Vergeten (Forgotten)

Vergeten (Forgotten) might best be described as an indeterminable journey through the mind of someone with dementia. The Dutch actor Arjan Ederveen, whose name is currently celebrated throughout Belgium, confronts the audience with the uncomfortable reality of dementia.

The texts are written by Spinvis, the hugely popular polymath who never shies away from the great human themes, taboo or otherwise. Where words are simply inadequate, music steps in: the performance is driven by a haunting musical selection from the contemporary choral repertoire. The Nederlands Kamerkoor (Netherlands Chamber Choir) has already been performing on the global stage for almost a century and relishes the opportunity to venture into this experimental terrain. Immerse yourself in a truly moving project in which creative figures of all stripes connect in a melting pot of theatre, music and dismay!
