Over the pond Productions

Lysanne started Over The pond Productions to tell stories from and about Europe. Through theatre we want to share the values that we believe Europe stands for and bring people closer together in a time we all feel so separated. Because recent events in UK and world politics we've become increasingly aware of people making choices without realising what will the consequences can be. Instead of coming together, we all seem to become more distant than ever. And what better way to achieve that, than through storytelling?

Over the Pond's first production was Lady of Stavoren which was performed on the 9th and 10th of May 2018 at the Wandsworth Fringe. 

Lady Of Stavoren

In a village, not too far away from here, lived a woman who had to make a choice. A choice that could destroy her…. Everything in the Lady’s life is perfect; she’s the richest woman in the city, she’s got power. But that isn’t enough, what she really wants is the most valuable thing in the world. What that might be, she doesn’t know but she wants it and she’ll do anything to get it.

What if our choices could destroy a whole city or even a country? What if our greed could stop us from being able to love? What if we would have to live our whole life with guilt and regret?

With an all-female ensemble, movement and live music, Over the Pond Productions brings you a dark Dutch fable, questioning the decisions we make and how to deal with the consequences. A story as relevant today as it was 200 years ago.
