Tension in Controversy. The Cabaret of Hans Teeuwen
(Jos Nijhof) The Low Countries - 2018, № 26, pp. 208-215
Hans Teeuwen is a theatre wizard for whom the right term has yet to be coined. The term ‘cabaret artist’ does not do him justice, as the concept is still attached to a mixture of diverse stage genres such as narrative and poetic art or song, whereas with Hans Teeuwen these disciplines combine to form a completely unique theatrical grammar, far removed from existing theatre conventions, with controversial content and an absurdist style. Any attempt to copy him is doomed to failure: Teeuwen’s cabaret is best described as ‘typically Hans Teeuwen’.
