The Channel - Theater aan het Vrijthof
On a beach near Calais a young refugee prepares himself to swim across the Channel, towards his new future.
The new text by author Gaea Schoeters is mirrored by recently recovered Shakespeare-text. Composer Annelies Van Parys uses the Shakespeare-text as a libretto for a cycle of songs, which set the refugee theme in a historical perspective.
Scenography by Anneleen De Causmaecker.
- the show is performed in Dutch but subtitled in English -
