• Floor van Leeuwen / TENT / Veem

    • language no problem
  • In this first production by theatre-maker Floor van Leeuwen (Schwalbe, among others), 16 performers spend 2 hours moving towards the back wall of a theatre. With a light step, but also with determination. Some are young, others quite a bit older. Others still, somewhere in between. Each performer runs, steps and jumps at his or her own pace, but above all in unison with the others – in a collective rhythm, as a single billowing body. Along the way, a polyphonic conversation between man and wall unspools. We, the audience, see the wall and the backs of the performers. We hear the rhythm of their feet.We feel the energy of the group. Sometimes wild, sometimes calm – but always with the same sense of determination.

    MUUR is not so much a tragic metaphor for the smallness of man as a joint attempt at hope in the face of what threatens to take away our courage.

    Floor van Leeuwen creates and performs with theatre collective Schwalbe, part of Theater Rotterdam and winner in 2014 of the BNG Nieuwe Makersprijs [New Makers’ Award] for their production Schwalbe zoekt Massa. Floor also performs in Lotte van den Berg and Boogaerdt & van der Schoot’s Third Space, she directed Rare Birds by Un Loup pour l’Homme and has previously worked with theatre-makers including Tim Etchells and Lucas de Man.
