Walk with a guide through the Cool district.

The city guide, played by Karel de Rooij (known from Mini & Maxi), takes the audience along the traces of the bombing of 1940, the post-war reconstruction and the current transition of the district in the center of Rotterdam.

More and more personal

What first seems like an objective story about urban renewal becomes more and more personal. Based on his own past as a psychiatric patient, the guide asks questions about dealing with vulnerable people, both now and during the German occupation.

Imagination and reality

A dark side from our past becomes tangible and palpable. But humor and light-heartedness also find a place in the performance, where imagination and reality increasingly intertwine.
