Wereldtournee / Tussenstop

Benjamin Verdonck, Toneelhuis

I am going to be performing in Antwerp for an entire year. 

I've spent a long time thinking up,

making, collecting and packing 

things that are small and manageable,

stuff that I can easily take with me

and show to people, no matter where.

now I want to go on an exploratory journey with these things, an adventure.

I want to meet people, bring my work to them, tell stories 

and then tell them stories about the stories I've told.

 

I have the suspicion that all of the cities 

in which I usually show my work,  the whole circuit,

can be found in this city. 

an exercise in not giving in to the idea

that you have to be everywhere simply and purely

because you can be everywhere. 

developing a knack for accidentally 

having useful encounters and making discoveries.

a licence to be free, perhaps, 

continually moving between

studio and city, city and theatre, theatre and studio.

With World Tour Benjamin Verdonck is taking another step in his exploration of fluid forms of theatre that evade the tension between making and showing, between local and international. Along the way, Verdonck will be making a stop at the Bourla to present an evening-long programme from his steadily expanding repertoire of peepshows, collages, table-top shows with strings, placards, and ensembles in boxes that accompany him on his journey.
