Join us for an art experiment: Cadavre Exquis + Meet and greet!

Kassys (NL) presents Cadavre Exquis in collaboration with Nature Theater of Oklahoma (US), Tim Crouch (UK) and Nicole Beutler (DE/NL).

A Cadavre Exquis (exquisite corpse) is a poem (or drawing) written by several poets, without knowing what the others have written. The first writer composes a line of poetry on a piece of paper. He then folds the paper so that only the last word is visible. The second writer continues, guided (or not) by that last word. The third writer follows and so on.

Four international directors/ theater makers took a challenge together to create a cadavre exquis. The rules of this experiment are:

1. Each director makes a part that is maximum 15 minutes.
2. As a starting point each director only sees the last 60 seconds of the previous part.
3. Each director brings in one performer.
4. With these four performers each director works two weeks.
5. To prevent influence during the rehearsal period the performers had a ‘pledge of secrecy’ about the previous parts.
6. Everything is permitted: the set may be changed or even destroyed, extras can be added, a dance performance can suddenly become a film or the other way around. As long as there is a reaction on the last minute of the previous part.
7. Cadavre Exquis has 5 parts, presented in the order they were made by Kassys, Nature Theater of Oklahoma, Tim Crouch, Nicole Beutler and Kassys.



The show will be in Englis and will be presented at Theatre Kikker. After the show there will be the meet and greet: our group will have the possibility to discuss the experiment with the directors and performers!
Please RSVP, and you will receive an email which will entitle you to a group ticket with one free consumption, and will give you access to the meet and greet after the show.

      It was the email in which i asked for your phone numbers, but if you registered yesterday, you probabily didn't receive it. Our names have been given to theatre kikker and your name is on the list so it should be fine.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
