From the creative minds of movement director, Fleur de Thier and artist, Simon van der Sluijs comes 'Requiem', a theatre experience for 12 dancers, 13 puppets, one musician and a poem in an act of remembrance. With 'Requiem' we remember how life has forever changed in the last decade as a result of the quakes, the first terrorist attack and COVID-19 and that a new, resilient human was required. 'Requiem' starts and ends with a party and visualises what happened in between. Presented by Rebound Company with the support of musician Lizzy Cook and actrice Mary... and with musician Nicole Reddington playing live on stage, this promises to be a performance which will stay with you well after the show has ended.
