Uncle Wanja has worked his fingers to the bone for decades for his brother-in-law, an arrogant professor. Because they thought the man’s work was important, Wanja and his niece Sonja ran the estate. So that the professor could deal with economic theories. But the scientist turned out to be a failure and his elitist projects do not exist. Wanja gave his life for a soap bubble. And so he rebels. But society is collapsing around him. Economic and social systems are falling apart. The question is whether Wanja's rebellion against the system will come in time.

Liliane Brakema is an associate artist of Noord Nederlands Toneel. For the first time, she can now be seen at ITA. Her graduation performance De wilde eend was immediately selected for NTF. Uncle Wanja is her main stage debut in NL. She works with existing stage texts, but completely manipulates them with a physical playing style. The emotions arise from the collision between the words and actions of her characters.
