This production remained unfinished due to declined support by
Fonds voor podiumkunsten
What should, no doubt, have been the author’s most mature and complex production – which combines on the one hand all their many years of research in the field of mask, movement and music, on the other, with their extensive experience in communication with a wide audience – unfortunately did not come out. Because an institution that should support new, original tendencies and independent projects – through very positively evaluating the show as a “visually impressive, topical and provocative project” – still decided not to grant this project.
So, unfortunately, this work remained unfinished.
The play was produced in the period 1992 – 1994.
The premiere was planned for May 1994.
The first tour and performances at renowned festivals in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, and Spain were planned for the summer of 1994.
Miracles Now is the ONLY production by these authors that has not been performed.
