ten Cate set and costume design: Fer Smidt company: Het Monument premiere:
CCV-theater, Maastricht 1988>
play 'de tweedehands knecht' was conceived by J. ten Cate. It
was based on the tradition of the Italian 'comedia del arte'.
It could be played anywhere. I designed a background-screen
which also could be used anywhere, made of rough texture. This
comedy made use of several double roles, where the totally different
way of acting and the ability of quick costume changes left
the audience in confusion of who is who.
