stad zetten we ons thema van dit seizoen, woede, door naar onze maatschappij en stad.

De Indië Monologen is een unieke theateravond met wisselende combinaties van gasten en met Nederlands-Indië als centraal thema. Bijna twee miljoen Nederlanders hebben een Indische achtergrond. Hoe werkt die geschiedenis door in ons land, en in onze levens? En hoe willen we ons tot die geschiedenis verhouden?
