Performance 13.11 CANCELLED

Due to an injury of one of the performers, buren's SPARE TIME WORK tonight has been cancelled. All tickets will be refunded.

Can you spend spare time? When is one a big spender? How do you spend spare time? How do you spend your spare time? Do you like to play? Sports? Do you work? Out? Do you go to the gym? I’m pretty sure I saw you there...

In SPARE TIME WORK buren musically approaches thoughts and ideas on (reproductive) labour and leisure. They explore class and growth with the help of characters like Adult Hood and Young, Cleaner, Grown Woman and Office Worker. Drenched in different colour spheres they investigate a variety of (power)relations, economical desires and social realities. All while being surrounded by the inner and outer voices of (personal) histories and radio, internet and television. In what way is our ‘day and age’ telling us what to be, where to stand and what to do? Who is carrying the dogma, codes, laws and what systems are at work?
