Binta is a tough and creative nine-year-old girl. It’s visiting time in the orphanage where she lives. She longs impatiently for her mum’s arrival. As she waits, she takes you to her secret inner chamber in the company of her mate Yoeri.

Young dramatist Aminata Demba has made De binnenkamer van Binta under the auspices of Laika. She has drawn her inspiration from discussions with adults and children who have been parted from their parents briefly or for a long time. She has also talked to specialists who care for children in orphanages. Hanneke Paauwe set out with this material and has written a bittersweet account of how it feels to have to live away from home without your parents. Together with musician Sam Gysel and director Jo Roets, Aminata tells a sensory story about the resilience of children in this complex world. Expect a swirling narrative seasoned with humour, music, and sweet aromas. Decor designers Studio Kuurjeus have designed a sensory cabinet where, after the show, you can learn about the ups and downs of life which parents and children share with each other.

Francesca Grilli‘s SPARKS 2021 is a participatory project based on a simple act: children read adults their future in the palm of their hand, as a hopeful gesture and as a break with the past. The setup is simple; the kids, mysterious. As an adult, keeping quiet is the most important. Be still, surrender to their power, and open yourself to their visions and reflections.

Ode to recklessness in times of absolute safety obsession. No, that’s the wrong word, recklessness.
What is it then? Drive, glow.

A few vinyl discs by David Bowie and a yellow ball are all that Pierre Paul Constant needs to transform loneliness into a refreshing and poetic pop and rock experience.
