Paragraph 1 of the Dutch Arms Act states it is illegal to carry a weapon in public roads or in any place that is open to the public. Which poses a problem for Nick Livramento Silva, Joey Schrauwen and the four other performers. Because the power of their words equals the sure fire of a riot gun. And to make matters worse they are also carrying toy guns so they can decide their improvised rhyming contest in their own favour. They are fast, unpredictable and firmly rooted in the here and now. And they know how to find the words that hit home hardest to capture it. A theatrical trap? It is, and they set it for themselves. They walked into it with eyes wide open in 2017. 

Performance: Said El Abboudi, Ioana Tudor, Lucien Rentmeester, Jurrien van Rheenen, Nick Livramento Silva, Joey Schrauwen
