De Passant

  • Laika

Some people feel at home wherever they are. Others spend their whole life looking, wandering hither and thither, longing for a place to put down roots and eventually come home to. But what exactly is home? 

"De Passant" (The Passer-by) from the Belgian group Laika, is visual, dancing and energetic theatre. A show as as score consisting of individual notes, which gradually harmonize with each other and in the end become music.

After Über-Ich, which was awarded the 2015 Mu-ze-um prize by the Theater Aan Zee youth jury, director Michai Geyzen sets to work again with the same actors, because together they make a fantastic team. 

A non-verbal performance. 

From 6 years

"De Passant" only begins when the escape and the journey is over. A group of lonely men put down their suitcases and thus begins their search for a home. "De Passant" is a physical, visual and motion-based performance that swings between fear of the unknown and the interactions between the men on stage. Live music and with a brilliant wordless performance, life-defining moments are conveyed through fighting, playing and mutual understanding.
