About the performance

ECHO is a black-comic one woman show about a mother without a mother: Anna. The performance begins with an intimate autobiographical story, to then develop into devastating and poignant fiction. A universal reflection on life and death, on human roots, overpowering fears and the circle of life.

At the time that Anna Schoen plays this performance, she is 41,5 years old. The same age as her mother when she was diagnosed with cancer. She did not yet know that it would be her death sentence. Now Anna is a mother herself and the day is coming when she will be older than her mother was. The audience is a witness to this day. The day when everything can collapse, but also the day when everything breaks open and presents itself anew. The performance is an ode to the imagination and to courage. An ode to life and with that, an ultimate reckoning with death.      

Anna decides to stay in bed on this day. She muses on that one ugly blue toenail. She contemplates spitting on the electric ‘bakfiets’ of that ‘%$#@%^’ at Kobie and Maxie’s after school care. About her father. About her puppet farm, and how it suddenly disappeared. She thinks about Jos. About the death of her mother. About her own death and what she had wanted to do with her life.

After the performance there will be an aftertalk in Zoom with Anna Schoen hosted by Evita de Roode.

Music

The music by the Eef van Breen Group is the foundation of the performance and represents the world around Anna. The circumstances over which she has no control, such as the death of her mother. Anna tries, as we all do, to manoeuvre through these circumstances/life. Sometimes by going with the tide, sometimes by directly opposing it. But music, time, the world move on and follow their own causality and logic.

Change the game

Wat als onze maatschappij een gigantischschaakspel was, met een koning, rebellerende pionnen en dames diemigreren van een ander bordspel, bedreigd met uitzetting? Een multidisciplinair theaterstuk dat de zwarte en witte paden volgt van een politieke thriller.

The future is not what it used to be

Panama Pictures vervlecht dans, acrobatiek en live muziek tot een meeslepende mix. Ze tonen het verlangen van de mens om samenhang te creëren in een gefragmenteerde wereld, om het verleden niet te verliezen, om grip te krijgen op de toekomst en op te gaan in het moment.
