‚Waar rook is, is vuur‘ (‚Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire‘) - Theater Sonnevanck (NL)

It’s in the paper: a girl has suffocated in a container and several youths have been held responsible. The courts believe that the father of the main perpetrator is also partly responsible. By order of the court he now has to go into schools and explain what his daughter did to get across to people how an argument can get out of control.

But why is he speaking without pain or regret? And who is the young girl who suddenly comes in and interferes? It doesn’t take long for a confrontation to erupt between the two.

An exciting play about the thin line between perpetrator and victim, the few steps from friend to enemy and the role of adults.

The theatre group sends two actors into the classroom with a story that could be true. The teacher and one girl from the class are in on the act. All the other school children don’t know that they are part of a play.

The project cleverly plays with content and form. It moves hearts and minds with a theatrical lightness, with depth and love.

The performance (around 25 minutes) will be followed by a discussion.

The performance can also be booked with a theatre workshop following the discussion.
