The Sheep Song
A modern fable about the desire for change.
Duration 1 hour 30 minutes, no interval
Language language no problem
Livestream on the 17th of June
In the leading role: a sheep. This most innocent of creatures is no longer content with itself. It feels it has greater potential, that it is destined for a life more glorious than that of its fellow sheep. It takes fate into its own hands in order to become human, starting with walking upright. All sorts of mythical creatures then cross its path. Some work against it, while others help it along its way. With colourful sets full of fabulous figures, this wordless piece takes the audience on a quest for the human. It is a modern fable about growing up and about the constant striving for more, better and further. At the same time, it is about the fear of inevitable change, in ourselves but also around us. It is a meditation on transformation as a fundamental mechanism of life.

After living in Paris for years, a woman, played by French star actress Isabelle Huppert, returns to the family estate where she grew up with her brother. It is about to be sold because of debts.
Due to its great success, the thriller The Nation is returning to the theatre. The six-part theatre marathon about a mysterious disappearance was written like a Netflix series for the stage: current, witty and full of nerve-racking cliff hangers.
