Ylka and Thomas are having their house renovated. Two renovators have been at work for months, but the plans keep changing. The renovation becomes a metaphor for all the futile tinkering on a marriage that doesn’t work. De verbouwing is a sublime blend of humour and sorrow.
De Schpountz is a farce in which misunderstandings between a conceited young artist and a hardworking shopkeeper are settled amid the sausages and the Roquefort cheese. A piece of genuine, captivating folk theatre.
The diptych Manon and Jean van Florette tells the story of an urbanite who takes up residence in a village in le Midi. This ‘alien’ is not really welcome. Comp. Marius performs with a minimal set and a maximum of imagination, in the open air and by daylight.
In CRY, TROJANS! (Troilus & Cressida), The Wooster Group takes a decidedly American approach to the Trojan side of Shakespeare’s dark and scabrous Trojan War play. A vexing tale of sincere love corrupted and the downfall of a noble hero.
