Six actors on the stage and only one solo. There are no leading or secondary roles, but six simultaneous interpretations of the same script. How strictly will each actor comply with the stage directions? Will they allow one another a place in the spotlight? The Script focuses on acting, ánd on the existential loneliness that you sometimes feel in a group.

A cloud of voices gathers in an imaginary museum. Their bodies are held up elsewhere, but here absent storytellers recount histories of hunting. Some of these voices are heard. Many are not. All are experts of a certain reality. During this actorless audio performance, you will hear snippets of Arabic, English, Farsi, French and Greek collected from around the Mediterranean. Sampling from hours of recordings, Simple as ABC #3: The Wild Hunt pieces together a many-voiced portrait of today’s humanhunt.

In the film Coup de torchon (1981), Bertrand Tavernier sketches a universe without God, in which the concepts of good and evil have no solid foundation. For this adaptation, Guy Cassiers is collaborating with the theatre collective LAZARUS. You can expect a combination between precise staging and rowdy playfulness, between literary seriousness and apparent flightiness.

William Gaddis is one of the most influential authors in American postmodern literature. His 1975 magnum opus JR is a complex and hilarious satire on capitalism. FC Bergman has opted for an ambitious adaptation that unmasks contemporary humanity. The company is building a sky-high set in the halls of Paleis12 at the Heizel, around which an extensive ensemble of actors will reconstruct the kaleidoscopic world of JR.

Unfortunately, we have to cancel all shows due to the refusal of visas for the Congolese actors/dancers.

 

What is theatre? What do emotions and history signify on the stage? Faustin Linyekula shows his personal perspective on the history of dance and theatre in Africa. To what extent does the past define the present and even the future? Accompanied by music by Ray Lema, he challenges the basic techniques of “real theatre”.
