De Macht der Theaterlijke Dwaasheden


De Macht der Theaterlijke Dwaasheden

Jan Fabre / Troubleyn

In 1984, The Power of Theatrical Madness was Jan Fabre's international breakthrough. 30 years later, Fabre reconstructs his theatre marathon scene by scene, movement by movement, with a new generation of performers. 

Our zeitgeist of speed, stress and new media makes the performance even more radical today than it was back then. 'We deal with the physical body in a different way now, and our knowledge of time has changed', says Jan Fabre. 'That way, the performance has become even more substantial and essential'. 

In March 2015, STUK looks back. A book and an exhibition tell the history of the arts centre. Another part of the project is a memory lane with a couple of random benchmarks in our rich artistic output - this performance is one of them.
