On tour with 'Perhaps All The Dragons'

BERLIN on tour with 'Perhaps All The Dragons'

PERHAPS ALL THE DRAGONS […in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage] - premiere January 2014


One round table with thirty seated screens at one side of the table and thirty audience seats at the other side. Thirty one-on-one narratives. The spectator can choose five he would like to see.

A famous pianist realizes on stage that she studied the wrong concerto – a neurosurgeon swaps head and body of two monkeys, they stay alive – in Japan there are 700 000 people living as hikikomori, withdrawn in their sleeping rooms for at least a year, away from social life - Six degrees of separation, a theory that everyone is six or fewer steps away from any other person in the world. A large array of dispersed stories will be offered to the audience.

Berlin will encounter the people behind the little or great stories in international magazines, newspapers, specialized internet sites, youtube. The themes brought up in these stories will be eclectic: from a philosophic proposition, over a scientific detail, to an anecdote…

Premiere of 'Jerusalem' + tour dates

On the 22nd and 23rd of May, the premiere of ‘Jerusalem’, will take place at STUK in Leuven [BE]. 

 

10 years after recording for the first performance about Jerusalem, BERLIN revisits the holy city. Former interviewees are contacted, images are put together, a discussion is done over. Old and new images are edited into a film on multiple screens with live music.

The names of the political leaders may have altered, but the conflict keeps on transcending the region. Israelis ruled by the fear of attack. Palestinians condemned to live as second-class citizens. This serves as the backdrop to the typical daily life of a metropolis: discos, bars, markets, building projects, artists, parties, etc.

All fault lines converge in this navel of the world.

 

Concept Berlin [Bart Baele and Yves Degryse] • music composition Peter Van Laerhoven

Live-musicians Eric Thielemans, Katelijn Van Kerckhoven, Tristan Driessens, Peter Van Laerhoven
