Club Guy & Roni | Slagwerk Den Haag | Silbersee
The award-winning choreographer duo Guy Weizman and Roni Haver made a performance about freedom of thought, inspired by the groundbreaking masterpiece Naked Lunch by the American author William S. Burroughs. In the 1950s, Burroughs – one of the best known writers of the Beat Generation – accidentally shoots his wife in a drunken William Tell game. He incorporates this event in his later novel Naked Lunch. A book in which he breaks through all the literary codes and writes about the “interzone”, a place where dreams come true, revive hope, but also reveal your greatest fears. For Weizman and Haver this book is a bible for creativity and a free existence. Welcome to the ADHD world of psychotic poetry, banal humor and the credo of our time: I say what I think, so I am.
Dancers and actors from Club Guy & Roni are on stage with the singers from Silbersee and percussionists from Slagwerk Den Haag. With music specially composed for this performance by Yannis Kyriakides and a text by writer and theater maker Oscar van Woensel.
Dancer Igor Podsiadly received the Dutch Swan Award for most impressive dance performance 2014 for his role in this piece.
