The Master and Margarita in the Netherlands
November 5, 2015
Stormvogels, the young theatre collective of seven actors who graduated together in 2014 at the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem, Netherlands, is ready to represent The Master and Margarita on stage. Through a crowndfunding they could collect, in one month time, the resources which were required to stage their own interpretation of the masterpiece of Mikhail Bulgakov.
The script, written by Alain Pringels, zooms in on censorship in the arts, in the time of Bulgakov and now, and tells the story from the perspective of the master who, by the imposed from above censorship - and addicted to morphine - got into a mental isolation in which the boundaries between dream and reality are blurring.
The Master and Margarita will be played by Eva Heijnen, Tom Jaspers, Anna Keuning, Laurien Riha, Anna Nijenhuis, Ali Zijlstra and Niels Quist. The director is Julie Van Den Berghe.
