Absurdism by Daniil Charms
music theatre | 2019-2020
Kabarett Dapitulet is a tragicomical music theatre show by actor Hans Dagelet, viola player Esther Apituley, and pianist/actor Christiaan Kuyvenhoven. An absurd theatre spectacle with texts by Daniil Charms, and classical music by Pärt, Bach, Glinka, and Shostakovich.
Renowned actor Hans Dagelet portrays an old man who decided to become a police officer. He tries to take back control over his life. Or is he already dead? Or did he resurrect to put things right? He shares his absurd and endless wisdoms with viola player Esther Apituley, and pianist/actor Christiaan Kuyvenhoven. They seem to have painfully moved on. But where they can’t find each other in words, they seem to be intimately connected through music.
