Thursday | Flock Festival – Improvised Theatre

PROGRAM OF THE EVENING

Your ticket gives you access to all shows of the evening.

The True North by Flock Festival Cast

Imagine this. The fascinating history of Amsterdam Noord. Combined with top-drawer improvised theatre.

Flock Theatre will take you on a night full of stories from the local archives. You will enjoy a performance starring sailors, welders, ghosts, and people in hiding. And see important moments that happened in factories, swamps, cozy living rooms, and horrible gallows fields.

Reprise of the show directed by Laura Doorneweerd-Perry in 2022

 

The Hero·ine Who Got Lost by Inbal Lori & Gael Doorneweerd-Perry

Hero·ines are brave, beautiful and perfect. They go on quests, they find their calling, the universe itself sends them on personal journeys to full realisation which they come back from transformed. But isn’t trying to be human heroic enough?

Enter the realm of imperfect people, broken life paths, unrealistic dreams and bad choices, in this unscripted play by Inbal Lori and Gael Doorneweerd-Perry. Come witness these made-up lives, laugh at their unexpected destinies and go back home feeling a little better about yourself. If their cowardly human nature makes them hero·ines, what does that make you?

 

Sound Off! by Bemme & Melange

The Impro Duo BEMME&MELANGE from Vienna set out on a new adventure: In „Sound off!“ they enter a world in which spoken language doesn’t matter. Completely without words, immersed in an atmosphere of emotional sounds, the two performers Ursula Anna Baumgartner and Anne Rab step into the unknown for a long-form experience. Get ready for this exciting experiment inspired by audience suggestions, as they ride a rollercoaster of improvised emotion and commotion where only one thing is certain: nothing will be spoken but lots will be said.

More about them:

When Anne Rab and Ursula Anna Baumgartner met for the first time in Vienna, it was love at first scene: they both share their excitement for making up things as they go along – even better if it’s in a physical and fun-filled way. Since 2019 Bemme&Melange have been exploring the world of „Twoprov“: after looking at the world of dreams and nightmares with their first format „Bemme&Melange träumt…“ they are currently on a mission to find out how many words are actually needed for storytelling to be successful. So far, this dynamic duo has brought their skills to the ImproCup Munich, the Würzburger Improtheaterfestival and the Törn Festival in Hamburg. They are thrilled to be a part of the first edition of the Flock Festival and performing in the Netherlands for the first time.

Whatever Anne & Ursula set out to do, with these two you are in for a guaranteed whirlwind of physical comedy, big characters and emotional encounters.
