IK HAD TOCH IETS MEER VERWACHT VAN EEN AARDBEVING ( I EXPECTED A BIT MORE FROM AN EARTHQUAKE)

“I cycle the same route every day and pass a large intersection with traffic lights, where the cars rush past me. One day I wonder: “What if I decide not to slow down?”

Three firefighters long for disaster. An explosion, an earthquake, a fire, a tsunami or a cat in a tree. So their task is clear and they can finally play the hero. How do they relate to their suits, each other and a world in which everything seems to be under control? Is there still room for an all-overwhelming disaster?

‘I expected something more from an earthquake’ is an absurdistic, physical performance about the role of savior in the 21st century. Rescuers who want to be saved themselves. A performance that longs for the unexpected in our expectations.

This performance is part of Karavaan festival 2022. Join this expedition where you see 3 performances and where food and drinks are part of your evening or afternoon out.
