    Why do we label people as 'normal' or 'abnormal', and what happens when we let go of these distinctions? In Maar niemand kuste mij, Carte Blanche confronts the audience. How do we look at each other, what do we see, and what do we think of that? And what happens when the separation between audience and actors is suddenly no longer clear? An auditory performance in which the prevailing norms about what is normal is questioned (or perhaps radically rejected). Director: Xandry van den Besselaar.

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?

    Sun 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…
