De Brakke Grond (Rode zaal)

Kadrage is a wordless production as a trip, that draws on elements of visual art, performance and physical theatre, centred around an impressive structure. Thirty wooden frames symbolise an empty canvas, on which new pages, new perspectives and new challenges constantly appear. 

Within the confines of these frames, Jef Van gestel and Peter Vandemeulebroecke sketch out all the roles a whole life could contain: the child, the carer, the friend, the lover, the idiot, the prisoner, the released, the performer. Each frame acquires its own character by playing in succession with banal reality, dream images and with magical realism, making each frame an individual work of art.

In Kadrage, Jef Van gestel and Peter Vandemeulebroecke are both curator and performer. They search for a form of theatre that, as in an exhibition, communicates with the audience in an intuitive way. Starting each time with a white sheet, a new frame, they create an image that is beautiful, funny, fragile or intriguing. The scenes unfold as in a pop-up book.
