Compagnie Marius [BE]
23.06 – 24.06.2015
Sausages and Roquefort cheese
We conclude the season with a piece of genuine, captivating folk theatre by Comp. Marius from Antwerp.
De Schpountz is a farce in which misunderstandings between a conceited young artist and a hardworking shopkeeper are settled amid the sausages and the Roquefort cheese.
Since 1999, Waas Gramser and Kris Van Trier have adapted five works by the French writer Marcel Pagnol (1895-1974). They have staged these performances as far afield as Marseille. Anyone who comes from Marseille knows Pagnol’s work by heart – and here too, in this most Pagnol-minded part of France, audiences were captivated.
Comp. Marius performs with a minimal set and a maximum of imagination, in the open air and by daylight. Thus surrendering to the unpredictability of the weather gods. You too surely?
