The boundary between spectator and performer fades

Wed 08.12 - Thu 09.12.21

In Conference of the Absent, invited experts and speakers do not appear physically on stage, but are embodied by locals who only receive the script at the beginning of the evening. In this performance you will observe how the people of Brussels take on the identity of absent speakers. Without CO2 emissions or bad Skype and Zoom connections, but with all the performative means of the theatre, contradictory propositions about globalisation collide in the theatre space. Maybe you will manage to take on a role?

Thu 24.03 - Fri 25.03.22

In Flemish Primitives, Action Zoo Humain shines a new light on flashy talent shows and the social engineering of success. Under the watchful eye of the public, eight young Flemish people – who only share a desire for success and a migrant background – undergo a series of experiments. Who perpetuates the belief in the survival of the fittest?

Wed 05.02 - Thu 06.02.20

An expedition to the source of the Styx has taken Karen Røise Kielland and Katja Dreyer to the heart of Greek mythology. They breathe new life into an old myth through numerous encounters with local residents and their stories about the river. The performance begins with multiplicity and chaos, but the closer to the source, the more order and monochrome silence begin to surface.

TALK SHOW
TALK SHOW
Wed 22.01.20

The first talk shows aired in the 1950s and they have determined the evening rhythm in many living rooms ever since. But the invention of the internet has definitively pushed the format into decline. In TALK SHOW, Suze Milius bids them farewell. It is both a retrospective and a look ahead into the future, an attempt to ascribe value to everything that gradually disappears, and an ode to the details of our existence.

THIS CAN'T HAPPEN
Thu 29.03.18

In a stimulating theatrical game, you as the audience explore the limits of the imaginable, beyond what is true, good, or politically correct. Can the most cheerful, strange, improbable, and wild fantasies influence the world that we share together? The stakes in the game? To make time and space for our own imagination.

Fri 10.11 - Sun 26.11.17

Imagine that you could be somebody else just for a moment. In HOUSE, you are invited to an unknown location. Due to the unexpected situations in which you find yourself, as a viewer you can no longer continue to observe things from the side-lines: there is no place to hide. Without any coercion but in a completely natural, surreal way, you become part of a new ‘home’.

Sat 11.11 - Sun 26.11.17

Imaginons qu’on puisse être autrui le temps d’un instant. Dans HUIS, on est invité dans un lieu inconnu. En raison de la situation inattendue dans laquelle on aboutit, on ne peut plus assister en spectateur depuis la ligne de touche : il n’y a nulle part où se cacher. Sans aucune pression, de manière totalement naturelle, quasi surréaliste, on devient un élément d’un nouveau « chez-soi ».
