TO BE OR NOT TO BE ME

TO BE OR NOT TO BE ME
TO BE OR NOT TO BE ME

This season opens with the question of how authenticity resonates in our own biotope: the theatre. Where is the border between sincerity and ‘mendacity’ onstage? What is the relationship between embodying a character and the involvement of one’s own self in doing so? How do autobiographical elements contribute to an artwork? And how credible is an actor or director who speaks from their own experience?

Jed Martin – the protagonist in a novel by Michel Houellebecq – presents himself as the director and actor in a production about his own life. Using objects, documents and stories, Katja Dreyer attempts to reconstruct the life of her late aunt. For Juan Domínguez, the stage is a place where personal memories can adopt literal forms
