JURY SELECTION – What does scenography mean today? What kinds of places or landscapes are relevant in this era? Jozef Wouters established a temporary Decoratelier – a motley crew of builders, thinkers, former sailors, and a retired landscape painter – to find answers on these questions. Unfortunately, this production cannot be reprised. Jozef Wouters and Jeroen Peeters are collaborating with the TheaterFestival to publish the script of the play with the De Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek. The first edition will be presented during an official book presentation at the TheaterFestival.. De eerste druk wordt gepresenteerd tijdens een officieel moment op het TheaterFestival.
