What if straightness is just a concept?

The Fool welcomes you! The Fool is the alter ego of performance artist Connor Schumacher. This character has an open-minded approach, no matter what situation he finds himself in. The Fool is like a human robot. He can move, he can speak, he can make jokes and he will gradually change your perspective of things. He will awaken both body and mind. On this occasion he will reflect on the Groninger Museum’s architecture during a guided tour. You’ll never have seen the building from this perspective before!

Jonge Harten presents theatre makers who aren’t just good, but often young and unknown.

That is why there is a viewing guide to help you make a fitting choice from our extensive programme.

But pay mind: the viewing guide doesn’t deal in absolute truths. It doesn’t say that a performance is funny. Because how you experience a performance is a subjective thing and what you find funny, someone else might find tragic. That’s (and maybe also to safeguard ourselves a little bit) why you should take the viewing guide with a pinch of salt and use the viewing guide to get an idea of what possible effects the performance may have on you. We have identified four of these effects and each performance is marked with the icon of the effect we think will be the most fitting. And sometimes a second, as a side-effect.

#thesensorial

People will say they ‘watch’ theatre, but what about our other senses? Is watching all we do? What do you feel, smell or hear? We’d like to know. What happens if you fool around with your senses? What happens if you switch a number of senses off, or if you intensify others? Performances filed under  #thesensorial will awaken your senses! They will encourage you to experience the world in a different way. Which sense will you start off with?

#thesocial

Theatre isn’t always ‘fun’ (although our programme always includes a number of ‘fun’ shows), but all our shows offer food for thought. Our performances might make you feel uncomfortable, as they reflect the world in all its different shades. We challenge you to form your own personal view of the world. For us, taboo topics are the new mainstream. We would like to know what you think about certain topics that we believe are very important. This doesn’t always lead to an uncomplicated conversation, but we might get to get to know each other better afterwards. These shows are indicated by #thesocial.

Kom je er toch nog niet helemaal uit? Geen nood: stuur een mailtje naar info@jongeharten.nl en vraag om nadere toelichting. Vermeld de titel van de voorstelling en waar je graag meer duidelijkheid over wilt hebben (is dit iets om met mijn vriend/vriendin naartoe te gaan? het is misschien wel grappig maar toch niet vulgair? dat soort vragen). De programmeurs van het festival geven je dan persoonlijk het verlossende antwoord!
