A baroque miniature of light and darkness with a compelling soundtrack.
A magical machine that seems to operate itself in the dusk.
A cabinet of curiosities with faded colours, little hatches that open and close, light, darkness and a whole lot of strings.
Within mere minutes, Benjamin Verdonck captivates audiences with his short show ‘Waldeinsamkeit’. Coinciding with the group exhibition ‘Daily Nightshift’, Kunsthal Extra City invited theatre maker and artist Benjamin Verdonck to perform this piece on the occasion of Heritage Day 2020, which also focussed on ‘The Night’. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, this was however cancelled.
Check out the trailer here though.
-----On the website of Toneelhuis you can also find other also other short shows of Verdonck that you can enjoy from your home.
Location Kunsthal Extra City - Antwerpen-Berchem, Eikelstraat 25-31, 2600 Antwerpen
