Song for Gigi - Benjamin Verdonck

15/03/2018 - 18/03/2018

A dark night, a house burning, the planets, doors that open and close and at the end, a song: puisque la terre est ronde mon amour, t’en fais pas.
Sceneshifter
In the first part of Song for Gigi, we see a succession of miniature landscapes that represent one and the same space, but at different moments in time. The second part consists of an almost infinite series of panels that appear, disappear, open and close, and thus constantly reveal new settings in the same space. In this visual elegy, Benjamin Verdonck plays the role of a sceneshifter who initiates the transformation of images but then gets lost in them. He is accompanied by two musicians.
• Benjamin Verdonck is an actor, author, visual artist and theatre director. He performs both on conventional theatre stages and in the public space. After one more thing and WE DON’T SPEAK TO BE UNDERSTOOD (a collaboration with Pieter Ampe) last season, he is coming back to the Kaaitheater with two more new productions: Song for Gigi and The Little Wooden Donkey.
