Nick Deroo /Theatre/
Presenting ”It really hurts when your head hits the concrete”
A man drags his companion around like a rag doll; a 70 kilo body tethered to him. Lost and looking for the way, he deploys the rag doll as a living Swiss army knife. Tap on his head and water comes out, climb on his shoulders to look around. But what if your companion no longer wants to play along?
“It really hurts when your head hits the concrete” embodies in a humorous and poetic way how we all carry our history with us. In this physical performance you are immersed into an absurd world in which the internal struggle of a man becomes personified. Expect a deluge of images that reads like a poem and takes you to virtuosic acrobatic highlights.
This performance is a work in progress from his collective DeRonde/Deroo.
Nick Deroo is a theatre maker, performer, and poet whose work starts from the carnality of our existence. He draws inspiration from the ultimate vulnerability and beauty he believes bodies harbor. For him, the body contains a collective identity because in it lies the core of destruction, comfort, and connection. His work has a strong philosophical component, with themes such as melancholy, liminality, and altruism.
