9 to life | theatre

9 TO LIFE is a reflection of what is happening in our current, hasty society. The show is based  on the debated line between habit and ritual, nevertheless knowing that both can be developed into an obsession, so at what point does that happen? The integral question revolves around; what is normal concerning performance pressure and who decides upon the line of standardised norms? A 30 minute non-spoken show containing a combination of dance, absurdism and visual theatre. 

' This Dutch group brings quite absurd site-specific theatre, atmosphere-wise similar to Flemish company Abattoir Fermé '
- Geert Mangelschots, organisor en programmer TREZART (BE)

‘Ik lijk me als toeschouwer te bevinden op een schemerige plek, wellicht onderbelichte hoeken uit mijn dromen. Een plek waar mensen monsters worden en angsten voeten krijgen’
Joey Schrauwen, performance artist (NL)

' The surreal act of HipSick Unusual Theatre gives us food for thought ' 
Gazet van Antwerpen (BE)
