Two men – both imprisoned in one way or another – want to live it up one last time. Begin the Beguine is the last text that the legendary filmmaker John Cassavetes ever wrote. The jet-black allegory about love and death was kept in a cupboard for 25 years by Cassavetes’ heirs. Until the German publisher S. Fischer Verlag asked Jan Lauwers to take on the staging of this masterpiece.

Since time immemorial, the idea of an island as a place of infinite possibilities has been a source of inspiration for writers and artists. In Crash Park, theatre-maker Philippe Quesne has written his own robinsonade. When the survivors of a plane crash emerge from the wreckage, they encounter the bizarre bestiary on a desert island. Epic scenes alternate with musical intermezzos, while this contemporary fable spotlights the greatness and the failings of the human race.
