In this performance toneelgroep Amsterdam thematizes an aspect of their own working method. Irony is central in Een Oprechte Ode aan de Ironie. The makers signal an activist trend among the younger generation and among theater makers, which can be described as new sincerity. Here, importance is attached to authenticity and sincerity, and irony – as a characteristic of postmodernism par excellence – is declared dead. With en Oprechte Ode aan de Ironie, toneelgroep Amsterdam aims to break a lance for perspective, ambiguity and a critical attitude.
