Last season, Tibaldus presented an energetic adaptation of Yvonne, Princess of Burgundy by Witold Gombrowicz at Kaaitheater. They are now staging another play by the Polish author. In Yvonne, the prince rebelled against the court by expressing his desire to marry the repulsive Yvonne. But the plan backfired and the bride didn’t survive. In The Marriage, the prince goes even further. He aims to dethrone the ruling power, the ruling ‘Form’, and become king himself. By strengthening his position in the palace through marriage, a war breaks out outside the palace walls, but nobody knows if it is real. Tibaldus enhances the musicality of Gombrowicz’ play by connecting textual motifs with Flemish polyphonic melodies. They are again presenting a surprising take on an unconventional repertoire!
