De Warme Winkel is getting her teeth into the crisis that is now sweeping through Europe. By analogy with the Arab Spring, we are fighting for an Amsterdam Spring: political and poetic pieces that energetically probe the painful wound. In previous productions we became involved in the ‘war of cultures’ and dealt with the crisis. In the new piece, We are your friends, we are testing Europe’s use-by date.
We were invited to create this production by Brussels, Prague, Lisbon, Toulouse, Amsterdam and Berlin, but they still don't know which country needs their empathy (and triple-A rating) the most. The group shows its solidarity and tests yours, in search of original perspectives and pan-European long-views.
We are your friends is a coproduction with House on Fire and supported by the Cultural program of the European Union.
