het Theater Festival

“An enchanting story, told by a cast that nearly blew the roof off, staged in a set revealing one
visual surprise after another.”



Studio ORKA

51º north latitude, 3º east longitude, the most fragile place on earth everything is sinking away, nobody knows why.
and in this no man’s land, a pub where people rarely pass by but those who do, wish to stay.
because everything can be simple, just what it is.
sometimes very special, sometimes plain and simple.
in that pub you can laugh about things nobody laughs about you can dance – foot by foot.
You can sing, out loud and exuberantly.
Or become silent.

SUMPFLAND offers comfort to those who, at all costs, try to stay upright,
While the earth below their feet is turning into a soggy swamp.
SUMPFLAND is about willpower, energy, about longing to achieve and never giving up.
About how to comfort someone.
About dreamers, fighters and way too hot beer.
