CORONA MEASURES


After the government's decision on October 23, we will honor the additional measures to help containing the coronavirus. Therefore, we are reducing the number of available seats in our auditoria. In soing so, we can keep two seats free next to each bubble and leave a row empty in front of and behind you. We are still investigating whether we can move the show to our main theater.


Moreover, we had to pauze rehearsals as a precaution, due to a possible infection with the virus. The good news is that the rehearsals will resume on Monday 26.10. Because of that the try-outs  and the premiere will be postponed. We are looking for a new date and will inform you as soon as possible.

A killjoy is a person who deliberately spoils the enjoyment of others. In this creation, Luanda Casella uses the killjoy figure as someone who is ready to denounce violence, even when that requires creating discomfort. In Killjoy Quiz, the pleasant predictability of a television quiz gradually gives way to a much tougher thought exercise.

Participants answer questions. Points are handed out. But what is the meaning of winning a quiz? One might know things about the world, but not necessarily understand the complexities behind the facts one knows.

Killjoy Quiz subverts the idea of scoring points on knowledge by proposing a game where learning how to enter into dialogue is the ultimate goal. Words are powerful and eloquence is a weapon. The cunning multiple choice questions in this production will mercilessly expose a number of our preconceptions.

Luanda Casella is a Brazilian writer and performer trying to rescue the art of storytelling from its mediatised doomed destiny. Blending rhetoric with irony, her work exposes language constructions, exploring unreliable narration in fiction and in everyday communication processes.

Her work has been shown in venues and festivals around the world such as Spielart (Munich), Edinburg International Festival, Het TheaterFestival (Gent), Kaserne (Basel). With her last solo piece Short of Lying she won the Sabam writing prize at Theater aan Zee (TAZ Oostende).
