NEE combines cabaret with punk. Quiet stories alternate with loud, screaming songs. The performer on stage is young, female and fat, and struggles with the disapproval she experiences from the outside world and the limits she imposes on herself. She attempts to break free. All the while yelling, screaming, headbanging, and cursing the world. Until it she no longer needs to. 
 

Heleen van der Donck is cabaretier, songwriter and theater maker. In 2022 she graduated from the Koningstheateracademie in Den Bosch. At the academy she focused on themes such as coming home and beauty standards. Her performance explores the interplay of punk and cabaret, where activism, anger, humor and theater meet.
