Maker and actor Vincent Rietveld wants to reach beyond the mediocrity of life. Although the trophy cabinet of his collective is starting to get pretty full, Vincent Rietveld does not yet have a single personal trophy to his name. This production is an attempt to change that.

We are born. We live. We die. We slip and slide or fight our way through highs and lows. We bite back our disappointments and count our blessings.  If we zoom in on personal stories, we find adventures, doubts, hard-won developments and a life worth filming. But if we zoom out, it all appears to be nothing but a grey, indistinct, polluting, overpopulated mass in a sea of meaninglessness. There is only one way to extract yourself from the sop of mediocrity: win prizes. 

The Louis d’Or is a prize awarded annually for the most impressive leading male role. The prize is presented in September at the gala of the Nederlands Theaterfestival in the Stadsschouwburg in Amsterdam. The winner receives a gold medal and is immortalised in a portrait hung in the Stadsschouwburg gallery. It is the greatest achievement to which any actor can aspire. 
In Vincent Rietveld gaat voor de Louis d’Or,  Rietveld stakes everything on a nomination.

The production is the first part of a series in which Toneelgroep Amsterdam (formerly De Warme Winkel) investigates overpopulation. What can individuals do about such an immense problem? And how can you defend yourself against a sense of redundancy?
