BOK (7+)

Here we are. Standing in line. 

Trying to meet each other’s eyes

Before we 

Run. Jump. Take off. 


We do as we're told. 

Follow the rules. 


We go to school. Do our homework. 

Jump over the buck ... wait ... the BUCK?! 


​In BOK, Dutch for gym buck, there is lots of movement and little words. Theatre group BATMAT experiments with the rules of life and chooses the gym as its metaphorical arena. 


Those that aren't fit, have to be smart to survive. And even smarter still if you don’t want to be last pick when choosing teams.

But what if you didn't sleep well? Or forgot your gym clothes? What if you were planning on crawling underneath the buck, instead of jumping over?
