      DO NOT LOOK BACK WITH REGRET

    • language no problem
  • Pandemics have been the pressure cooker for change throughout history. Amid the whirlwind of events in the here and now, DO NOT LOOK BACK WITH REGRET by director Davy Pieters invites you to reflect on grief.

    Last year, we were confronted with our mortality: with lives that ended, with a world that is no longer the same and, above all, with the insight that some things must end. How do we say goodbye to those who came before us? Or to a world we have to leave behind? How do we proceed after that? Grief offers us the opportunity for a new life in a changed time.

    DO NOT LOOK BACK WITH REGRET takes you through a grieving process, where two women say goodbye to each other during a snowfall. They realize that an end is near, now they have to deal with it. Expect a poetic performance that is both universal and alarming and in which theater, mime and performance are framed by the music of Jimi Zoet (URLAND).

    At Theater Rotterdam, Davy previously made The Unpleasant Surprise and How to Build a Universe; the first was selected for The Venice Biennale in 2018, along with How did I die, and How to Build a Universe was awarded the prestigious VSCD Mime Prize in 2019.
