BRANDON LAGAERT – ‘Life on George’
“Life on George” talks about the resilience of our human bodies when pushed to its uttermost limit and how that influences us psychologically.
After the plane crash, a lost and dazed pilot looks for his missing wife. A broken internal compass does not only deviate his sense of direction but simultaneously his morals. Physical torment slowly fogs up his mental state.
When your mind brings your worst nightmares to life it is impossible to distinguish between reality and fiction.
You said that you’d want chocolate to replace the air in your lungs.
I said that’s why your coffin would be a big Snickers bar.
I laughed, she snickered.

ATELIER 21220 – Fragile
What would it be like to live in a world, in a community, where we are aware of our real emotions and we dare to undertake them? Where we don’t play roles and games. Where we don’t try to meet the expectations of others, but rather be ourselves. Where people are authentic.
Fragile is a tragicomedy in one act about the fragility of the human soul and the process of becoming a man. The focus point of the new performance of Gyula Cserepes – a theatre maker and performer, originating from Vojvodina, Serbia – is the question of authenticity. During the show, he tries to put himself in a situation where he reflects on his own feelings, sensations in the present tense, thereby increasingly getting rid of pretentiousness. Through this radical honesty he would like to show to the spectators what an open communication showing the fragility of the human soul could be like.
The aim of the author is to create a theatrical situation, which could go beyond its own existence. In order to reach this, the idea of creating an interactive, community-theatre performance – by which he could set off the audience from the usual situation of being an observer in order to give them a chance to experience the relaxation through personal participation – has been hovering in front of his eyes. Through the performance, the spectators can get a taste of how to get into a deeper connection with themselves, their feelings and thoughts. By doing so, the performance actually breaks through the fourth wall that divides the audience and the stage.
