Sliding Slope

The water is right up to our throats. You see four people striving to survive on the rooftop of a drowning house.

Dancetheatre on a rooftop of a flooded house

Climate change is the driving force for this exciting outdoor performance:

Between recognizability and absurdism the audience becomes involved in the pressing situation of rising waters and the potential of drowning in a self created scenario.

A roof on the water, similar to a sinking ship. On the slippery surface, four people fight for survival. Will they make it? Who will try to find a solution for everyone, who will only want to save his own skin?

Vloeistof interprets the problems of climate change and rising sea levels in a memorable way: the loss of control and the possibly greatest talent of humanity: the denial of what we have created ourselves.

Are you heating up a little bit?

The prototype of the roof was created with the support of the Bosch Parade, with the project 'We leven vrolijk verder'.
