A refugee with too few keys / About the fundamental need for human contact
Mr. Linh fled his war-wrecked country, in search of a better future for his granddaughter. He does not feel at home in the foreign land, until one day he meets Mr. Bark. Mr. Bark mainly talks about his wife, who recently passed away. Mr. Linh does not understand him, but he listens, with his little girl on his lap. They keep meeting every day on the same bench at the park. Until one day everything changes...
‘Het kleine meisje van meneer Linh’ is a moving story based on a novel by Philippe Claudel, about a man who must flee his country with the little he has left. Koen De Sutter gives shape to the strangeness of a new world and the familiarity that grows regardless between two people, each with their own scars - within the framework of European cooperation Limitless.
Whereas the earlier ‘Grensgeval’ showcased the Westerner and his inability to find an answer to the new European, 'Het kleine meisje van meneer Linh' speaks from the sensory experience of refugees themselves, who are handed (too) few keys to grasp their new world. The performance is part of a large European collaboration - Grenzeloos - and tours in Dutch, French, English, German and Spanish.
