The LOD composer Daan Janssens and director Fabrice Murgia are tackling the existential issues in Louis Paul Boon’s novel.
On stage we see an architect and a photographer. He is busy with his self-designed models, she takes photographs and projects them. The audience witnesses both the craftsmanlike way the image comes into being and the result that this yields. As technicians of the imagination, Steve Salembier and Charlotte Bouckaert of Atelier Bildraum tinker with their world before the audience’s eyes. A world that gradually takes shape to the music of Thomas Smetryns, played by Jakob Ampe and Benjamin Dousselaere.
A man and a woman read each other’s diaries and are both aware of it. In fact they deliberately leave their keys lying around. They communicate with each other through their diaries about things that ought not to be openly revealed, and guide each other in their mutual secret desires.
