TRANSIT – fasten your seatbelt, there’s no estimated time of arrival

TRANSIT – fasten your seatbelt, there’s no estimated time of arrival is a surreal physical performance about being stuck ‘in between’. The feeling of an eternal transit zone at an airport where no plane ever arrives or departs. As you are waiting for help, with a suitcase in your hand, your body starts to shake as if there is an earthquake inside you. There is no one to help you. You’re on your own. Advice? Enjoy it, because there is still a long way to go.

This absurd, dreamy and humorous performance takes a cinematic look at the feeling of never getting anywhere. In reality, we are more often on the go than arriving somewhere. We are always looking. We strive for happiness. We crave love. We’re trying. We hope. We dream. We wish. We desire. So…watch out for turbulence.

TRANSIT is a sequel to ‘After The Echo’, which won the Best of Fringe Award at the Amsterdam Fringe Festival in 2021.
