Jozef Wouters & Jeroen Peeters
The scenery workshop of the stage designer Jozef Wouters consists of a chaotic group of builders, thinkers, former sailors and a retired landscape painter. During the 2015-2016 season, they will simply use the ‘Koninklijke Vlaamse Kijkmachine’ for that which it was meant to be used: depicting other places. They enter into a dialogue with artists, scientists and journalists. How can we use delicate stage designs to shake up our view of the theatre and the world? In anticipation of this creation, Jozef Wouters will immerse himself further in the power of metaphors. As an official negotiator during the climate conference in Lima in December 2014, he started visualising the metaphors connected to the ecological and political discourse. During Working Title Situation #01, he will pursue their impact on the ways we depict the world around us, in conversation with Jeroen Peeters.
