STAN season 1516

après la répétition

in August 2015
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.

La Cerisaie

- premiere -

in September, October, November and December 2015
on tour in France

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.
performance in French

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.

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.

The story of the gradual breakup of a marriage, told in six episodes, over a twenty-year period, based on Ingmar Bergman's script Scenes from a Marriage which was originally a six-part series made for Swedish television. A portrayal of the main phases in a couple's life.
performance in French

at the Antwerpse Kleppers Festival

Serge, Marc and Yvan have been friends for fifteen years. Serge occasionally likes to splash out on modern art. Marc doesn’t. Yvan doesn’t feel strongly either way. Serge buys an all-white painting for 60,000 euros. Marc thinks this is absurd and makes his feelings known.  Caught in the middle, Yvan tries to patch things up but actually makes them worse. The question is: will the friendship survive?

Since of/niet in 2006, ten years ago, the four actors of STAN haven't created any performances with only the four of them. Now STAN is contemplating a new piece. No text has been chosen yet, but for the use of season's brochures and websites we provide you with this working title.
