BLESSED BE ANONYMITY / LONG LIVE ANONYMITY (No worries no more)
After two major setbacks:
1 – Tour and Impresario (the realisation that we will never belong to the big “commercial” theatre)
2 – Outcome with Miracles Now (the realisation that we will never belong to the Dutch “subsidised”, that is, “artistic” theatre)
Instead of continuing to work in the direction we worked before these two disasters and trying to regain the place we had with Soap Opera outside the Netherlands …
It seems we were so discouraged, exhausted, and killed in the notion that we decided to disappear from the scene forever. And so Mr.Image “flight into anonymity” was born.
Paradoxically, Mr.Image will perform for the next twenty (!) years almost exclusively across the Netherlands?!
The price seemed to be to get out of the theatre scene and act modestly, anonymously, without your own name, without fame, without applause, without critiques and press. No worries no more …
FIGHT OR FLIGHT
After “Tower” and “You are finished here” logically we have chosen to fly. A flight to anonymity.
“Hello, who are you?”
– “Mr.Image to some. Mr.Celophane to others.”
