Third Culture Kid
Third Culture Kid is an absurd variety show that plays on expectation and is an open house to anyone who has ever felt homesick in their own home. Margo van de Linde has performed in Burlesque shows, performance theatre, comedy and children’s theatre…now you’ll see her from a different angle.
Third Culture Kid: A person who has spent a significant part of their youth outside the home culture.
When theatre maker, actress and entertainer Margo van de Linde was two years old she moved for the first time in her life. To Canada. And then she kept moving. To America, to England, to Spain. She now lives in her home country again. So why doesn’t it feel like home? The answer to this question is the starting point of this solo.
‘During the devising process I became gradually more aware that I have made of the theatre what I couldn’t find elsewhere. This borderless empty space is perfect. I know how to entertain my guests and create a sense of comfort. I know this culture and I speak this language. But what if I stop pretending? Remove these illusions of security? Play the unexpected? Stop playing altogether?’
A performance in English (and a little bit of Dutch).
Performances take place on Thursday 3, Friday 4, Saturday 5 (start at 20:30 hrs) and Sunday 6th of May (start at 16:00 hrs).
