In the growing series Simple as ABC, Thomas Bellinck focuses on the Western migration management machine. This third instalment takes you to an imagined museum where there are only voices. You hear scraps of Arabic, English, Farsi, French, and Greek, gathered around the Mediterranean Sea. The absent narrators share their stories and thus sketch a many-voiced portrait of the contemporary hunt for humans.

For this adaption of Bertrand Tavernier’s film Coup de Torchon (1981), Guy Cassiers is collaborating with the theatre collective LAZARUS – a confrontation between scenographic precision and rowdy playfulness. The creators are serving an uncomfortable fable about the moral bankruptcy of a society that looks very much like our own. It is a universe full of grotesque characters that teeter on the edge of the abyss.

Get to know the latest generation of theatre-makers. In June, three theatre students from the RITCS will be presenting their graduation productions at the Kaaistudios. Not mine and other stories invites you to take a seat at the table. A table at which stories of a generation of twenty-somethings pass by. Young people with an opinion, who coincidently cross each other’s path in the city. Or is there more to it than coincidence?

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.
