kabinet k (B)

Rau (Rauw)

A gang of children balancing on a thin line of joy and struggle in a performance that demonstrates their resilience, hope and idealism. An exercise in standing up to a constant, invisible threat. They develop their own medicine against the chaos of a world that is too big to comprehend, to understand, to control.

Rau is a show about playing, dreaming, pretending, being a child even if it is not possible. It is about growing up in difficult circumstances, seen from a child’s perspective. It is also about the adults that have to take care of them, who are impenetrable, sometimes from close up, but most often from afar.

With live music from Thomas Devos, who like a bard on the battlefield celebrates the courage of the little warriors.
