Kunstminnende heeren

Kunstminnende heeren (Art-loving gentlemen) is Olympique Dramatique's first shot at its own theatre script.

The title is borrowed from Schiller's play Wallenstein but that is where the similarities end, except that the words "art-loving gentlemen" fired their imagination enough for them to write a play set in the art world. The setting is a cultural talk show in which presenters Rudi Latoer and Joe Fok welcome artists to the studio, each with their own barmy desires, visions and definitions of what art is or should be. In each case we see a number of artists working live on a painting, performance, installation, etc.

Olympique Dramatique has already had a wonderful opportunity to explore the borders of absurdism in Ionesco's De Kale Zangeres (The Bald Soprano); now they go a step further down this road, this time wielding the pen themselves. Inspired by the drawings of Roland Topor, the play The Insect Trainer by Timothy Carey and Extras by Ricky Gervais, and with "plays written under the influence are influential plays" as their battle cry, Olympique Dramatique invites us into the bizarre artsy-fartsy world of the Kunstminnende heeren.

Nieuws over ‘Kunstminnende heeren’

Video — 11 May 2015

Het vertrekt toch altijd van een straffe tekst

David Verdeure runt Manitoba Audiovisuele Producties. Een tiental jaar geleden maakte hij de ATV-trailers voor Toneelhuis, o.a. voor de voorstellingen van Olympique Dramatique. Hij kent het werk van het viertal dus van dichtbij. Hij vroeg expliciet om de mannen te mogen interviewen op de rekwisietenzolder van de Bourla. Stijn Van Opstal is op dat moment op tournee met Carrara van Studio Orka, maar de drie andere Olympiquers tekenen present. En ze hebben er zin in.
