Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east




Nassim Soleimanpour / Aurora Nova

A story full of blanks, to be completed on stage

Nassim Soleimanpour created with White Rabbit, Red Rabbit a theater performance without set, director or rehearsals. With Blank he takes his artistic experiment to the next level: an unfinished story to be completed live on stage as a collaborative effort of performer, audience, and playwright. Our point of departure: the life story of someone in the audience. Every night, a different actor will perform. In the festival both a Dutch and English version is presented.
White Rabbit, Red Rabbit (premiered in 2011 at Summerworks and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival) was a worldwide success. Amazing actors, amongst others, Jacob Derwig, Kevin Spacey, David Morse and Juliet Stevenson, have performed the play.
