Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2018: Strangers on Stage 

International theater program in Leeuwarden, European capital of culture 2018 

2018 won’t get more versatile than Strangers on Stage. Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie brings top theatre from all over the world to Leeuwarden this year. The productions are sharp and confronting, magical and inspiring, grand, bombastic, small and intimate. Strangers on Stage is a collaboration between Stadsschouwburg De Harmonie, Leeuwarden-Fryslân 2018 and the Nederlands Theater Festival.
 
It must be clear that de Harmonie is very proud of this special program. Strangers on Stage embodies international quality for young and old, for Frisians, Dutch people and Europeans. This is Cultural Capital at its best. This is Destination Harmonie.

Ockham’s Razor Circus | Tipping PointOckham's Razor return with their new show Tipping Point, winner of the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Circus Award at Edinburgh Festival 2016. Tipping Point is set in the round with the audience drawn in close to the action. The five performers are enclosed within the circle of the stage, transforming simple metal poles into a rich landscape of images. Together they face a series of challenges as poles are balanced on fingertips, hung from the roof, swung, lashed, climbed up and clung to, the action veering from catastrophe to mastery.

Tipping Point features a multi-layered surround sound musical landscape especially composed by Adem Ilhan & Quinta who have previously worked with Philip Selway of Radiohead, Hot Chip and Bat For Lashes.

“A contagious lecture performance […] that knows how to dig deep into women’s imigary, sexism and the almost religious status celebrities are given.” – Volkskrant
When we cried confetti | MAN || CO
In between a tangle of garlands, under a sky of disco balls and right in the middle of a pile confetti, life just has to be festive.
 
They want to be asked to dance. They want to slow dance at an appropriate distance. They want to seduce and to be witnessed. The first blown out candles, the confessions of love, the last dance.
  When we cried confetti is a rollercoaster from party to party. A celebration of the life in which the fear to be forgotten threatens to predominate.
