Word jij onderdeel van de #doorSTROOM?
Een nieuwe STROOMing is ontstaan. Het Parktheater is namelijk altijd in beweging, voor jou en met jou. Beweging genereert energie en dat geven we door in de voorstellingen van STROOM. Een nieuwe stroming voor mensen boordevol ideeën, kritische blik en nieuwsgierige aard. Voor mensen die wat te vertellen hebben. Voor makers die wat te vertellen hebben.
Talentvolle opkomende en gevestigde theatermakers onderzoeken de wereld, doorbreken vaste denkkaders en proberen verschillen tussen mensen te overbruggen. Verhalen die verteld mogen worden in voorstellingen die raken, schuren, verbinden. Bij STROOM zijn jij en ik onderdeel van het verhaal. Na de voorstelling kun je in gesprek met de maker tijdens de MeetUp. Pak een drankje, zoek een plekje en maak je klaar voor mooie ontmoetingen en echte gesprekken. Een speciale STROOM host bevraagt samen met jou de boodschap en motivatie van de maker. Welke inzichten neem jij mee? Ga je met de stroom mee of er tegenin? Wie geef jij inspiratie? Wat zet jij in beweging? Geef de energie door. Word onderdeel van de #doorSTROOM?
STROOM voorstellingen zijn er in de genres theater, dans en jeugdtheater. Je bezoekt een STROOM avond voor de vaste lage prijs van € 15,00 (jeugdvoorstellingen € 12,50).
VlagYousef Gnaoui | LikemindsThu 28 Sep ’23
Vlag is an umbrella term for all the social constructs and systems we take for granted. For invariance, as if it cannot or should not change. The systems are restricted by arbitrary country and city boundaries. In a theatrical, musical and visual performance, Yousef Gnaoui deconstructs our ideas and merges them into a new perspective. Final directing: Marcus Azzini.
Don't wanna touchDOX | YoungGangstersTue 10 Oct ’23

With (un)ease, humor and vulnerability, we set boundaries and collectively break through the walls surrounding touch and intimacy. Are you ready to be touched?
IK...eh ikHet Houten Huis & Nordland Visual TheaterKinderTheaterWeekSun 15 Oct ’23
I've been running into myself too often lately. This morning, I left home on time, but once outdoors, I turned out to be partially still in bed. When I came back in the evening, my left-behind-self had blockaded the door. Through the window, I saw him running through the house. Everything had been turned upside down. The emails from my computer were crammed into the refrigerator, my goldfish were swimming around the houseplants, and my dirty laundry was hanging to dry outside. I saw him quickly slip into a painting on the wall. Now, I'm hiding under the bedcovers, but I know he's watching me…

Sawdust SymphonyMichael Zandl, David Eisele & Kolja HuneckTue 12 Dec ’23

Three obsessed characters take the audience on a unique 'do-it-yourself' experience in which they discover and transform their own workspace and themselves. Sawdust Symphony is an intense dialogue between frustration, euphoria and the smell of petrol.

Wunderbaum speelt live (online gaat het mis)WunderbaumTue 30 Jan ’24
In this performance, Wunderbaum tackles one of the most pressing questions of this century: How much of our time do we want to spend online? As parents and educators, we hear stories of kids taking on different identities in 20 different Whatsapp groups, secretly owning a second phone, and preferring to celebrate New Year's with their friends online in #World of Warcraft#. Or is that all just exaggeration? And what right do we actually have to speak if we regularly find ourselves scrolling and staring at a screen when our child is talking to us?
