A woman bathing, shriveled by the water, corroded by time. What is she holding on to? She dreams of the freedom to stray from the beaten path, free from norms and conventions. But how does she do that when adapting to the norm feels safe and comfortable? What can she do when life experiences and their consequences keep her imprisoned? There is more beneath the calm surface than you would initially suspect.
VLOED is an intimate performance with storytelling and puppetry. Drawing from a well of personal stories, Sanne van Dijk creates a tragicomic production about being stuck and finding the courage to break free. Through themes such as boundaries and desire, and (budding) sexuality, she asks herself: why is it so scary to color outside the lines? And, who draws those lines in the first place?
