Joost Vandecasteele, Gwendolyn Rutten & Pascal Smet [BE]




Confusing times

Come and see this: Joost Vandecasteele has written a speech for Gwendolyn Rutten and Pascal Smet, and these two politicians will present it live at the Kaaitheater. As a bonus Vandecasteele will himself perform a short version of Otaku, his apocalyptic comedy show that premiered at Spoken World 2009 and was selected for the 2010 Theatre Festival.

• This is all the author has to say about his new project. Vandecasteele is a theatre-maker, writer, stand-up comedian and one or two other things. Later in the season he will be coming to launch his new book, his third. The working title is: Dismantling a Human Machine.

‘Vandecasteele produces a new sound, at the place where comedy, theatre and Powerpoint performance meet.’ – De Morgen ****

‘Please let this voice be heard.’ – De Standaard
