Some people feel at home everywhere, others spend their whole lives looking for a home, wandering from here to there, dying to find a place to stay and then finally coming home. But what is the meaning of ‘home’? De Passant is an energetic and visual dance & theatre performance, around this question. Something that is on the mind of theatre maker Michai Geyzen a lot. So far, he has moved about 24 times. His parents divorced when he was very young; in turn he lived with his father and his mother, which made him feel more like a visitor than a resident. A passerby who came and went. De Passant is a wordless plea to open your home to another human being – as an extension of yourself. Create a home that screams "welcome."

"Director Michai Geyzen gives the four characters in this wordless performance a cosy bromance, but also mercilessly lets them 'vote someone out' of the house. Or how can you explain the asylum problem to children - by re-enacting Big Brother." 

-De Standaard (Filip Tielens and Wouter Hillaert)

"A mixture of slapstick, dancey acrobatics and lanky playfulness ... a fine piece of visual theatre. "
