Belgian Rules / Belgium Rules — Jan Fabre & Troubleyn


  • 19.30 Concertzaal
  • 23.15 Expected end time
  • 18.45 Introduction by Edith Cassiers


Jan Fabre dissects his homeland: a total spectacle, with dance, music and text

Just as Fellini made an ode to his city with Roma, so too does Fabre want to bring on ode to his country. He wants to share the crazy fun of our culture with the whole world. It is not the fringes of society that Fabre shows, but the irony, which never becomes cynical. Instead he glorifies the subversive power of our imagination. Belgian Rules / Belgium Rules is Fabre's theatrical 'selfie' of his roots. Musician Raymond van het Groenewoud provides the accompanying songs. Johan de Boose provides the text.
