• Johan Simons: Platform

    22.01.2006

    The performances in Amsterdam had already sold out and so I had to go to Rotterdam to see Johan Simons’ production of Michel Houellebecq’s novel Platform. Since I couldn’t leave early from work, this meant eating a pasta salad and a bread roll on the train from Amsterdam to Rotterdam and stuffing myself with French fries from McDonald's on my way to the theatre. An appropriate start to see the performance.

    I had to queue almost 45 minutes to buy a ticket and then another 20 minutes or so to actually get into the exhibition on the top floor of the Centre Pompidou, but it was well worth the wait, if only to see Marcel Duchamp's The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even set against the skyline of Paris.
