Three performers and a DJ play a series of novel characters. From a young woman who is looking for her beloved who left to be a resistance fighter, to a weeping Iraqi taxi driver who collects stories about illnesses. Just like theatre, interviews often toy with the border between appearance and authenticity, and it is precisely this border that Khaled explores in his Scheherazade-esque story marathon.

Gravity, inertia, resistance, momentum, action, and reaction. These are the five fundamental mechanical principles of movement we must control in order to walk and dance. Forces of Nature follows the movements of a complex organism that is constituted of five dancers, each with their own energy and ideas. From their negotiations and questions flows a score.

‘How are you now?’ It is with this question that Rabot 2 begins. In 2010, Simon Allemeersch installed his workshop in one of the dilapidated social housing blocks in the Rabot neighbourhood in Ghent. Now he has made Rabot 2, in which he looks up the people he collaborated with at the time. Starting from individual testimonials, he zooms out to a bigger story about private and public wealth.

What does it do to someone to grow up without a warm and safe nest? For months, Kyoko Scholiers immersed herself in the world of youth care: she interviewed juvenile judges, foster families, child psychiatrists, educators, children and their parents... Based on all these experiences, she wrote the fictional play Boy. Joris Blanckaert's soundscape will be sung live by Opera Ballet Flanders' children's choir.

Wed 06.10 - Sun 10.10.21

For this ‘remake’ of Iemand van ons (2005), Tristero has mobilized a seasoned cast with plenty of life experience. Mark Verstraete, Bob De Moor, Kristin Arras, Sam Bogaerts, Mieke Verdin and Els Olaerts all get into a big bed together and talk about politics, love and life. With a great sense of humour, they ask one another personal questions, listen, toss and turn on the bed, and reveal their inner selves.
