Dutch premiere for Wunderbaum
The latest show by Wunderbaum theatre company will have its Dutch premiere at Boulevard
Another Dutch premiere to announce! This time it’s the company Wunderbaum, frequent and well-loved guests of Theaterfestival Boulevard and its audience.
Last year 101,000 Dutch nationals went on cruise holidays. In March 2017 the members of the theatre collective Wunderbaum also embarked. As part of their preparations for Superleuk, maar voortaan zonder mij (Great fun, but next time I’ll pass) they all took jobs as entertainers at sea. In their wake the audience is drawn into a self-destructive high-performance entertainment culture. The on-board creed: death by entertainment.
A show with deadly precision by Wunderbaum, who have drawn on David Foster Wallace’s essay A supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Nebver Do Again that describes the luxury cruise he went on as the epiphany of contemporary man’s existential emptiness.
Wunderbaum - Superleuk, maar voortaan zonder mij can be experienced without getting your feet wet, but not dry-eyed. 9, 10, 11 and 12 August.
