Luk De Bruyker (Theater Taptoe) and Willem Verheyden (ex-DE MAAN) took their inspiration from the scenario of Heaven!, by Daniel Billiet and Freek Neirynck, and have made a new figure-theatre production, without words, based on the numerous paintings of the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte.
The original 1991 version by Theater Taptoe toured the world.
It was performed more than 400 times and was nominated for the Signal Prize for Youth Theatre.
A red curtain, the empty frame of a painting, and clouds everywhere!
This is René Magritte's own surrealistic world, where he encounters objects, animals, people and yes, even himself, in the paintings that have made him world famous.
But is he equally welcome in every painting?
This new production is much more intimate and a fine example of figure theatre in the broadest sense of the word.
