City 1 and 2

City 1, a performance at Plaza Futura in Eindhoven, in which the idea of “city” is questioned in a comical way.

City 2, on the ninth floor of the President Building at the Franklin Rooseveltplaats in Antwerp, focuses more on the psychology of man in the city.

“The writings of the Flemish philosopher Bart Verschaffelt have become the starting point for ‘City 1,’” he said. “He basically says that according to the understanding most people have of it, the city no longer exists. Partly because of all kinds of new media, our world has become much broader.”

“The actors of JongHollandia live completely in the play they are about to perform. For example, for the diptych `City’ they have lived in various large cities around the world and soaked up real city life. For the lyrics, they were inspired by the great architect Rem Koolhaas (“World=City”), among others. “
