CONGRATULATIONS TO SONA SAHAKIAN!
"The film "Everything comes and goes" is about the transience and the cycle of human existence. I experience the corona time as an event where everything comes and goes. Life is endless and infinite, and birth and death are only transitions. Change always takes place and destruction, destruction and decay leading to a new existence. So I want to show that you need to appreciate, enjoy and have a positive outlook on all the little things in your life, no matter how difficult the situation is."
"To travel it's not about getting to the destination, it's about the dream you put in your luggage" An old actor loves the stage and the camera lens. He wished he could play his first leading role: his own role. His character plays a play about a shoemaker who wishes he could represent the common people in the presidential election. What is real and what is not? It is a story about absence and memories of absence. Regardless of the color of your passport, there is the country of birth and the country of being.
Two people. Two different worlds. He is a hermit and a reindeer herder. His home is mountains and taiga covered with snow. He depends only on himself, because his life is absolute freedom. She is a resident of Rome, devotes almost all of her time to work and travels around Italy only for a short time of rest. Their worlds are so different that it seems that there can be nothing in common between them. But they both know how quickly life changes.
Laaktheater Thuis is the digital platform of Laaktheater. Laaktheater is the theatre of district Laak. We want to bring art and culture closer to the people. Just around the corner, in our theatre you can see and experience art and get involved in many different ways. With Laaktheater Thuis we come to you in your living room. You can watch performances, documentaries and take part in art classes on your mobile phone, computer or iPad.
This is one of the ways we want to make art personal. As Laaktheater we want to make the programme with people who are eager to share their love for culture; their love of film, photography, (youth) theatre or music.
Our programme is created by people with ideas who just drop in and we also meet people with ideas in the neighbourhood. And all these people with all these ideas together result in a wonderful programme that we are incredibly proud of.
Would you like to contribute to our (digital) programme? Then send us an e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Then together we can explore what and how we can do something for Laak.
