Salomé is the famous piece of Oscar Wilde. Exactly 120 years after finishing Salomé, the NNT and Project Wildeman are bringing the play to life in a whole own version. In the famous story, Johannes de Doper (Jokanaän) is imprisoned because he did’nt allow himself to be seduced by Queen Herodias and her daughter Salomé. When Salome has to dance at the big party for her stepfather, King Herod, she can ask everything she wants in exchange.
The young Flemish director Julie van den Berghe takes you to the head of Johannes de Doper. She combines the exceptional playing style of the regular NNT actors with the unique music of Project Wildeman and the dance of Sam Louwijck. In the face of the NNT-actors core Project Wildeman is a idiosyncratic foursome, which combines music, theater and poetry trough it’s own language. According to moose.nl, Salomé is “a very beautiful serie of gorgeous images, good acting, poetic music and modest dance”. Van den Berghe succeeded in merging various theater styles into an exuberant and fierce staging of desire and passion and what it means to be human.
