The ins and outs of the hole in your head by Emke Idema

The ins and outs of the hole in your head
(De ins en outs van het gat in je hoofd)

Emke Idema finds eating weird.
We stop things in a hole in our heads and then they disappear.
That we do that every day and not find it strange. And we still sit down together as we do and we call it fun.
Emke also finds that eating people are moving.
To find out why exactly, the last two years she did small experiments and made movies, photos and drawings.
With the selection of images Emke shows us the weird from normal, the lonely of being togther, the dirty of tasty and tasty to dirty.
Together with the audience she tries to figure out what our eating habits say about how we live.
A quirky and sometimes intimate search for the ins and outs of the hole in our head.

Her way of being and playing in the combination of a topic that we all are really to familiar with makes this a very amusing performance.
She involves the audience in the story and takes you into her unique world. Very entertaining performance of a likeable theatermaker and once again a cosy evening in Het Huis van Bourgondië. After seeing the performance eating will never be the same again. If you have the opportunity to see it, go!
