In Derwig’s inimitable performance, he played a man who pays tribute to Western culture, while he had to announce for a piano trio conducted by Lisa Verchtmann. As the evening progresses and the character develops, he takes controversial positions.

This caused a commotion in the room, and several people left before the end. A woman yelled as she left. Someone said: The Jews are gone.

“I expected people to scream, but not that they would run away,” said Bo Tarinskin, writer and co-founder of Na Di Dam Theatre. He feared that Derwig would not be able to perform because of the noise. “The end is important, because it shows the consequences of extremes, that is, the death of art.”

After commemorating the dead, Na Di Dam Theater organizes theater performances across the country every year at 9 pm. At the same time, there are more than a hundred performances, each of which is associated with the Second World War in its own way.

Performances from the Théâtre na de Dame were also presented by Artis, Frascati, and De Meervaart, among others.
