Abattoir Fermé [Mechelen]
Moe maar op en dolend
Twin Peaks served pure
The Abattoir Fermé collective from Mechelen has in a very short time become one of the most talked-about companies in Flanders. They appeared at the Kaaitheater Studios in 2004 with their piece Galapagos, which was selected for the theatre festival. In April 2007 the Beursschouwburg and Kaaitheater will be presenting Tinseltown and Testament respectively, but first it’s Moe maar op en dolend (Tired, but up and wandering).
This is a piece of typical performance theatre: hardly a word is spoken, and it’s all power to the image! In this grotesque nightmare the eccentric characters display their most horrible side. They show without the slightest hesitation things you would probably have preferred to suppress. The play flirts with horror, David Lynch, serial killers and film noir. Raw and poetic images alternate at a rapid pace, taking your breath away and burning into your retina. The soundtrack by KRENG accompanies the performance like an intriguing basso continuo to which the images are attached.
