International Theatre Amsterdam, Main Stage
1:30, no intermission
A parade and a dog
In an abandoned theatre, several people gather for a memorial service. As with any funeral, everyone has a different memory, image or idea of the person they are remembering. The person who died led many lives and carried many unseen histories. And slowly, multiple voices are heard trying to tell their story. Voices of people who have been rejected, persecuted or forgotten. Yet here they are, alive and kicking. They form a parade of stories, speeches and music: all different in nature and time, but now moving as one, united.
