Joachim Robbrecht — Der Kommende Aufstand
< OVERVIEW
Der Kommende Aufstand

In 1568, 444 years ago, the Geuzen ('Beggars') freed themselves from the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands. All of a sudden, the citizens were free, just like the market. And the state!

About 200 years later, the German playwright Friedrich Schiller looked back at the birth of the dutch fighting spirit in his play Don Carlos and his historical essay The revolt of the Netherlands. He considered the Netherlands as a pioneering country in the world. Here, things went as they should... Mainly in the last decades, the Netherlands have forfeited that image of role model.

Is this the right time for a new revolution? Or has it already begun? Who would actually be the enemy? Nine actors occupy the theatre in order to prepare for the revolt. Accompanied by ghosts from the past, ideas about the present and visions of the future, they climb the barricades.

Der kommende Aufstand is based on a political essay that appeared in 2007 in french called “L'Insurrection qui vient”. The essay was written by actors that called themselves Comité Invisible. Those texts, but also old Geuzen-songs, Friedrich Schiller's Don Carlos and Monty Python are being used in this performance to enable a multi-perspectival look on history and the actuality of revolutions.
