HINTERLANDS - Heart of lightness (RERUN!)

by Ko van den Bosch.
Translation: Herman Duchenne
Director: Arne Sybren Postma

Our succesful production of Ko van den Bosch' play Achterlanden - Heart of Lightness will have a rerun in Delft, Leiden, Rotterdam, and The Hague!

Het Homerostheater has for the first time translated a modern Dutch play in English.

Hinterlands – Heart of Lightness is about an expat couple in Africa. While he leaves every day for work in his Enhanced Safety Mercedes-Benz, his wife stays in the air-conditioned villa as a victim to absolute boredom, afraid of the jungle and the savages... They kill time drinking, debating the situation in Africa, and the question whether to help the wounded native on the driveway, or to run over him. Then, she decides to invite the man in…

Ko van den Bosch, Dutch playwright, actor and director, is well known in the Netherlands for the vibrant performances of Alex d’Electrique. It has been called the rawest Dutch theatre company, making anti-theatre with an iron logic, set in absurd multiverses.
