“ We are all scared of this, so what are we really scared of?”


Have you ever felt like an outsider? Like people can’t really “place” you?  I often feel like I could belong everywhere but also nowhere in this world. Could this be because of my mixed cultural background, my femininity in a patriarchal system or even my neurodiversity?


“I often..I often hate being different…”


What started out as a search for what it means to belong and the need for  human connection turned into a collaborative and immersive performance. The production includes personal stories from the players and director on prejudice, feelings of not belonging and political discussions surrounding identity.


In “In het midden van het midden, van het midden, van het midden, van het midden….” the players invite you to journey with them through the loop of breaking free from social and cultural expectations. Because if we're all afraid of the same thing, what are we really afraid of?


*No Dutch? No worries! The performance is in English.

For both performances there will be a after talk with director & cast.
