Festival CEMENT 2011

Festival CEMENT 2011
From February 21st until 27th 2011, Maastricht hosts Festival CEMENT 2011.
Seven days to enjoy more than 25 special theatre and dance performances at various locations in town. From industrial shed to church, from shop to factory building, from living room to theatre. Be surprised and entertained by the directors, choreographers and playwrights of the future.

The heart of the festival is at the Timmerfabriek where you can find more information, and there are also the parties.

Yesterday was the opening and I attended the premiere of the theatre performance 'The Father, the Son and the Holy Feast' by Sadettin Kirmiziyüz in Het Huis van Bourgondië.

The Father, the Son and the Holy Feast
Original Dutch title: De vader, de Zoon en het Heilige Feest

In November 2010 Sadettin Kirmiziyüz made the biggest journey of his life. Together with his father he went to Mecca for a pilgrimage, the Hajj, to continue a family tradition.With his father as a minister in this ancient ritual, he was ordained as an apprentice. Armed with the experience of this intrusive trip he makes a performance about fathers and sons, believing and not believing, Abraham, Isaac, Muhammad, God and Allah. A sacred road story where nothing cannot be done and everything is true. And that should be celebrated.

Production: C-mine Cultuurcentrum, De Queeste, Dommelhof, Het Huis van Bourgondië

Emke Idema 'Ins and outs of the hole in your head
' is also included in the Festival.
