In 2024, Belgium and the Netherlands will be the joint guest country at Germany’s major book fair, the Leipziger Buchmesse. At the request of the Dresden-based Theater Junge Generation, which finds stimulation in Laika’s sensory work, we are making a stage adaptation of two award-winning books by the Dutch author Benny Lindelauf: Tortot, The Cold Fish Who Lost His World and Found His Heart and Whole Stories for Half a Soldier.
Der Koch und der halbe Soldat (The cook and the half soldier) is a timeless fairytale about the futility of every war, presented with humor and taste. Jo Roets and Christoph Levermann are directing the Dresden ensemble, for the occasion joined by guest actor Gert Jochems, in this brand-new collaboration. Peter De Bie will create an immersive sensory experience, including surprising treats.
The premiere (in German) will take place on 11 November at the Theater Junge Generation in Dresden, Germany, and will then remain on their repertoire.

Some people feel at home wherever they are. Others spend their whole life looking, wandering hither and thither, longing for a place to put down roots and eventually come home to. But what exactly is home?
