By and with Eve Bonfanti and Yves Hunstad (Brussels)

Eve Bonfanti and Yves Hunstad are the co-creating force responsible for numerous deeply inventive and convention-shattering theatrical productions. They are presenting us this year with a part film part theatre invitation to get up close and personal. Allowing us to witness the unpredictable nature of their creative process and their private dialogues, they’ll reveal moments of intimacy and fragility along the way.

The production is twofold. Part 1: the screening of the film Le plaisir du désordre, a documentary directed by Christian Rouaud about the first three years of research, writing and rehearsals for their previous show L’heure et la seconde. During intermission, an aperitif will be served.

Part 2: the play Digressions et autres détours avant de jouer, in continuity of the film. Our two protagonists, now on stage, carry on with the daring elaboration of their show: the premiere is coming up in a few days and will be the opening act of a major contemporary theatre festival. The challenge is formidable and time is ticking away…

In this delightfully subversive blurring of the lines between fiction and reality, Bonfanti and Hunstad intertwine poetry and humour with remarkable finesse. With the audience as its artistic accomplice for the night, the show will culminate in a stunningly unexpected grand theatrical finale.
