Superposition theatre play on tour in the Netherlands
Fancy a night out at the theatre? Well, look no further, because Superposition, a production by the Dutch theatre group Toneelschuur Producties, is showing at theatres all around the Netherlands.
Get your tickets online in advance and get ready for an idealistic play about explaining cultural differences through mathematics. The performance is surtitled in English, Japanese and Dutch.
About the play
Looking at it all objectively, if we take a numerical approach, will we discover that we are all the same? Or will we find out that all differences between people and cultures lie much deeper than we think?
An international team of Dutch and Japanese top mathematicians is close to discovering a model that explains cultural differences. Their clashes and misunderstandings provide the best argument that their formulas are much needed. Both in bright fluorescent light and under disco lights, these four fearless mathematicians enter the minefield of cultural misunderstanding.
Superposition is an idealistic show as well as an absurd mathematical equation: the similarities and differences between the Netherlands and Japan, between probability and geometry, between man and woman and between newness and tradition are contrasted. A performance about wanting to get through to each other and trying to understand the true inner being of humans, albeit via a giant detour.
