13.02 – 15.02.2020

Around the conference table, we find:

the young actress Btissame Bourrich
the Russian actress Evgenia Brendes
the French stage actress Olga Mouak
the Palestinian actor and author Atta Nasser
Haider Al Timimi
, artistic director of the theatre company Kloppend Hert
the Moroccan dancer and choreographer Youness Khoukhou
the Brazilian dancer and actor Gustavo Vieira
the tg STAN members Jolente De Keersmaeker and Frank Vercruyssen

Around this table – on which poems, novels, and plays have been piling up for weeks – they build a shared story. The building blocks include the dialogues of the English playwright Dennis Kelly, a dull growling that expresses the sense of uneasiness in our society. Voices will rise above this, such as those of the characters created by the Egyptian author Alaa El Aswani. They speak of corruption, and of the economic, social and religious straitjacket in which they are imprisoned. They blend with voices from the work of the Palestinian Mahmoud Darwish or the Syrian playwright Saadallah Wannous, bursts of wild hope but simultaneously exclamations of shared powerlessness.

Move (on) is a choreography of bodies and texts. The piece probes the intersections between inner worlds and their external expressions, the point of friction between the individual and the group.

Damiaan De Schrijver, Bert Haelvoet and Matthias de Koning are moving into the medium of film. Where do film and theatre coalesce? Where do they clash and where do they enhance one another? Their exploration of these questions is based on a variety of source material, such as the interviews that Alfred Hitchcock gave to the likes of François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard.
