Bernard Van Eeghem & Katja Dreyer - Pouce

din 10/03/2015 > woe 25/03/2015

In a quite interesting and schematic way, Katja Dreyer reveals the rather anonimous livestory of Bernard Van Eeghem who at first is not visible on stage. When does he come in? And why? Who is he really? And what will he do?

Thus it begins with a song, then another song and after that he dances or rather he moves in a very particular way, drawing circles of light, unveiling an enormous lookalike Picasso painting of his late portrait period i.e. just before the Second World War began. But don’t mention the war! Yes, don’t mention anything at all! Just sing and dance along, unfold the history of that everlasting love for his female companion on stage. She’s so beautiful and also very talented and he likes that stunning combination. So she reveals his story and he has to cope with it. But never a dull moment, whether he likes it or not and so later on, he’s telling her story. They exchange places and become visible ghosts to each other and everything starts over in a loop. Conclusion: all you need is love to kill your darlings in about twenty minutes knowing each minute tells the truth. Obladi oblada!
