Theater Tol comes to Blauwe Stad - Music and dance at great heights
Theater Tol from Antwerp is a renowned theater company that is invited all over the world. From Australia to Romania and from Canada to Chile. And now the Flemish theater makers are coming to Blauwe Stad. On the 27th of August 2022 they will present the performance Pedaleando Hacia el Cielo ("Cycling to heaven"). In this open-air performance, the audience is immersed in a world full of dance, music, film and acrobatics. And all this at a great height.
Imagine, you're on a square at Blauwe Stad and suddenly cyclists with dancers appear above your head. Behind you, a singer suddenly descends from a great height. A movie passes by. Cyclists ride between heaven and earth...
Pedaleando Hacia el Cielo is a poetic performance that let's the audience drift away to another world. You imagine yourself in another universe, away from reality. And during the performance you will be surprised again and again. All the while you're short of ears and eyes. This special performance tells of people who love each other, but also lose each other again. They want to be and stay together, but the circumstances are not cooperating. They threaten to lose hope, but nevertheless they do not give up. They continue to fight for happiness. Pedaleando Hacia el Cielo is a performance about a world full of longing, homesickness, fantasy, connection and hope. A universal theme that is topical, perhaps more so today than ever.
It is not surprising that Theater Tol was successful all over the world with this performance. And everywhere they performed, the audience returned home hopeful at the end of the evening, with a smile on their face. In short, that is what Blauwe Stad promises.
The performance can be visited on the 27th of August 2022 at Winschoten. Performance starts at 21h30.
