De dood van Benny Simons Orkater

After his sudden death, he sees his family slowly but surely falling apart; his brother, mother and girlfriend get lost in their anger, sadness and the emptiness that has arisen. In this energetic and musical performance, Benny - now that he is no longer there - struggles with the question of how he can ensure that the people he loves most do not lose each other in a world where it is so easy to get lost.

The Death of Benny Simons is not only a story about the consequences of senseless violence, but also a story about a boy who, as the eldest son, wants to keep his family together at all costs, even after his death. In this atmospheric tour de force about family relationships and masculinity, Benny's past and present are intertwined by a live soundtrack.

The Death of Benny Simons is the theater debut of filmmaker Shady El-Hamus. Just like in his films, this performance stars a boy with big dreams who is shaken from one moment to the next.
