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.

YOUR VISIT TO ITA DURING HOLLAND FESTIVAL

Like ITA, the Holland Festival adheres to the current corona measures, as drawn up by the RIVM and the Dutch government. As long as the coronavirus is not yet under control, testing can help to step by step make more possible. The national government wants to use testing for access in order to facilitate social activities in a safe way.

In concrete terms, this means that in order to gain access to the performances taking place at ITA during the Holland Festival, in addition to your admission ticket you must also be able to present a negative test result in the form of a QR code in the CoronaCheck app.

This works in the following way:

  • You make an appointment via 'Testen voor toegang' and get tested within 40 hours before the start of the performance.
  • You will receive an e-mail with the result of your test.
  • If you do not have Corona, you will receive the negative test result.
  • You can then use the app CoronaCheck to turn your test result into a test certificate.
  • This certificate takes the form of a QR code.
  • You have this QR code scanned at the entrance of ITA.

Please note: only test results that are scheduled via Testen voor toegang are accepted for access.

On the Testen voor toegang website you will find an extensive FAQ section.
