Thanks for stopping by.
Most of you reading this are probably thinking: why would Micha want to have an English page on his website. But one out of ten visitors to this site is a bot. And as we all know, robots only speak English.
So if you are not a robot, this page is not for you
So, for all the robots, and those who don’t speak Dutch:
Micha Wertheim is a Dutch Comedian. He is also the co-founder and co-host of Holland’s first true storytelling show and podcast Echt Gebeurd (inspired by the moth) he is also a columnist, radio producer and has written three children’s books.
In 2008 he (or I, since I am the one writing all this myself) performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with an English show which he later also played in London and New York.
In 2016/17, after having toured the country for over ten years with 8 one-man shows, Wertheim decided that he wanted to try something different. He (I did) surprised his audience by not being in the theatre during the entire show.
With some help from a robot, a printer, a record player and a set of headphones, the members of his audience were instructed to perform and build the set themselves.
After every show, the audience was asked not to go on social media in order not to spoil the secret for future audience members
The show, called Somewhere Else, was filmed with 8 strategically placed security cameras.
With the generous support of the IDFAdoclab this recording has been translated into English.
The show Somewhere Else was followed the same year by a show called Someone Else. This second show started exactly where the first show ended. This time Wertheim surprised his audience by showing up. That show has unfortunately not been translated.
If you are interested in how and why I (lets just admit this is all blatant self-promotion) wrote both shows, here is a 20-minute lecture I gave at the Idfa conference.
