    The Hague's contribution to The New York International Fringe Festival 2011

    Elves, humans, gnomes and scientists discuss God

    A way of man is a storytelling performance based on the famous Dutch book De Kleine Johannes, written in 1885 by Frederik van Eeden.

    After a tour of the theatres, schools and living rooms of Holland, and being received with 4½ star reviews at THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE 2010, A way of Man comes to New York City.

    Michael&Caja is a Dutch theatre company based in The Hague, specializing in international theatre productions and custom made performances.

    Jonathan is a boy on his quest to manhood. It is a long journey filled with wonder, love, loneliness and danger. On his journey Jonathan is driven by his will to discover the one ultimate truth.

    He meets many fantastical characters; all who confuse, manipulate, love and inspire him. They claim that they, and only they, can reveal the one truth to him and he follows them, fully devoted yet ready with questions.

    Why tell this story now? Apart from a very interesting view on the development and growth of a person, this story beautifully shows the vulnerability of youth as one begins to shape one’s identity and tries to find his or her position in society. During this impressionable faze young people are susceptible to extremes. The story shows how easily someone can be enticed to step away from society and eventually turn one’s back to it. More often than not this leads to fundamentalism and extremism.

    “A passionate, hypnotic one-woman performance”
    “it is this simplicity which allows you to be so captivated”
    Anthony Burt -
    “skilful and flamboyant performance” Friedl Marincowitz - ISS Magazine
