notes about the thoughts of a theatre spectator

 

Over the years, Tibaldus rehearsals have produced not only shows but also a succession of notes about the thoughts of a theatre spectator: spectators’ monologues, poetical narrations which reveal a single-minded view of theatre and actors.

Theatre magazine Etcetera has already published a few of these texts. Now they are presented – not staged – as part of a new installation, Unstaged Theatre.

On stage, three older actors.

They’ve only just got there, but they are acting, they are acting!

as if they have been there for hours and hours.

They do this so well that I fall off my seat.

I find myself wanting to apologize

and if this wasn’t theatre,

I would have apologized.

It was a strange feeling,

as if I and all the other spectators in the auditorium

had arrived late.

They are acting!

I calm down, because I know I arrived in time.

The ticket said eight o’clock and it’s exactly five past eight.
