Before / After zooms in on small and everyday things.

37 ordinary people go about their daily activities. Yet, in Before/ After you see something very small shift in all of their lives which makes it impossible to continue living as they did before. The universe of small, recognizable stories of the play Vorher/Nachher by Roland Schimmelpfennig come to life, with a cast of 37 actors, dancers, musicians, and cinematographers.

After winning the Dutch Regieprijs (best director) for Salam and glowing reviews for Brave New World 2.0, Guy Weizman is back with his latest production: Before/After. In Before/After, the audience witnesses a film being made live on stage which literally zooms in on the body and life of an elderly woman.

“We are accustomed to films and theater being about something epic and huge. But our daily life is mostly the small things from your small life. And hiding right behind these small things is what makes us profoundly human.” – Guy Weizman

After big stories about our fascination for the suffering of others (Carrousel), the conflict between world religions (Salam) and the future of humanity (Brave New World 2.0), director Guy Weizman zooms in with Before/After to focus on small and everyday things. Most lives may not be epic or thrilling, but that does not make them less interesting. It’s quite possible that our deepest selves only truly reveal themselves in our everyday lives. In a visual, poetic mosaic with a large cast of dancers, singers and actors, a universe of small, recognizable stories is brought to life with overflowing emotion.
