Juan Pedro Garcia Oliva. PHOTO FILE SERVICE

A first for the Vosbergen stage, a performance without a kokeleko, the misery of near death, everything about the sky builder and a host of triggers. There is a lot to do in Groningen and Drenthe in the next few days.

A performance without kokeleko

Bert Hadders and Herman Sandman. One is from Drenthe, the other from Groningen. They are together in the theater. the couple brings Singing and Placement, a program about Drenthe and Drenthe, about Groningers and Groningen.

Songs and stories about the beauty of the land and about the inhabitants, with their idiosyncrasies. For the inhabitants of Groninger and Drenthe, a terrifying recognition party and for those who are not from Groninger or Drenthe, many things suddenly become clear. They both grew up in Veenkoloniën, each on one side of the border. Hadders in Tweede Exloërmond, Sandman in Stadskanaal. They are childhood friends and have a love-hate relationship with the land of their parents, the Veenkoloniën.

A world of emptiness, windmills and filter coffee, of social housing, mobility scooters and autocross, where every sandstorm heralds the end of the world and life is like the German lottery: Ohne Gewähr. Hadders and Sandman teetered on the brink of alcohol addiction in the back room of civilization. They survived this and incorporated their experiences into an all-night show, straight from the heart of Drenthe and Groningen. no coke To be seen on Friday at vanBeresteyn in Veendam and also on saturday The Winsinghhof in Roden.

Veendam – vanBeresteyn, Friday 8:15 p.m., €17.50
