It's touching to see the actors completely submerged in their roles, and stopping only when the music forces them to do so. It's an honest play, full of intricacies made up on the spot.

Tussenbeide is simply a very good performance with gripping images and aesthetisizing peripetaia. I've rarely seen a performance of this easy fluency. The actors radiate selfconsciousness, they know exactly what they have to do and what to expect from their co-actors, showing an extraordinary love for the theatre and for each other.

Tussenbeide is a performance about the shifting borders between reality and fiction, between what is 'normal and usual' and what is 'strange'. The confrontation of light, mirrors and repetitive music makes for an extraordinary kind of theatre. A metaphor that strikingly questions the so called normal point of view.
