Troost voor Cool (Comforting Cool) is a summer project by Theater Babel Rotterdam, in which theatre maker Brecht Hermans goes out into our neighborhood with actors from the company. After Self-portraits of Delfshaven we will now explore the Cool neighborhood, which is the neighborhood around our theatre. Through scenes about comfort, Babel will have theatrical encounters with neighbors and visitors of the neighborhood. Where did you find comfort in the past months? How can art offer comfort? Every actor makes and plays their own personal scene, in which they show the power of (inclusive) art: the power to comfort and the power of imagination.
From July 14th until August 13rd, we will go out into the Cool-neighborhood on every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. From 1 to 3pm, we will visit a square or sidewalk and perform for everyone we meet. Follow the Babel Facebook page to know exactly where we are and when. Or make an appointment:
Do you want to meet us on a specific date
or invite us to come and meet your organization in the Cool neighborhood
or visit us in our theatre with a group of max. 10 people?
On Thursday, August 27th at 3pm, we organize an ending performance – the finale – in our theatre at Eendrachtsstraat 81. One last time, we will share our scenes of comfort and tell tales of our adventures in the neighborhood. Would you like to be there? Nice! Tickets are free, but we ask you to make a reservation through this link.
