“What Soesto!” paints a piercing portrait
Based on the experiences of Freark Smink sketches What a Soesto! a poignant portrait of a contemporary farmer. Protagonist Frans can still remember how as a boy he lay stretched out in the grass and listened to the birds. How proud he was to be a farmer’s son! Under his father’s strict hand, Frans himself learned to become a farmer. It wasn’t always easy, no matter how hard his mother tried to protect him. Later, as an independent farmer, Frans had to deal with demands from the government and pressure from society. He almost wanted to be ashamed of his profession. Frans therefore takes stock.
What would he do with his time if he had to stop? Why doesn’t society say more clearly what they expect from farmers so that he can finally be proud to be a farmer again? Under the direction of Jos Thie, Freark Smink plays the farmer himself and Klaasje Postma his mother. After The emigrant , Veterans and It’s who’s with summer evening is thus another special representation of Pier21 traveling through the north.

They are not all visible at the same time, but their presence can always be felt. They appear and disappear, are found and lost again. This gives impressive images, enchanting, mysterious and hypnotic. Everything and everyone is absorbed into a new, limitless dimension, a place of infinite possibilities.
A world is created with its own kind of gravity. Arno Schuitemaker teams up again with composer Aart Strootman and lighting designer Jean Kalman. With him he made his last two performances, i.a This is how you sound tonight winner of the Swan 2019 for the most impressive dance production.
