Van den Vos

Music theatre inspired by the epic fable Reynard

> Continue to more recent data of this production

Inspired by the epic fable Reynard, FC Bergman, Toneelhuis and Muziektheater Transparant play a timeless piece with text by Josse de Pauw and music by Liesa van der Aa. 

After radical adaptations of (among other things) La Divina Commedia (The Divine Comedy) and Het Oude Testament (The Old Testament), FC Bergman now violates another literary classic, the epic animal poem Van de vos Reynaerde (About Reynard the Fox). This medieval folk tale was the inspiration for a show which  -  true to form - depicts man as a fundamentally anxious, indecisive creature, who in his search for fulfilment and satisfaction constantly hovers on the edge of the ravine that leads to eternity.

Liesa Van der Aa and the Berlin genre-crossing Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop set this search to music. Josse De Pauw provides the words. Dirk Roofthooft, Viviane De Muynck and Gregory Frateur take part.
