THE COMMON PEOPLE is a social experiment, installation and performance rolled into one. Choreographer Jan Martens and film director Lukas Dhont develop a series of duets and an installation with 48 residents from Leuven. The leitmotiv is the lives of unknown fellow city dwellers, privacy versus exhibitionism and the narration of everyday life. The result is a performance that reclaims theatre as a place for encounters, person to person.
The necessity to feel connected to others in our society is becoming increasingly important: the more ‘likes’ you receive, the better. Smartphones and social network sites connect us to each other, but also pave the way for individualism and loneliness: we’re no longer connected with one another but with our screens. THE COMMON PEOPLE brings people together in a more human way, intense and intimate, with physical contact, one to one.
In the framework of B-swap, an artistic identity swap between Beursschouwburg and Les Brigittines — Playhouse for Movement.
Between 19 & 22 April, Beursschouwburg will be moving to Les Brigittines and vice versa! This artistic identity swap contains an artistic programme and a city game in which others are invited to swap as well. Swap it!
