‘It’s a misty day in autumn, and my surroundings have vanished into the haze. Later in the morning the air clears and I can again see further; trees and houses assume sharper outlines. By noon the sun finally breaks through, the clouds disperse and the horizon expands into the distant line in which all things are united in a great whole: the world has become a landscape.’ (from Filosofie van het Landschap by Ton Lemaire, AMBO)
Following the success of An Old Monk, Josse De Pauw and Kris Defoort, Lander Gyselinck and Nicolas Thys are joining each other on stage again. As a child, our ‘landscape’ may be our bedroom, or a corner of grandma and grandpa’s attic, a place where we play and discover things. As an adult, the landscape may mean the quiet of the countryside and the bustle of the city, or just the opposite. Josse De Pauw is giving a voice to our landscape.
