Suddenly there are fewer stars in the sky. In groups of four, five they have come down to see Citizen K. It’s quite understandable, because Sadettin Kirmiziyüz [1982] touches the soul and hits a raw nerve. Key question in his solo: how come identity has become something so all-encompassing today? Trying to find the answers, Kirmiziyüz dissects his own identity. Is he a Turk? His last name would suggest it. But what does ‘Kirmiziyüz’ mean for his four-year-old son’s future? And why is the Netherlands falling apart? Going down his 254-point list, Sadettin revisits his life and modern Dutch history in a rollercoaster ride with multi-instrumentalist Kaspar Schellingerhout for company. Sadettin is the creator of the highly praised Somedaymyprincewill.com.

Concept, text and performance: Sadettin Kırmızıyüz
