(generally translated as the deep connection you feel when walking alone in the forest, this
word also stands for a feeling of insecurity in a dark and unpredictable space)
Benjamin Verdonck presents you the latest in his repertoire of mobile theatre shows.

A room turns into a room turns into a room turns into a black hole, an overripe piece of fruit.

Instantly become enchanted by this cabinet of curiosities, a baroque miniature with faded colours, little hatches that open and close, light, darkness and a whole lot of strings.

"And just like with a Rothko, I wonder how it’s possible for a dark area to radiate such light. It’s amazing how something small can be so powerful."

"A miniature 'cabinet of curiosities' made of wood with panels and drawers operated by strings. Using these objects, Verdonck shows us a series of basic theatre coordinates – entrances and exits, light and dark, big and small, near and far, colour and colourless, stage left and stage right – evoking a meditative state that draws you into a moving, abstract work of art loaded with meanings and associations."

Sara van der Kooi in Trouw **** , 6 August 2018

"With its sliding panels, the construction is reminiscent of a life-sized peep-show whose nature keeps changing due to the effects of light and an exciting soundscape."
