Spread the sadness - een missverkiezing van tranen is een ode aan het verdriet. Een tranentrekkende voorstelling over het vormgeven van je eigen pijn en het toe-eigenen van die van een ander. Max Laros en Rosita Segers verhouden zich tot een wereld vol tranen waarin ze een poging doen verdriet te omarmen en te kunnen huilen in het bijzijn van hun publiek.

Spread the sadness – a beauty pageant of tears is an ode to sadness. A tear-jerking performance about shaping your own pain and appropriating that of someone else. About how suffering affects your identity and sadness is reduced to entertainment. If pain is made superficial, can sadness still exist as a connection between people?

Together we cry, together we cry, together we cry, together we cry, there’s so much sad gonna flood the ocean – the script

Max Laros and Rosita Segers relate to a world full of tears in which they attempt to embrace grief and cry in front of their audience.

Over de makers

We are Performance collective Non Creators Company, a makers duo from Utrecht consisting of Rosita Segers and Max Laros.

We got to know each other at the Actors Training at the Utrecht School of the Arts, where we graduated in 2020.
In the second year of drama school, we worked together for the first time on a short performance called Voorland. This was a performance about the urge to tear down the current world and build a new one. As a result of that collaboration, we decided to create a graduation performance together in our fourth year: Remembering Selves. A performance about the fear of being forgotten and the will to leave something behind.

Last year we made our first “own” production: Spread the sadness – a beauty pageant of tears

Our work is expressive and colourful, visual and physical. We almost always work from a theme or question and strive to be surprised and inspired during a broad preliminary investigation. We are fascinated by the entertainment industry, out-of-the-ordinary hobbies and glitter makeup.
We make layered, associative montage performances in which we look for ways to reach our viewer in a different way time and time again.
