Following the Weiblicher Akt series Maatschappij Discordia is launching a series about Love as it is described by women. In this first part, the company is exploring the work of Marguerite Duras (1914-1996). They let fragments from Duras’ novels resonate with personal stories to create a unique sketch of what love is and can be.

The unrelenting logic of profit and technological development have reduced human beings to disposable objects. The next step is making our environment completely uninhabitable. The new production by Kris Verdonk explores our physical and psychological state of being in light of an imminent extinction. The dancers are often not more than shadows in a landscape of blow-up sculptures, cello-noise, and a robotic drum.

A cloud of voices gathers in an imaginary museum. Their bodies are held up elsewhere, but here absent storytellers recount histories of hunting. Some of these voices are heard. Many are not. All are experts of a certain reality. During this actorless audio performance, you will hear snippets of Arabic, English, Farsi, French and Greek collected from around the Mediterranean. Sampling from hours of recordings, Simple as ABC #3: The Wild Hunt pieces together a many-voiced portrait of today’s humanhunt.

In the film Coup de torchon (1981), Bertrand Tavernier sketches a universe without God, in which the concepts of good and evil have no solid foundation. For this adaptation, Guy Cassiers is collaborating with the theatre collective LAZARUS. You can expect a combination between precise staging and rowdy playfulness, between literary seriousness and apparent flightiness.

William Gaddis is one of the most influential authors in American postmodern literature. His 1975 magnum opus JR is a complex and hilarious satire on capitalism. FC Bergman has opted for an ambitious adaptation that unmasks contemporary humanity. The company is building a sky-high set in the halls of Paleis12 at the Heizel, around which an extensive ensemble of actors will reconstruct the kaleidoscopic world of JR.
