Description

The children's theatre by Dutch director Jetse Batelaan, winner of the Silver Lion, kicks off the Festival reconnecting to a tradition of La Biennale which has dedicated great attention in the past to this theatre, which can count on a renovated language such that it now shares in the developments of research in theatre.
The Story of the Story represents the visionary style that this director and author interlaces with a philosophical outlook to address today's themes and myths.

“We as human beings appear to have an irresistible need for relevance and meaning. We like to matter. We want to be part of a story. Whilst we used search for that in religions and great ideals, now you notice that people, from sheer poverty, have started to dramatise their own lives. On social media we share our “story”. Hooray, our life has meaning again!” (Jetse Batelaan)
