Toneelhuis & Ro Theater (Olanda/Belgio)
An agonising and violent cult theatre piece performed around Europe, the Toneelhuis & Ro company’s work is based on Bezonken Rood by the dutch writer Jeroen Brouwers, considered one of the masterpieces of contemporary dutch literature. Based on the writer’s experiences in a japanese concentration camp during the second World War, where he was interned at the age of three with his mother, sister and grandmother, Sunken Red is an elegy to the shattering of a life under the weight of a childhood of war and imprisonment, given voice by the extraordinary Ddirk Roofthooft.
