Female Economy

Iets Zachts about

Désiré, the main character of De Laatkomer, crosses the Styx and drags with her: a tube of toothpaste, for fun. Fall 2014 Adelheid crossed the IJsselmeer and dragged with her: 19 students of the Amsterdam Theatreschool and ritual artist Sebastian Holzhuber. On short mowed grass, they encountered 19 old and wise from the North. Together they spitted at each other memories and translated those encounters in: Something Gentle. This echo of De Laatkomer can be seen in and around the performances in Groningen and Amsterdam.

Mafaalani (NNT) invited Roosen to endeavour her encounter-methods in Groningen for a second time. Four years earlier, they made their first co-production 'Zina neemt de Wijk' (2010) in which the residents of the neighborhoods Oosterparkwijk, Korrewegwijk and de Hoogte where the central figures and adoptes eight of Roosen's actors in their houses. Zina neemt de Wijk was played in De Machinefabriek.

Rosemary, one of the old and wise from the North, said: From 'can you' to 'could you'. Why?
Short mowed grass. To stroll. To flutter. Come, I lay you down.
