Dood Paard, which translates to “dead horse” from Dutch to English, was virtually unknown to American theater audiences. Aside from two brief, unreviewed appearances, one at P.S. 122 and the other as part of the Guggenheim’s Works and Process, the company, an avant-garde troupe from Amsterdam, was new to New York City. They brought three incredible productions, but there was no critical response. It was terribly disappointing, and as someone who saw all the shows, it seemed unfair and a real loss for New York readers. The company members remained optimistic, and are making plans to come back. After leaving New York, they headed to sold-out shows in Toulouse, France.
