GEEN VERHAAL is a poetic theatre concert without a story, but with silence and language. Laura van Dolron searches for what connects us instead of what divides us. An evening with her is always a special one, a night you won't forget easily. No story, but so much meaning. So come and surrender to Laura.

"I will not be telling you a story this time. I love language, she's my best friend, but she often tells me what I want to hear. My profession is telling stories, it is my way of organizing reality, rewrite it. And everytime that it's more stubborn, unmanagable, or different from what I thought my story was, is scary."

"So I decided to go beyond stories this time, to give space to everything I don't know or can't control. Empty-handed, but with a hart full of love. Searching for what brings us together instead of what divides us, going beyond opinions and being right, to come closer together - that is, if you guys want that too."

So this poetic theatre concert does not have a story. It focusses on silence and language, on friendship that doesn't need words, on a singing bird, my mother who does not talk for a change but sharpens all my coloured pencils. On things that don't need a story to be supported, that don't need to claim their right to exist, that they matter, because they're just there. What's important, and what just is?

Laura van Dolron

Laura created her own theatre genre: stand-up philosophy. She commutes between the theatre and the world, between fluorescent and theatre lights. She connects social subjects to personal ones in such a way that they reinforce one another. Music also is part of her language, because music, just like silence, makes room for that what cannot be expressed in words.
