Simon Allemeersch / Lucinda Ra
CANCELLED: Rabot 4-358
Please note: this show has been cancelled to help contain the spread of the new coronavirus.
Rabot 4-358 is a documentary performance about the social residential towers of Ghent’s Rabot district and the workshop that existed there for 26 months. This workshop started as a personal initiative of Simon Allemeersch and Wannes Degelin (Samenlevingsopbouw Gent). The performance tells it's story and tries to answer seemingly simple questions: how come these buildings once had a very good reputation? Who came up with their absurd form? And why are the towers actually being demolished? A story from the inside about housing, economy, poverty and personal fictions. At the intersection of architecture, urban development, history and design.
• Simon Allemeersch is a theatermaker and doctoral student at Ghent University, and is a member of the semi-permanent collective Lucinda Ra. He previously presented De brievenschijver/Letter home (in cooperation with Globe Aroma) and Grondwerk by Lucinda Ra in the Kaaitheater programme.
