Alles over iets en dingen en niets

Alles over iets en dingen niets (*Everything about something and other things and nothing) was a play performed at the Preparefestival 2017 in the Amsterdam Theatrehouse. It was about thinking and dancing. About searching a togetherness, but at the same time feeling alone. Why does our generation like to go to techno parties? What are we looking for? We used the play GOD by the Dutch group BOG.

A group of young people, four microphones and a large 3D cube are on the stage. There is a DJ just in front of the audience. She runs live with vinyl and we see the performance over looking her. The youngsters are dancing in the cube. On the rhythm of the music they step out to ask things in the microphones. “Do you want to be alone? What came before the beginning? You know, we can’t actually deny that it is a big mess.” In and out, in and out the cube. Wanting to understand and wanting to escape. The party builds up, the rhythm continues.

It is about searching for meaning, searching for modern forms of religion and happiness. A performance about my own generation, but at the same time so recognizable for those who used to dance all night.
