Wild Game Unchained 2015

The young protagonist wants to leave home. He is encouraged by the conversations with his invisible friend Crow and his wise words. Full of expectation, curiosity and optimism, he sets forth into the wide world.

In 2015, choreographer Jasper van Luijk created a version of Crow for adults on Oerol. The press: "A moving dance duet (…) The tender play is touching" (Cleeft). The dancers almost appear to have wings at some points (Theaterkrant). In 2017 he created a version for the whole family, in which he wraps around the desire to fly in energetic dance.

Play It Back
Inspired by the woods, Nastaran Razawi Khorasani explores the fake and the real. Surrounded by the real nature of the forest, she plays something artificial, the fake version that people make of real nature. Well, the onrealistic, romantised nature that exists in her city-influenced imagination. Think of heavy thunderstorms, tropical rain, the sound of parrots and waterfalls. She playbacks familiar popsongs that refer to nature with fake flowers, animals and forest wallpaper in the back.

“Khorasani has a great sense of humour and puts engagement into her work” Theaterkrant, “An amazing trip by an acting sensation with an unbridled imagination.” Cobra, “An ingenious show packed with improvised special effects and slapstick performances.” Cleeft

From 2017 to 2020 the talented Nastaran Razawi Khorasani created three more pieces at Maas: Solo by Nas & Jimi, Uniform and Bye Bye Baby. Nastaran received a Golden Cricket for most impressive stage accomplishment for her role in CASH by Maas Theatre and Dance in 2014.

The Silent Twins
'We are twins and we are alike in everything. In the way we look, the way we think, feel and remain silent. We have decided never to talk with others again. Why should we, we are content with each other and with the game that we play. Day after day. The game is: who keeps up the longest, always together. One thing has to be clear for a start: nobody really knows us. You don’t know what is going on inside us. We don’t keep each captivated. We are not dependend of each other. None of us the boss or the leader. So it’s best that you don’t interfere with us. We don’t interfere with you either.'

Anne Fé de Boer and Lotte Rischen created this thrilling performance based on The Silent Twins by Marjorie Wallace. “Two terrifying sisters in white dresses knead four spectators into living puppets” De Standaard, “The girls are exciting, sometimes changing into horrific monsters who try to strangle each other. They keep you right on the edge of your seat” Cleeft.

In 2015 these three short pieces was played on Dutch festivals. In 2015 and 2016 Play It Back and The Silent Twins were played on festivals in Prague, Budapest (Sziget) and South-Africa.
