With Kuiperskaai, Lisaboa Houbrechts has made among other things De Schepping/The Creation (2013), The Goldberg Chronicles (2014), The Winter’s Tale (2016) and 1095 (2017). She evokes history and classical repertoire in the form of a ritual, and reveals human nature as a series of passionate urges. The press called The Goldberg Chronicles “an immense clash of energies” and “the language is the colour, the acting is the picture, the music is the paint.” In 2016 she made a huge impression with her sparking adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale (2016). In september 2017 the new production by Lisaboa Houbrechts and Kuiperskaai 1095, after a text by Victor Lauwers, had its premiere: “Lots of daring and performing pleasure…” (Lotte Philipsen in Knack). In season 2018-2019 Lisaboa worked on her own version of Hamlet. Approaching this play from the female perspective, she positions Gertrude, Hamlet’s mother, at the heart of the production (premiere: September 2018 at the Love at First Sight festival).
