Hideous (Wo)men - Boogaerdt/vd Schoot / Toneelgroep Oostpool


Bianca van der Schoot, Suzan Boogaerdt and Susanne Kennedy have together created the performance Hideous (Wo)men, an expressive and bold theatre production, moulded as a soap. Hideous (Wo)men experiments with the illusion of individual autonomy. The pressure to be a unique individual is very intense in our society. We believe we can be real and authentic individuals and shape our lives by the choices we make. But what if that’s not true? What if we’re just people wearing a mask and have learned to consider it our face?
