Mysterious roaming nomads
Four small nomads roam a dark space. Heavily laden, they search for an exit. Who are these four mysterious figures? And will they be able to find their way to safety? Japanese theatre maker Kuro Tanino has already made a strong impression at Noorderzon, such as last year with Avidya – The Dark Inn, a grim fairy tale with an impressive revolving stage set, and in 2010 with the masterpiece Frustrating Picture Book for Adults. His work is a guarantee for colourful and evocative theatre. This year Kuro returns with a mysterious adventure, a hommage to the Polish theatre maker Tadeusz Kantor, in which the audience is invited to acquaint itself with the four roaming beings.
