Gershwin Bonevacia

An ode to the fearless self. Gershwin Bonevacia searches for his ten-year-old self, ‘Gush,’ in Terug naar Prinsenplein.

Who was Gush, how did Gush contribute to Gershwin, and what is the origin of the emotional distance that has emerged? During this exploration, Gershwin, as an adult, encounters various traumas, skewed relationships, and taboos.

Terug naar Prinsenplein


Terug
naar Prinsenplein is an exploration of the past, family ties, and childhood. At the same time, it pays tribute to the fearless inner child while striving to rediscover that aspect within Gershwin as an adult.

Gershwin Bonevacia is a poet, writer, and performer. From 2019 to 2022, Gershwin served as the City Poet of Amsterdam. He self-published his poetry debut Ik heb een fiets gekocht in 2017, turning it into an underground classic. In 2021, his second poetry collection, Toen ik klein was, was ik niet bang was released by Das Mag, and he translated the children's book Zo klinkt verandering by the renowned American spoken word artist Amanda Gorman. In 2022, Gershwin was one of the writers for 3PAK. Terug naar Prinsenplein marks his first solo theater production.
