Piling layer upon layer of information and sensations – two contrasting voices, echoing the snatches of half-forgotten dreams, or lives that have crossed.

On the Harmful Effects of Tobacco
1902, The Harmful Effects of Tobacco.
This is the final of the six different versions of the play from 1886 to 1902 which illustrates the transformation in Chekhov’s approach to the revelation of character on stage. Older version was designed to amuse the audience with solely external comic effects. Now, the emphasis has entirely changed and replaced by a subtle psychological analysis of the inner man.
Who is this man? Who is Ivan Ivanovich Nyukhin?
A dramatic monologue which depends on inner rather than outer action of the actor.
2018, Chekhov raises the mirror in front of modern people “have a look at yourselves and see how bad and dull your lives are…Why won’t you do something to change it?”.
World premiere, AstaroTheatro and Inter.Nos Festival present the monologue of Chekhov trying to bridge the mystic world of a man and his real down to earth life. Without being aware we are all preparing for something “big” to come, what might be that? Will it lead us to catharsis?
With Roberto Bacchilega

“How to be Riccardo”
“How to be Riccardo” is a self-written Forum Theatre play that presents the topic of toxic masculinity. The play accompanies Riccardo from briefly before birth until his adult life showing how males are faced with different kinds of pressure and oppression from family, friends and the society on how to “become a real man”. The masculinity as presented to Riccardo recreates the male stereotype which is reinforced in mainstream pop-culture, through different encounters with choices need to be made, and expected to be made following a clear path of manhood.
“How to be Riccardo” is going to be performed for the first time in Amsterdam and was first presented in the Berlin Kuringa Forum Theatre Festival earlier in 2018.What is Forum Theatre?
Forum Theatre is one of the participatory theatre techniques from the Theatre of the Oppressed – created by Augusto Boal. It is referred to a short play which shows a multifaceted situation that a certain group of people is dealing with. The play is performed twice. The first time the main character (the protagonist) is trying to reach a certain goal, but through the oppression he/she faces, the protagonist will not succeed. The second time, the audience becomes a so-called ‘spect- actor’ and as such is not merely a ‘spectator’ anymore. The audience thinks the protagonist should do something different to reach her/his goal and steps forward to replace the protagonist and show what he/she would do in this situation. A facilitator (Joker) enables the communication and reflection between the players and the audience.

DEO KENOSIS: Waiting for Confession
Intern.NosFestival, Amsterdam, NL 22 September 2018
I will be sitting on a chair where you can’t see my face. I can’t see you either. But I can hear you. And I want to hear you. I am here waiting to hear your confession. No matter how much time you want to spend, no matter what you want to say.
I am here to receive your words and talk to you. Only our voices will be heard.
How much do we expand ourselves to “hear” the other?
How much we widen our existence beyond the safety of our closed world?

Company: Tango Now
Dancer, choreography and video editing: Ezequiel Sanucci
A single man, suffering a separation, discovers that he had forgotten himself. Instead of continuing to victimize and blaming his ex-wife for his misfortune, he decides to look for the answers within his heart.
This work deals with the typical theme of the love abandonment tango and in turn gives it a turn that makes it more in keeping with current times, as human beings live today. The drama and guilt give rise to an inner search through which this character who stops looking for love in the person who has left and discover true love for himself. The work uses video images with which the dancer interacts and enrich the scene. The work begins with a film of Carlos Gardel’s film “Cuesta abajo” to continue with images of energy, colors of the chakras and mandalas in movement. The character even talks to himself through video.

Lara_conditional resident_on default explores physical and emotional limitations, external impositions and power control. The dance addresses athletic, risky borderlines between freedom and confinement, presence and presentation, accomplishment and failure, exhaustion and revival. Inspired by female “superheroes” Nadia Comaneci and Lara Croft, the work questions absolute values such as freedom and liberation, embodying passionate inquiry about violence and the explosive potential of human physicality.

El Lamento (The Complaint) by Carlos Trafic
An ironic research inspired by Sophocles’ ANTIGONE in which King Creon is obsessed with the possibility that he will never die and be confronted with his own destiny.
In the original play Creon condemns Antigone, his niece, because she buried her brother Polyneces with honour. Polyneces was fighting against the city of Thebes where Creon was King. Creon forbid to bury him being enemy of the city. The decision of Creon to condemn Antigone to death leads to a series of events that leads to his fall. Deprived of everything: power, family, affection, he wants to die…Trafic picks up this moment with one thought: Because The King did not give the right to respect death. Death forbids him to die. In this case our story starts 2000 years later with Creon alive and complaining…Trafic welcomes the here and now of being on the stage, with a stock of absurdities, asking through the role of Creon, where is the limit between reality and hallucination.
His tools…? The IF of imagination, his shoulders, and sometimes his voice up-side –down.

Op zaterdag 22 september geef ik tijdens het Inter.Nos festival mijn lezing/demonstratie over de heilige, rituele en trance dansen op Bali, dat ik ontwikkelde in het kader van de publicatie van mijn fotoboek “Between Heaven and Earth – Sacred and ritual dance in Bali” op 5 juli jl. De lezing wordt ondersteund door foto’s (andere dan in het boek, natuurlijk), video’s en hele korte live dansfragmenten uit de rituele Topeng Pajegan, het solo gemaskerde dansdrama waarin ik me op Bali specialiseerde.
