Daan Mathot / volDaan | DIEP

A man stuck. Stuck in a well. He is wrestling with his environment. And then the damp besets him ... He’s swamped. His truth belies, ticks, itches, leaks. How can he escape? He struggles and emerges. DIEP is a visually evocative, mind-testing theatre performance in which not a word is spoken and where the phenomenon of ‘being stuck’, in general or down a well like here, reaches tremendous heights. You look down a surrealistic well, an optical illusion you would love to lose yourself in. Dive deep down into the world of DIEP and discover a reality in which nothing is right. Or is it ...?
