Forget what you know: Foreign lands begin just a couple of streets away. Two years after her extraordinary piece “Kirschgarten” (“Cherry Garden”) on Kiefernstraße, Marlin de Haan & Team are again drawn into the Düsseldorf cityscape. This time, they have devoted themselves to Henrik Ibsen’s “Die Frau vom Meer” (“The Lady From The Sea”): Ellida is longing for the sea, for parts unknown. And for arrival, finally. She is a spouse, an ex-lover, a stepmother, a woman – and she does not yet know whether she wants to stay. But what is it, even, that makes us stay? How do we live, in and with foreign lands? How much proximity will we allow? Together, Marlin de Haan & Team research identities, scrutinise codes and customs of the city, of humans, of theatre, in their version of “The Lady From The Sea”. Where? This is still to be announced.

Marlin de Haan
Marlin de Haan works at the intersection of performing and visual arts. She deals with tensions of bodies and objects in space, is interested in the potential and boundaries of action areas, of forms of representation and narration. Marlin de Haan realises theatre plays, performances and films, develops stage spaces and creates exhibitions and interactions. Her work has been shown at Schauspielhaus Bochum, Schauspielhaus Hamburg, FFT Düsseldorf and at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt as well as elsewhere; she received invitations to numerous festivals, among them “Favoriten”, “Freischwimmer” and “WildWest”, while her exhibitions took place at the “Maifesta 9”, in Genk/Belgium, at the “Kunsthalle Düsseldorf” and at “Kunstverein Schwerte”, for example. In 2016, she took part in the German-Croatian artist exchange Düsseldorf/Zagreb (Kulturamt Düsseldorf/ Düsseldorf Cultural Department), and in 2016/2017, she worked in Istanbul/Turkey, as part of the artist in residence programme set up by Kunststiftung NRW. Marlin de Haan received the Support Grant for Performing Arts of the City of Düsseldorf.
