Under Wetter (May)

A perfect summer evening on the ice rink

In the performance Under Wetter, a village is confronted with major changes. When even the future of the ice rink is at stake, it becomes too much for some.

The ice rink has been on the land of the Kingma family for many years. While the ghost of Kingma senior still haunts, daughter Afke is in a split. Will she keep her promise to maintain the job, or will she sell the land to save her farm? Her son has a right to a future and skating is almost never possible anymore. Will the ice rink bring them back together like before?

A perfect summer evening on the ice rink

In the performance Under Wetter, a village is confronted with major changes. When even the future of the ice rink is at stake, it becomes too much for some.

The ice rink has been on the land of the Kingma family for many years. While the ghost of Kingma senior still haunts, daughter Afke is in a split. Will she keep her promise to maintain the job, or will she sell the land to save her farm? Her son has a right to a future and skating is almost never possible anymore. Will the ice rink bring them back together like before?

In Under Wetter, Tryater and Ivgi&Greben speak different voices about the future of the ice rink. The ice rink chairman who wants to leave everything as it is, the farmer's wife who wants to sell the land, the climate researcher who puts the ice rink problems in a broader perspective and the child who has never skated on natural ice.

The performance is the kick-off for IIS, a project about ice as a connector of the mienskip. Because as soon as it freezes, we will take action en masse to ensure that everyone can get on the ice. On skates, by sled, on foot or otherwise. But at the same time, the ice rinks have become a symbol of the climate crisis. IIS invites the Fryske mienskip to devise and create cultural manifestations around the ice rinks for the summer of 2022. Small and large. In order to move together for a sustainable and liveable future.

Experience a large-scale outdoor performance on winter days on summer evenings. On a beautiful ice rink, actors, dancers, musicians and extras depict the story of the Kingma family. Under Wetter is an ode to the many ice rinks in Fryslân, which – despite warmer winters – are still functioning. A performance about desires and traditions, full of drama and celebration.
