The world a thread (co-production with Stichting Maanzaad)

Maanzaad and the Rosa Ensemble presents:

The world a thread

Two people, Heket and Anders, become entangled in a city of threads and cloth. The walls hang from the sky and the houses search for their foundations. They end up in an underground world of dead-end corridors and vaults. Only an occasional basket brings down food and fuel for the lamp.

They are not friends, but under the circumstances they have to make do with each other. They share stories and hope for support from the world above. Heket behaves responsibly so that both of them can survive. Anders seems lazy and has his own thoughts. Will they ever escape?

A violinist and a bass player move freely through the city. Their playing shows – despite the danger – the world and its infinite possibilities.
