Laundry XL is a street theatre performance by 6 women and a large pile of sheets. Six laundry ladies roam the city and transform it into a world of white laundry. Laundry is the main ingredient for a fleeting drama that passes by. With their tight household the emotions of these fanatical laundry women sometimes go a bit overboard. The performance balances in the realm of dance, theatre and visual art. When you enlarge something ordinary like laundry to extreme proportions, it suddenly becomes interesting and starts to live a life of its own. The spectator is in the middle of this magnified situation: The laundry women make the everyday world disappear, and literally pull the audience into their white world of laundry. Laundry XL opens the senses of the audience: you have to see, sense and experience it. Explore more of Laundry XL on FACEBOOK

SCHEDULE
Roadworks is a very literal form of pop up theater. We like to call it a roadshow. Four road workers arrive at a potential spot with a container full of stuff. Nothing to be alarmed about, except for the fact that they look strikingly similar. They build a barricade, block the road and create an instant stage through signs, traffic cones and striped lines and start to work. Roadworks starts preferably in the middle of the audience, catching them by surprise. Out of all this a performance unfolds.
Multiples is a visual street theater performance. A group of identical office men make their way through the city on their (lunch) break. The men lead the audience on a journey through streets, parks and squares. Multiples zooms in at the absurdities of their existence. But the spectator is the only one laughing. For the men there’s nothing to laugh about. They are lost, fragile and lonely. Multiples gives a voice to this little man. She adds a critical note to everyday mediocrity. A form of street-art that speaks to our imagination and is subject of conversation.

La Cuisine is about how people not only eat because they hungry but also to deal with emotions. Or how food can bring up certain emotions, just by tasting something delicious. Eating can be about love or sharing. In La Cuisine we will perform a depth research about the importance of food in life.
About La Cuisine13 guests get a special ‘mealticket’ and are invited at our table.Two waiters and a cook prepare the courses that are being served.. Ingredients of the meal are, apart from escpecially designed food, a touch of drama, some pints of blood, roasted on a good fire. The guests quell their senses while the kitchen staff is  having a major crisis.  The uninvited guests, the rest of the audience is witness to it all. EndFragment
Primary visual performance elements are dance, theatre, visual art, special effects and live cooking. The set is simple: a long table suitable for 13 guests and a cooking unit. The (pleasurable) experience of our guests enjoying the gastronomy versus chaos and drama in the kitchen department will be at the heart of the performance.
