Eva van Pelt | NL
What are you afraid of? What makes you really angry? Where is your sadness, your fear, your joy? Do you ever really listen? Or do you find that too scary? Do they touch you, the words? Eva van Pelt creates NOW: a dynamic improvisation concert featuring spoken word, interview fragments and music, for an audience that can nestle into the questions with answers from people you hear but can’t see. Their questions and answers form the common thread of this concert. A concert about searching, fear, anger and being alone. About the importance of asking the simple questions to those around you that you know and don’t know.
Making genuine contact is scary, it is an active choice to really listen, but you can/may/want to surrender to it. Especially in NOW: a concert where you don't give answers but listen to those of others. It consists of three parts, each of which will be performed at Theaterfestival Boulevard. Each part asks a different question.
