Festival Les Rencontres Inattendues in Tournai
At the end of August Frank Vercruyssen will be a guest of the Festival Les Rencontres Inattendues, invited by the French philosopher Bernard Stiegler because of STAN’s way of working, i.e. with the emphasis on ‘improvization without improvization’. The show Après la répétition will not be performed in its original form, but serve as a case study in an artistic and philosophical reflection on improvization.

This autumn STAN will be travelling to France with La Cerisaie, the French version of Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard. The Cherry Orchard, as intangible as life itself, has us stop and reflect on the point of the pointless, on pragmatic thinking, on the blind zest for life and on finiteness and hope.

on tour in France
This autumn Damiaan De Schrijver (STAN), Gillis Biesheuvel (Dood Paard), Matthias de Koning (Maatschappij Discordia), Peter Van den Eede and Willem de Wolf (de KOE) will be touring their polycoproduction extensively in France. A dramatized poetry evening in five acts. A Dadaist-inspired show punctuated with situation humour, non-dialogues, poetry and onomatopoeia. A plea for illogicality.

in Thessalonica (Greece)
Trahisons ('Betrayal') tells the story of a classic three-cornered relationship in which a woman has been cheating on her husband for seven years by having an affair with his best friend. Playwright, scriptwriter and Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter wrote this play in 1978. As if with a scalpel, he exposes the pride and longings, the lies and weaknesses of his characters.
