Moore Bacon!

Kobe Chielens, Bosse Provoost

A play of light reveals a naked body, floating in a dark space.

 The body is torn apart and assumes impossible shapes: it stretches, contracts, and bursts apart, only to subsequently present itself to us in a new shape. 

Moore Bacon! constantly tricks the spectator’s eye. Every perception is an act of creation. With Moore Bacon!, Kobe Chielens and Bosse Provoost captured the TAZ-KBC Young Theatre Award 2016 and The Debut Award at the ITs Festival 2016 in Amsterdam.

The fact that such a production, which prioritizes time and sensory perception above instantly consumable theatre, has received several awards in a short period of time (the IYMA Award, Het Debuut Award at the ITs Festival and the Jongtheaterprijs at Theater Aan Zee), is a wonderful and hopeful sign.
