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...?
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.
A spectacular location project in the new Court of Justice during the Summer of Antwerp! Mr. Hoffmann is a respected teacher with a nice family. One day he’s arrested. One secret after another comes to light. The family is under pressure and everyone must take sides. Who can still believe whom? Who’s lying and who’s telling the truth? 150 spectators can attend the trial from the first row in the new Antwerp Court of Justice. From Mr. Hoffmann’s arrest to the courtroom apotheosis.
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.
