Intensive care 3 a.m.
A camera crew gets permission to shoot a film in a hospital. Some of the hospital staff get thoroughly irritated by the film crew’s behaviour. One night this irritation reaches its climax, but it also reveals unexpected perspectives as well. This, in short, is the story behind Intensive care 3 a.m., the new play by the Toneelgroep Maastricht. Although the dialogue is in Dutch, the play is mainly a visual performance. For non-Dutch speakers, Toneelgroep Maastricht will give a brief introduction in English before the performances on Wednesday 26 October and Thursday 3 November at 19.45 in the Derlon Theater. For reservations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets (including student discount) are available via www.toneelgroepmaastricht.nl.
Spinvis, Erik de Jong’s one-man band, will perform his dreamy, sometimes strange songs on Thursday 27 October in the Muziekgieterij. Spinvis is known for songs like Ik wil alleen maar zwemmen and Voor ik vergeet. He has won several prizes, including the Popprijs for artists who have made an important contribution to Dutch pop music. The show will start at 20.00; student tickets cost €10 in the pre-sale.
