The tiger eats the zebra and the bird, alarmed, takes off

Benjamin Verdonck

Continuing on the path he took with notallwhowanderarelost (2014) and Liedje voor Gigi (2018), here Benjamin Verdonck builds and operates an unusual planetarium of cardboard, adhesive tape and strings, assisted by Lucas Van Haesbrouck and the Toneelhuis decor studio.
a peep show
of the whole wide world
a big magic box
an opening dance
a human being an animal an object
side by side
an animal an object
an object a human being an animal
side by side
a last waltz
a room, another room
a tunnel, a narrow vista, a hole
a door
of course also a door
hatches that open and shut, colours that glide by,
surfaces that disappear
and strings, always strings
becoming a shape, a line, a point, a colour
becoming change,
hesitating, halting, starting over
becoming everything
we are the world we are the world we are the world
the show is a sad song
about human beings and the things that surround them
although the moon
(which also plays a role)
remains quite indifferent to it all
