Teddy’s Last Ride, a piece originally commissioned for Club Guy & Roni’s Weekend Break Festival, was directed, choreographed and performed by the members and founders of what has matured into their very own performing arts collective (also named Teddy’s Last Ride) .
Loosely inspired by the anti-heroes immortalized through Chuck Palahniuk’s gritty tale “Haunted”, the Teddies carry their audience through a thirty minute journey of obscene self-exploration, heartbreaking stories, and dirty ‘basement beats’ as they dance and shuffle their way through the chaos of their 20’s.

Self-Accusation, originally made for the Club Guy&Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club, is a sly and ironic attack on moral guilt. A piece based on the play by Peter Handke baring the same name. In Self-Accusation the main character accuses himself of adhering to a range of restricting moral codes, decimating his socalled free will. An image based, interdisciplinary dance peformance with live music and spoken word. A piece that examines collective shame, the guilt felt for being human, dessilusion, regret and failure. About mortality and the attempt to become something more than what life has to offer.

The performance ‘KASPAR’, originally made for Club Guy&Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club, is based on the story of Kaspar Hauser by Peter Handke. According to the boy who spent his first fifteen years in a dark cell in 1828 in the german city Neurenburg, neglected and with the knowledge and behavior of a four years old. He could barely speak but was able to write his name and became a living legend.
Director Hendrik Aerts en choreographer Angela Herenda chose to have all the performers play Kaspar. They are very intrigued by the idea of ‘zonder begrip zijn’. In a dared and in all facets theatrical performance dancers, musicians and performers dive into the life of Kaspar. ‘To be someone like somebody else was once’. With impressive and touching singing and music, and performers that keep your attention drawn.
