Veer is an intimate visual theatre play in which we use shadowplay, an overhead projector and pop-up illustrations. We tell the story of a young girl in Amsterdam North called Veer. Veer is alone in the world. Her granddad has just passed away and her dad is missing on the Amsterdam lake. Veer decides to travel through Amsterdam on her own, searching for her own place in this world. Veer is a short visual play which we made in collaboration with the HKU Theater, de Toneelmakerij and de Krakeling.
