Op 21, 22 & 23 april 2016 was Benjamin Verdonck te gast op de 51ste editie van het SMALL THEATRE FORMS FESTIVAL KONTRAPUNKT 2016 in Szczecin (Polen) met notallwhowanderarelost en one more thing. Zijn passage bleef niet onopgemerkt.
a mobile miniature show for twenty people that lasts 14 minutes suitable for sitting-rooms, parish halls, festival cafés and dark forests inspired by a sentence from Cesare Pavese’s novel Il diavolo sulle colline (The Devil in the Hills)
a show-box that fits into a wooden case
a different musician every evening
words that glide past coloured areas
strings, elastic bands
curtains that open and close
one more thing has been presented in Belgium, Austria, France, Portugal, Italy, Latvia, Slovenia, Lithuania and in Szczecin, Poland, where Verdonck received the Zygmunt Duczyński Award for Most Striking Artistic Personality at the Small Theatre Forms festival KONTRAPUNKT 2016: “for consequence in creating autonomous artistic expression and original theatrical language based on minimalistic means of expression, a language which seduces us.”
_ _ _
A short miniature road show for small audiences that can pop up anywhere at any moment – living rooms, parochial halls, festival cafes, dark woods. Its small scale is deliberate, an attentive gesture inspired by an awareness of the ecological catastrophe, a concern that has been present in Verdonck’s work for some time.
