999 Geen Dienst Theater

"The Platform is for everyone" is a golden role we follow in our theater group; we always have open doors for new talent, to develop them and give them a platform to perform and express themselves.
"Art is a message" and that is our 2nd golden role, we always seek to make theater with a message, let people laugh, yes, but meaningful laugh. We might touch the audience's emotions and pains, however, we do that with a message. When you finish watching our plays, you will always have something to think about, and of course, we do that in a direct way, simple way, and interesting plot.
"Diverse creates harmony" the differences among humans are not to divide them, these differences or the diversity among us "humans" are there to connect us, to make us complete each other, not compete with each other. And the diversity we seek is not just the origin diversity, as we proudly have in our group people from more than 12 different origins and more than 5 continents. Also, we seek a diverse theater experience, therefore, we are doing our best to bring experienced artists side by side with inexperienced artists, so we can create some fine arts that will remain in the memory of the audience.

"I'm not zo Zielig" is a journey of a refugee; starting from his struggling back home; searching for freedom, till he ends up in the Netherlands, where he has found something as hard as discrimination, the "Zo Zielig" treatment. If someone can take a journey of thousands of miles, breaking all the borders and the boundaries, then they don't need pity, they would need guidance, but not pity. Our refugee here is declaring "even when life is hard and difficult, there is always another side of the story, where there is hope and creativity."
I'm not Zo Zielig was played 21 times in Delft, Leiden, Oegstgeest, Rijnsburg and Amsterdam. 
The play got a 7.6 as an evaluation from the audience at "Delft Fringe Festival."
