Comfortzone-Orkater-ViaBerlin-RegazzaQuartet-15Photo: Ben van Duin

Last Saturday was the premiere of our new music theatre collaboration with Via Berlin and Orkater: Comfortzone!

After the trilogy with the overall theme war (awarded with the Charlotte Köhler prize in 2014), Via Berlin is now making a series of performances about illegality.

Composer Peter Adriaansz (winner of the Matthijs Vermeulen prize 2015) composed new music especially for Comfortzone, where the relation between text and music takes a central place.

A group of women is trying to get a grip on todays confusing times. A woman who has a visionary philosophy about the future takes them in. But when there suddenly appears a refugee in their midst, there seems to be an irreconcilable gap between the wonderful future and the unexpected present.

The women project their prejudices, fear, despair and good intentions onto the uninvited guest, but hereby loose their grip on the situation completely.

Comfortzone will tour throughout the Netherlands untill the end of October. We hope to see you at one of the following dates!
