Le Bal (2019)


Dutch premiere 22 March 2019, de Meervaart, Amsterdam.

With 'Le Bal' (working title), the Jakop Ahlbom Company makes a new and large-scale performance, which offers a cross-section of how we lived together in the past 100 years. Ahlbom creates a dance hall in which people come together, looking for love, company, bustle. They dance, flirt, argue and get bored. During the performance we see the time pass. Ahlbom got his inspiration for the performance from, among other things, the film 'Le Bal' by Ettore Scola.


Horror has been seen on many continents after the succes in Germany, Austria, UK and The Netherlands and will visit several countries in the future. We will be at the Venice Biennale and touring Australia in the summer of 2018. Check the Agenda to find a the coming tourdates.

A woman returns with two friends to her parental home. The house is haunted by a tragic family event. None of the group knows what happened to the woman’s older sister. Her vengeful spirit, however, does make itself known to them. In a series of flashbacks, the past gradually re-emerges: the cruel parents, the crushed youth. The youngest sister is brutally confronted with the hidden past. The only way to survive is to face the terrible truth.



In May we will be in Shanghai (Theater 1862) and this summer at the Venice Biennale.

Two men are living in a small, single-room apartment. Their space-saving solutions are ingenious. Everything is multifunctional: the bed is a piano, and the bookcase also serves as a fridge. But they long for a woman in the house. To compensate for the lack of the feminine touch, they create a mechanical maid. One of the men makes romantic advances; the other sees her in a more practical role. But the doll soon shows there’s more to her than polishing her day away. She has a will of her own and refuses to be bossed around. Things start getting more agitated in the one-room apartment.
