The Tip of the Tongue

theatre

The Tip of the Tongue
The Tip of the Tongue

A philanthropist endowed with immense faith in progress and a speech defect undertakes to build a spacecraft. The story traverses a pronounced curve in space-time, a little girl tired of the Messiah and a lost detective who no one is looking for anymore. The Tip of the Tongue does not attempt to map the world: it draws a different map. And all that in 11 dimensions, with 11 fables, in six times 11 minutes.

Autoportrait/Zelfportret

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.

Who are we really and can we ever be who we really are? In this social media age, we risk disappearing behind the image that others have of us. But the urge or authenticity is not new.

My Only Memory

You can only observe changes with hindsight. Indeed, the present and the past are diametrically opposed: we realize that we have arrived somewhere, but we don’t know how we got there. That is precisely what My Only Memory is: a retrospective, knowing that nothing will ever be the same.

Being in Playing
Being in Playing

In 2014, Jan Steen obtained his doctorate in the arts with a dissertation on the dramaturgy of the actor: Being in Playing. He argues, among other things, that the specific presence of an actor determines the specific result of a role – and by extension of a show.. How does the actor relate to the role? And how does authenticity interact with alterity?

Hamlet
Hamlet

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.
