“In ALL, Lisa Verbelen succeeds in combining the most complex questions of life into a seemingly simple theatrical language. Installation, music and image tell the story without ever becoming anecdotal. ALL. is musical theatre in its purest form.”
“Lisa Verbelen is a remarkable musical performer. (...) Her renderings on stage are intimate, lucid, decisive. She calls out the complexity of all things, which is then translated into a comprehensible score for her audience.”
Operadagen Rotterdam Award 2018
ALL. is a music theatre performance in which Lisa Verbelen tries to grasp something big (everything). Alone.
ALL. is about the fact that everything is complex.
Lisa doubts, changes perspectives, and zooms out while considering the following questions:
These considerations manifest themselves in quite an ambitious performance with a moving stage, music, smoke and possibly a little dance.
Nothing is certain but it will be different than you think, and you will leave as a changed person.
(Although, if you do not come, you will change anyway.)
ALL. is part of Lisa’s long-term research into the relationships between the sound and the
visual form of music, and into the influence music, language and scenography can have on each other and how they can form a composition together.
