In MEMENTO MORI!, documentary filmmaker and visual artist Els Dietvorst brings two solos together. The first is performed by Dirk Roofthooft, one of Flanders’ most iconic actors, the second by the Brussels-based actress Aurelie Di Marino. The first monologue mirrors the second. As a diptych, they reflect on themes such as individualism, globalization and migration, as well as the alienation and disenchanted world to which they lead.

In MEMENTO MORI!, documentary filmmaker and visual artist Els Dietvorst brings two solos together. The first is performed by Dirk Roofthooft, one of Flanders’ most iconic actors, the second is performed by the Brussels-based actress Aurelie Di Marino. You can expect a theatre evening about fragility and transience, but also about universal themes like individualization, globalization, the relationship between humanity and nature, and migration.

Wed 21.11 - Thu 22.11.18

In this beautiful philosophical and ecological fable, Ivana Müller reflects on a world dictated by humanity. She starts from our relationship with nature. Four human beings wander around an unusual and slightly absurd universe. The trust, symbiosis, tensions, and ruptures between the four walkers and one mysterious plant create an intriguing ecosystem. Their manipulations, interventions, and the rubbish they leave behind slowly but surely create a Romantic tableau.

Like an engineer at a control panel, Benjamin Verdonck conjures a visual elegy on the stage. From a sequence of miniature landscapes to an endless series of panels that appear and disappear, open and close. Accompanied by two musicians, Verdonck gradually gets lost in his own images.

What starts as a lecture about Benjamin Verdonck’s new book even i must understand it enjoyably derails into a production that introduces you to one or more table stages. He presents a playful guide to the winding road from his studio to the stage, using stories, photos, films, a little theatre in a box, a cat, and music.

Five figures form a portrait of humanity in the insane twentieth century, awaiting the inevitable catastrophe. Wars, simmering conflicts, terrorism, ecological disasters… an ever-greater number of possible endings present themselves. Despite the shock, they continue to talk, perform, and play music.

Experience what lies at the root of human contact, and how a group can come together in a very direct way. To look at one another without speaking is highly intense. This encounter is based on the annual meeting of Inuit leaders, which is conducted without speaking.

Caspar Western Friedrich combines the narrative force of the Western with the dreamy longings of Romanticism. Drawing his inspiration from the lonesome cowboy and from the paintings and personality of Caspar David Friedrich, Philippe Quesne builds a studio of landscapes on stage.

The American quantum physicist David Bohm takes as his premise the self-regulating way in which a group of people functions. You never think alone, but are always linked to the thinking of others. Thus a discussion is the ideal place in which to research and maintain the patterns of this collective thinking – without a moderator.

The Indians of Canada’s Great Lakes let go of short-term thinking in order to move amongst the generations that came before them and that will come after them. Are we capable of doing the same thing, rather than taking a decision that solely takes account of its impact on the present?

Inspired by the theory of Bruno Latour and by Aboriginal rituals, you question the relationship between people and things. Is it acceptable for us to speak in the name of things? Or might another relationship conceivably be created, in which we abandon the anthropocentric point of view and see the future from the things’ perspective?

EXTRA SHOW 5/12! - Pieter Ampe and Benjamin Verdonck bring a disruptive concertante of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. On stage, the seasons pass by, but the sequence is not always as it should be. The marvellous, endless epilogue that follows leaves you feeling orphaned and defenceless.

In one more thing, Benjamin Verdonck conjures up a 60cm x 60cm x 60cm-sized miniature theatre out of a suitcase. He assembles an abstract graphic fantasy that glides by in a diorama of a single square meter. The result is a mobile, musical, miniature fifteen-minute performance for fifteen people.

In Into the Big World we experience a world where everything is observed, named, categorised and therefore domesticated. Gradually however knowledge becomes more complex as the world presents itself as a a system where everything is connected to everything. Can we still capture the world in a single encyclopaedic overview?

Fri 28.11 - Sat 29.11.14

The theatre-maker Pieter De Buysser is increasingly emerging as a teller of mythical stories which for an instant turn our view of things upside down. What might he have to tell us about the myth of Progress, now that it is being overshadowed by ecological disasters and increasing social inequality?
