Move (on)

13.02 – 15.02.2020

The building blocks of Move (on) include the dialogues of the English playwright Dennis Kelly, a dull growling that expresses the sense of uneasiness in our society. Voices will rise above this, such as those of the characters created by the Egyptian author Alaa El Aswani. They speak of corruption, and of the economic, social and religious straitjacket in which they are imprisoned. They blend with voices from the work of the Palestinian Mahmoud Darwish or the Syrian playwright Saadallah Wannous, bursts of wild hope but simultaneously exclamations of shared powerlessness.

This curated Beckett evening presents a surprising mix of forms: a monologue by Johan Leysen; an academic lecture about memory, neurology, machines and consciousness; a video installation with an immersive (post-)apocalyptic landscape; and a concert. Through this combination, Kris Verdonck explores a fascination that he shares with Beckett, namely technology and the increasing conflict between humans and machines.

In Out Of Order, the latest show by the British theatre company Forced Entertainment, we see an alley of clowns around a table. Each quiet moment is charged with the next conflictual explosion. Comedy and tragedy go hand in hand in the figure of the clown, but considering these times of political and climatological crises, a clown’s presence onstage is no coincidence, says Tim Etchells, director of Forced Entertainment.
