Heimat ist nicht nur ein Wort
A diorama in which objects are particularly ordered to present a certain reality. A stuffed fox with a rabbit in its mouth. A man repairing something. His wife baking pancakes at the stove. The room contains objects that are typical fort he are. In this museum-like setting we see ‘Western’ people in their habitat.
Suzan Boogaerdt & Bianca van der Schoot, both graduated from the Mime Academy in Amsterdam, founded theatre collective Boogaerdt|VanderSchoot in 2001. They depart from a philosophical and political issue in their creative process, and share their confusion about it with the viewer. With their serie of performances Visual Statements producing: BIMBO, SMALL WORLD, Spectaculaire Voorstelling and Hideous (Wo)men (in collaboration with Susanne Kennedy and awarded with the VSCD Mime prijs), they gained a unique position in the Dutch theatre scene.
