Onvoltooid Verleden

"I am the dog that once having eaten human flesh has to be put down."

In 2007 Olympique Dramatique and Guy Cassiers made a stage adaptation of De geruchten (The Rumours), the successful novel Hugo Claus wrote in 1996. In 1998 Claus produced a sequel, Onvoltooid verleden (Unfinished History), which Olympique Dramatique is staging in 2012. The play is set several decades later, in a large city far from the village of Alegem. Whereas De geruchten revolved around René Catrijsse, this time the protagonist is his brother Noël. As a child Noël suffered brain damage as the result of a fall. He is now questioned by former police commissioner Blaute at his own request. What follows is a harsh account of a damaged and damned soul. The play is performed by Jan Decleir and Tom Dewispelaere.

"Pure actors’ theatre, of the kind you rarely see."

Yves Desmet in De Morgen , 21 April 2012

"You have to see this.  Onvoltooid verleden is perfect actors’ theatre with a brilliant ending."

Els Van Steenberghe in Knack **** , 23 April 2012

"Essential narrative and listening theatre with two first-rate actors and no multimedia hocus-pocus."

Roeland de Trazignies in Cobra.be *** , 20 April 2012
