The Tip of the Tongue

In the 19th century, it was very common to attend astronomy performances. In an age of immense scientific progress, the planetarium was a refuge for both fact and fiction. This mingling of the heavenly and earthly produced cosmological narratives that made sense of the position of humankind and technology in a rapidly evolving world. Fast forward to 2019. Pieter De Buysser’s tale begins in Argentina while giving a lecture on the writer Letizia Álvarez de Toledo. High time to reinstate the astronomy performance! And where better place than at the Brussels Planetarium?

Jed Martin – the main character in Michel Houellebecq’s The Map and the Territory – was born near Paris in 1975. When he is forty years old, he writes a letter to his dead mother. She was as old as he was then, when she decided to take her own life. The combination of his words and his visual work results in a compelling self-portrait of a contemporary artist.

The young director Lisaboa Houbrechts is tackling Hamlet. She has opted for the female perspective, focusing on the destructive relationship between Hamlet and his mother Queen Gertrude. Houbrechts primarily aims to illustrate Gertrude’s innocence and thus to show the iconic play in a radically different light.
