The Netherlands is up for it: a rage stage for seething music theatre! Because anger fans the flames of vigor and it is the engine for change, Karlijn Hamer proves.


Location Zuiderpark/Tent Paars
Running time 40 min.
Genre Musical theater

I'm looking for more adrenaline, more danger, more decisiveness, a higher heart rate', says musical performer and theatre maker Karlijn Hamer. She will certainly succeed in this, in her musical theatre performance Kiss the earth, you scum. Because there is a lot to be pissed off about. But is that allowed? Or more precisely: can women and minorities? Karlijn Hamer enters into a dance dialogue in a musical installation of angry slogans, rhythm, music and movement. Throw yourself into her moshpit and experience the collective outburst of rage. It's a relief, isn't it?
