It Was Like (Eisbär*)
In what still seems to be a far and distant future, EISBÄR* makes something about fools.
People who live on the edge of our society.
People that are expelled because they are different.
People who do not fit in.
But: maybe they are the only normal ones?
What does it mean to be crazy? What is our scene? When do we think we are getting crazy? What isn't acceptable in our society? When do you start needing pills? Are you crazy when you can no longer function in society? Or is our society mad?
EISBÄR* goes to work with the theme of madness. A performance about the thin line between genius and madness. About being crazy as the engine of creativity. About abnormality and standards in our crazy society.
Premiere October 2015.
with: Femke Heijens, Fien Maris, Hannes d'Hoine, Peter Seynaeve, Jeroen Perceval, and an unknown fool I production: EISBÄR I in collaboration with: Monty (BE)
