Decoratelier & KVS
Unfortunately, this production cannot be reprised. Jozef Wouters and Jeroen Peeters are collaborating with the TheaterFestival to publish the script of the play with the De Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek. The first edition will be presented during an official book presentation at the TheaterFestival.
For two whole years, in a small studio above the main auditorium at the KVS, Jozef Wouters has delved into the history of scenography. What does scenography mean today? What kinds of places or landscapes are relevant in this era? He established a temporary Decoratelier: a motley crew of builders, thinkers, former sailors, and a retired landscape painter. The group asked various artists what kind of scenery they would like to see depicted in the theatre today. Each conversation yielded an infini – traditionally, a painted backdrop that evokes a space inside the theatre, a horizon for the imagination. Infini 1-15 is a heterogeneous performance in which, for three full days, the entire collection of infinis has the theatre machine spinning at full speed and setting the viewing machine into motion.
