De Bonk

A pulsating mime-performance about queer rage and shame with an unavoidable radical rhythm

Bunqer

Location: Perdu

Dates:









duration of the performance: 40 min

Seven birds crash into seven windows in seven seconds. Something is seriously wrong. This is a sign, and Ray immediately knows he must take it very seriously. He decides to lock himself in his room and keep the shutters closed until he has crafted a world-shaking speech. Alone in his room, madness creeps under Ray’s skin, along with pleasure, fire, and anger. The thudding of the birds against the windows echoes through his mind like a rhythmic heartbeat that transforms into a pounding beat. As the beat intensifies, Ray grows beyond himself. His thoughts become increasingly radical, and he slowly loses control.  

De Bonk is a performance about being queer, anger, shame, and the overly developed ability to conform to the norm. This ability, developed out of necessity, can provide safety but eventually becomes suffocating. 

Biography

Bunqer is a creative duo consisting of Tine Tabak and Niels van Heijningen, a writer/dramaturge and a mime/actor. In their work, they strive to connect the thinking body with the adventurous spirit. Their mission is to put ‘mime writing’ on the map and explore how the performative, physical, and honest power of mime can be combined with the poetic and narrative power of language. In this way, they aim to create stories that are unrestrained and full of life. Bunqer seeks to inspire the audience to lead bold, daring, and mindful lives. They have previously created work for Boslab Theater Festival, Podium Bloos, and Studio/K.
