Crash course chit chat
Sanja Mitrovic tells me: ”My latest show is “Crash Course Chit Chat” that premiered on the 2nd of April in Theater aan het Spui in Den Haag. We have been touring a lot in the month of April through The Netherlands and next weekend we are at the Festival aan de Werf on the 19th and 20th of May. The show is invited to festivals in Basel, Switzerland in August and will also be shown at Reims Scenes d’Europe Festival in France in December this year.
‘Crash Course Chit Chat’ is and international co-production, a piece for 5 performers from 5 different European countries in search for a common European identity. It is based on the one hand on the performers’ stories about their homelands, families and personal experiences and on the other hand on historical facts, clichés and prejudices relating to nationality. In this new work I continue my investigation of documentary in theatre and focus on the relation between the national and European identity.”
‘Chrash course chit chat’ is on show twice at this Festival aan de Werf, with a debate on European identity following the show at the 19th. Starting point for the debate will be the performance itself. See you there?
