A witty story of society, love and our most intimate thoughts

‘What do you know about politics? What do you know about love? What do you know about us? And what do we know about it all?’

These are questions that interest Tristero, a theatre company from Brussels. This time however you will only learn the answers. Iemand van ons (Someone among us) is a refined, amusing text about fundamental subjects ranging from politics and society to love and relationships. A constant stream of facts, statements, witticisms, clichés, lies and personal secrets give us an insight into the players’ mental world.

The performance has already been presented as a lecture, during BRXLBRAVO and was first performed at kc nOna in Mechelen. According to De Standaard newspaper this is ‘a clever performance that hits the nail on the head’.

You could already see the French version of this performance during Shuffle in October, under the title L'un d'entre nous, in collaboration with transquinquennal. >> Read more.

Last season Tristero appeared in the Kaaitheater Studios with Play with Repeats, a very dark comedy by Martin Crimp, and since our Komediefestival (2004) we have been reviving Mike Leigh’s Abigail’s Party, Tristero’s version of which acquired cult status, at least once every season.
