In Cinema Dialogue, Monika Gintersdorfer and Knut Klaßen critically examine the United Nations’ ostensibly apolitical Millennium Development Goals. They juxtapose the universalism of the UN programme with the local reality of urban development in Kinshasa between 2000 and the present day.

Thu 20.04 - Sat 22.04.17

When you read, you make choices. You translate what you read into the language of your life. A book like Tolstoi’s Anna Karenina could also be the collection of lives it has changed, for better or for worse. In this first play Tiago Rodrigues writes for tg STAN, he convincingly builds a bridge between the actors of the Portuguese Teatro Nacional and those of STAN.

NEW MIDDLE EAST

production

Tue 02.05.17

A masked soldier starts talking to the woman he is burying alive. This dialogue between victim and perpetrator gradually becomes absurd. The young Palestinian director Bashar Murkus confronts you both with a fictionalized reflection of the war in Syria and with a vision of the totalitarian violence that holds the Middle East in its grip.

Sat 06.05 - Mon 08.05.17

A philanthropist endowed with immense faith in progress and a speech defect undertakes to build a spacecraft. The Tip of the Tongue is an exploration of borders for nationalists, a local geography lesson for cosmopolitans and a cosmology lecture for pioneers of a new image of the world.

Wed 24.05 - Sat 27.05.17

Simple as ABC #2: Keep Calm & Validate is a documentary musical theatre performance about the digitization of migration management and the outsourcing of our unease about social sorting. For this second part Bellinck strikes up many different conversations with border and data managers in the control rooms and at the liquid fringes of Project Europe.

Elfriede Jelinek wrote Die Schutzbefohlenen in 2013 as a reaction to the increasingly desperate refugee problem in Europe. Her text has proved to be more than prophetic: all the images that are now burnt into our memories she minutely calls to life years before the actual events. Guy Cassiers matches Jelinek’s torrent of words with images and with four dancers in a choreography by Maud Le Pladec.

In 1993 Jolente De Keersmaeker and Damiaan De Schrijver, together with Julien Schoenaerts, created Gewoon Ingewikkeld, based on Einfach Kompliziert by Thomas Bernhard. It was inevitable that Bernhard would continue to be one of STAN’s fellow travellers. Now the theatre company presents three Bernhard adaptations as a trilogy: a true Bernhard marathon that is around six hours long.

History is written by winners. Including all the lies, chance encounters, and accidents de parcours. With this realization in mind, Jan Lauwers and Needcompany travel through time by way of the family trees of all the members. After an international tour – and being selected for the TheatreFestival 2016 – The blind poet is returning to the place where it premiered: the Kaaitheater.
