The Wall / De Wand

The Wall / De Wand, Tour Netherlands, The Netherlands
6 t/m 6 February 2016
THE WALL is a visual performance about the primal power essential to survival. Life on the hill is both dark and daunting, mild and sweet. Together with a few animals, she’s getting better and better in holding her life together. Eventually, she’s creating a new world with renewed values and a new feel to life.

THE WALL is performed by Harriet Stroet under direction of Ulrike Quade, written by Hannah van Wieringen, inspired by Marlen Haushofer’s novel The Wall (1963). In this visual performance the puppets are creating the memory of survival.

A tale about man and nature

I stick out my hand; I am perplexed
Slippery cold resistance in a place
Where nothing exists but air

An apocalyptic disaster overwhelms a woman in the hills. An invisible wall separates her from the rest of the world. In a fraction of a moment her existence has been brought back to the fundamental need of survival. Slowly she realises she is the sole survivor. Her journey to discover this new world order starts.
