What is meaningful to you?
Five actors on a large, empty stage, without costumes or any surrounding scenery are here to tell us nothing (‘niets’). Nietsis based on the prize-winning novel by the same name, by Janne Teller, about a boy who decides that life has no meaning to him. His classmates try to bring him to other thoughts. They start to make a ‘Mountain of Meaning’, by taking turns in parting with objects that are important to them. The friends try to outdo each other with their sacrifices, but things get completely out of hand. This is a story about peer-pressure and searching for the meaning of it all.
