In 2020, Guy Cassiers is making two monologues: Antigone in Molenbeek (script: Stefan Hertmans) performed by Sachli Gholamalizad and Tiresias (script: Kate Tempest) performed by Katelijne Damen.
Both Nouria and Tiresias question order and authority, the boundaries and laws of patriarchal (Western) and society. From their position as ‘outsiders’, Nouria and Tiresias expose society’s repressed sexual, social and political prejudices.
In each of these productions, the setting is the same and the text is counterpointed by the music of Dimitri Shostakovich. With Tiresias, this is Symphony No. 8; with Antigone in Molenbeek, it is his last string quartet (No. 15).
We are presenting the two shows as a double bill in the Bourla (without a live orchestra). The double bill will additionally be presented in Ghent, Brussels and Rotterdam.
