Vleugels en Rode Sokken 1997

  • previous production
  • next production

In a closed community, six characters live next to each other. Like a machine, they work through a daily routine. Personal passions lead a hidden life in the darkness of the night.
Until an angel arrives for a quiet holiday. You don't need more to disturb the prevailing order. The behavior or merely the appearance of the nonchalant Angel makes away with the regularity of the past.

For some, se has been allowed to come sooner; for others, she wasn't welcome at all.

The Angels herself, doesn't give a shrinkage and passes through  as if se hasn't seen any signs.

De Bond December 1997 1997

The title already awakens curiosity and the curiosity is completely satisfied. The actors play with vigour and punch. The plot is directed by their motions and gestures. The performance keeps fascinating and challenging because the movements are varied and beautiful.

De Standaard December 1997 1997

Mechanically six creatures in black plastic shuffle over the stage. They're a bit uncertain and lost in their world but an angel quickly changes all that. The message he's carrying in his wings: make fun. The sheer pleasure the actors show is theirs and theirs alone.
