DE BEVRIJDING VAN
codirected by Thomas Bellinck & Khalid Koujili El Yakoubi
2022 / HETPALEIS (Antwerp)
Invited by youth theatre hetpaleis, Thomas Bellinck and Khalid Koujili El Yakoubi are collaborating on their first performance for a young audience. Theater maker and author Pieter De Buysser is writing a beast fable for a wild bunch of actors.
'De Bevrijding van het Edelhert' ('The Liberation of the Red Deer') paints an absurdly humorous and painfully recognisable picture of an Ardennes forest where not every animal is equally welcome. Where fences are being erected in a hurry and where providing assistance to undesirable animals is punishable by caging.
Ages 9 years and up.
