In 1993 Jolente De Keersmaeker and Damiaan De Schrijver, together with Julien Schoenaerts, created Gewoon Ingewikkeld, based on Einfach Kompliziert by Thomas Bernhard. It was inevitable that Bernhard would continue to be one of STAN’s fellow travellers. Now the theatre company presents three Bernhard adaptations as a trilogy: a true Bernhard marathon that is around six hours long.

How do you facilitate a good discussion between opponents? The Agonistic Conversation was developed as a reaction to the philosopher Chantal Mouffe. She speaks about the importance of conflict in the political arena, and the way in which the Maori deal with conflict within their own community.

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.

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.

Forced Entertainment performs Shakespeare’s complete works in only six days. In 36 mini plays that are as funny and fascinating as they are accessible, the theatre pioneers demonstrate their impressive storytelling power yet again. The cast? Everyday home, garden, and kitchen objects. The stage? A one-metre table top.

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?
