Cabinet of curiosities
The Brussels theatre-maker Isabelle Dumont has put together a ‘cabinet of curiosities’, a colourful collection of ‘artificialia and naturalia’ – art objects and wonders of animal kingdom. She was guided by her amazement, always welcoming surprises, and is now sharing her delight with the public. On the basis of this collection she tells a story about the relationship between man and the animals down the ages.
Isabelle Dumont makes theatre and dance performances. She has created a number of ‘conférences-spectacles-cabinets de curiosités’, with which she has been a guest at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts and elsewhere.
