stay / away is a performance by tine embrechts and frank vercruyssen, taking its cue from the short story plumes de bécasse by greek author thanassis valtinos (b. 1932).

plumes de bécasse: woodcock feathers or down or fluff or the feathers or feathers of a woodcock or of the woodcock or of woodcocks

a short story written as a dialogue between a man and a woman.
she's called rania, he's yanis.
they're married, they've been married for about seven years.
she wants a divorce,
he doesn't.
she's quite insufferable.
he's even more so.
their dealings can't truthfully be called peaceful.

tg STAN speelt "blijf/weg"

Two actors on a stage looking around and exchanging meaningless comments which suggest unspoken emotions - much theatre derives from this description. The power of blijf /weg ( stay / away ) is that it delves courageously beneath the surface of the language. 
STAN's war of words , De Standaard, Mark Cloostermans, 17/11/08 

A couple on the stage. The uncertainty which will lodge itself ever deeper in their relationship, immediately sets in. It is not long before the conversation which began with "I love you" turns into a veritable tirade of abuse and effortlessly escalates to taunts like "I'll shit in your face", "Blood is going to flow" and, even stronger, "I'm going to murder somebody"!
STAN plays blijf / weg , Zone 03, Sanne Nuyens, 17/11/08

Separation causes suffering, but staying together can mean mutual destruction. The partners in Plumes de bécasse , a novella by the Greek writer Thanassis Valtinos, cheerfully wring each other's neck with words. ... If theatre serves a socio-therapeutic purpose, here you see it at work at full throttle.
tg STAN blijf / weg , De Morgen, Wouter Hillaert, 20/11/08
