Theater Artemis/ Liesbet Swings en Jetse Batelaan
He’s six years old, the boy in the backseat. He’s in tears. “The planet is gonna be wrecked”, Henry Marr from Mount Vernon [Washington] sobs. He has stammered his indictment 281.834 times on YouTube. Jerky images, his mother is filming. Henry’s worry: grownups are destroying our world.
And he is not alone. In Hallo dampkring (Hello Atmosphere) a brave little children’s choir demands an explanation. About felling trees. Air pollution. Global warming. A choir of grownups is held to account. How does a carefully sung apology in A flat sound? An argument in F sharp? Lex Bohlmeijer wrote the lyrics to Hallo dampkring after talking to children on the island of Terschelling. A topical and melodic conversation by Theater Artemis.
There are free shuttle busses available from the festivalsquare to the location of the show. These busses leave half an hour before the show starts.
