Bambie 20

An hour and a half of nonstop cheering and liberating conflict. 

Anger is ‘a guest who is only welcome under strict conditions’, according to philosopher Peter Sloterdijlk. But it is also a changing, creative, and even heroic force. He who explodes becomes one with their impulses and is momentarily free of doubt.  

In Bambie 20, anger is given free rein, in absurdist, physical magnifications with recognisable traits. The three figures on stage are possessed by rage, and their attacks make for an hour and a half’s worth of nonstop cheering and liberating conflict. They indulge in all possible forms of implosions and explosions; at each other and at themselves, at life and in general, at the newspaper and the interior. 

For around fifteen years, Bambie has made physical theatre that is astounding and poignant. Theatre whereby the actors work up a sweat while their imaginations run away with them. Slapstick can go hand in hand with a poetic choreography. It is theatre that is conceived ‘on the floor’ and shaped by the bodies of the performers. What starts with Big Subjects and Big Emotions, results in wild chases, desperate moves, mock battles, and comfort rituals.
