“Rarely do concert performances feel as organic and innovative as this catchy gem.”


TWO. is not a solo

Lisa Verbelen en Hendrik Lasure / Het Zuidelijk Toneel & BOG.


I read in a book 

thinking is a form of feeling 

and feeling is a form of thinking

I was so happy to know 

there are not only two ends of the line

not only two ends of the road

that you can be both

that things can be found in between things 


After her solo performances ONE. and ALL., Lisa Verbelen will form a duo in TWO. with celebrated jazz musician Hendrik Lasure. 

Starting from the theme of opposites and inspired by Taoism and hip-hop, Lisa and Hendrik are creating a music album. Together with director Suze Milius they will turn the album into a theatrical concert. 

TWO. is not a solo is an exercise in re establishing the idea of opposites; to experience what exists in between two extremes. What happens when two people meet. 

Expect a musical and theatrical concert, words and music that make you feel and think, both hard and soft, both dark and light, with smoke and fire, water in the desert, not ugly nor beautiful, all yin and yang, about you and me.
