Hermit - Babóro

Nun's Island Theatre
 Wednesday, 16 October 2019 09:30 Place: Nun's Island Theatre

Simone de Jong | Netherlands | Theatre

There is a cube. Is it a house?
There is sound. What’s happening inside?
A lid opens. Is there something inside?
What is inside? Who is inside?

‘Hermit’ is a non-verbal physical performance about a mini house and its shy inhabitant. He is not at home, but we do hear him.

Celebrating the joy of discovery, this is a gentle, funny and moving performance about being alone and coming home.

‘…a lovely theatrical treasure for all ages.’ Theaterkrant ★★★★★
