In 1994, Jan Decorte wrote his unequalled theatre script Bloetwollefduivel: a jet-black abstraction of the ultimate play about evil: Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The horrors of the world resonate in the raging and roaring, the hacking and the murder of Bloetwollef. It was a veritable ‘descente aux enfers’ that went straight to the heart of the piece: ‘the horror, the horror’.
body a.k.a. starts from this iconic text but seeks to ward off evil and to turn the downwards spiral into an ecstatic high. Jan Decorte, Sigrid Vinks, and the young multi-talent Lisah Adeaga – who appeared in Decorte’s Hamlet 0.2 last season – engage in the battle body and soul. There is also an important role for an everyday ladle.
‘This is an attempt to turn the absolute blackness of the former image into a golden haze that irradiates and moves the actors/dancers/singers. This results in joy, sunlight, the bright radiance of the moon and a drop of gold/blood.’ – JAN DECORTE
