BigMoutH offered a platform to leaders through history and from across the world, people who invariably spurred masses on to war: praising the fallen, and smooth-talking to their families and loved ones. SmallWaR shifts the focus from statesmen and commanders to the small fry and the effects of stirring words.
CLOSER promises to be a special theatrical experience: the Bourla is transformed into an intimate arena where audiences and actors are almost on each other's lips. Armed with your own smartphone or tablet you can follow the players’ every sigh and movement as if they are standing next to you. Your second screen enriches the theatrical reality in real time. This is how, armed to the teeth, you witness the battle between these four characters.
Against the background of the current economic crisis and today's mediatised world, SKaGeN looks back on the life and work of the CCC, operating from facts as well as lies and fantasy. CCC, THE FAT YEARS ARE OVER, is based on documentary material about the Cellules Communistes Combattantes, a revolutionary group that committed 25 attacks against capitalist targets in Belgium between 1982 and 1985.
Nine years after date SKaGeN resumed their graduation project, which they’d made under the guidance of theatre maker Peter van den Eede (De Koe). The title, IO (to be read as the binary numbers 1 and 0), refers to the biotope in which this comedy is set: an environment in which human emotions and actions are analysed in all their measurable components. The non-measurable is, however, creeping back through a fascinating back door.
Alma Mahler lived in the turbulent first half of the 20th century. She was a composer, wife to Mahler, Gropius and Werfel, mistress to Kokoschka, Klimt, Zemlinski, and Alban Berg’s muse. She also inspired the renowned theatre collective SKaGeN into a catchy story about human pride and loneliness in a mixture of theatre and music. ‘Almschi! The best of Alma Mahler’ is a theatre production by SKaGeN & Octopus Soloists. This performance was created as part of Ostend Cultural City of Flanders 2010 and with support of the Flemish Government.
The play is set in a brightly lit room of what turns out to be a hospital. Budge does his Tai Chi exercises while trying to talk to Wyatt, with little result. They are soon visited by fellow patients. Or are they members of the medical staff? In any case they seem to come from the neighbouring psychiatric wing. But there is doubt about everything and everyone. Is anyone what he claims to be...?
