With a mix of straightforward theatre, homemade instruments, unpolished poetry of images and a good dose of humour, Muziektheatergroep BOT makes music theatre with a big heart. This has earned them a large fan base among visitors to festivals and location performances who are eagerly awaiting the company's first production for the stage: 'Kloek'. The play deals with a universal theme: motherly love. We see four sturdy men of different origins and ages. There is one thing they all have in common: they are nothing without a mother.
They are nothing without a mother
Motherly love humorously portrayed and sung about in resounding scenery and beautiful songs
The tender male soul of BOT reveals itself in a contemporary reading of the mother figure in all its forms. In a montage performance, we follow the line of different stages of life: from the moment of conception and the first cry for life to her last breath and far beyond. The intangible memory of a mother, whether she was an understanding sounding board or a cursed kenau. From ode to lamentation, from tearjerker to slam poetry: 'Kloek' is set in a sounding décor that BOT has patented. For maximum effect, BOT works with lyricist Jibbe Willems and director Moniek Merkx.
