HOUSE

In this two-part production, Josse De Pauw presents an adaptation of The Strange Rider and The women at the tomb, two tragicomic stories by Belgian author Michel de Ghelderode (1898-1962). Jan Kuijken composed the music for a large orchestra in the studio.

His composition was woven with the soundscape into a film score for theatre. In the first part, the words violently force their way through the music, in order – in the second part – to be carried by almost fluid vocal melodies.

A music theatre piece, sometimes grotesque, sometimes extremely fragile. A biblical puppet show.
