mateloos (rcth)

to friendship such an endless desire


an evening of theater, song and dance
with texts by writers from Rotterdam
based on beautiful
life stories of elderly gay men and women
stories that now unfortunately are still actual
these days too, there are more and more people
who may not be, who they want to be, who they are


‘Endless desire’ is played by elderly gay men and women
from the ‘Pink Salon’ from Humanitas Bergweg in Rotterdam
together with actors from the Rotterdam Centre for Theatre
they can be seen in a mosaic of desires
recognizable for each and everyone of us
