Guy Weizman has transformed Dostoyevsky’s Notes from the underground into an overwhelming experience. And Rik van den Bos has written a phenomenal and highly topical script, also based on the book, about someone who can’t accept how the world works or abide by its rules. For all his spiritual wealth, he’s forced into the margins of society, in a masterly and often very funny interpretation by Sanne den Hartogh.
Guy Weizman is a maximalist who uses music, dance, and text to tell stories. Even the costumes from international fashion house Maison the Faux are an integral part of the characters’ personalities. You won’t be able to keep pace with everything that goes on, but no worries, you don’t have to. Just step in and enjoy the ride.
“Guy Weizman has excelled himself, bringing together Den Hartogh’s fiery monologue, the multifaceted music of Asko|Schönberg and Slagwerk Den Haag, Maison the Faux’ exuberant costumes and Ascon de Nijs’ ingenious set.” De Theaterkrant, critics’ choice
- This performance is in English, Dutch, and Russian, with English surtitles.
“Actor Sanne den Hartogh brings the protagonist Will, who turns his back on everyone and everything, spectacularly to life.”
