Enver Husicic

Meet the playwrights who are contributing to the Around-the-Globe Chain Play.

Enver Husicic (The Netherlands) studied Writing for Performance at the Utrecht School of the Arts. He has written for a number of Dutch theatre companies including Het Syndicaat, Het Zuidelijk Toneel and Growing Up in Public. His plays deal with sexual desire, love, death and torture, and are characterized by a poetic intensity, humour and extreme and violent stage action. Enver’s plays depict a society that preaches false morals and values to disguise the individualism and existential loneliness of the human being. With razor sharp dialogue, his characters rip open themselves and those around them in their inability and unwillingness to adapt or conform. ‘The approach is reminiscent of the East European avant-garde represented by writers such Slawomir Mrozek and Pavel Kohout, artists who criticized the insane bureaucracy with a good dose of absurdism and absurdity. No psychological characterization but […] grotesque figures which symbolize, to a lesser or greater degree, the powers and forces of a derailed society’ Algemeen Dagblad.
