  • Needcompany | Performing arts: Viviane De Muynck | All is vanity
    and truths overlap each other and the fiction of historical truth the lie of acted reality Using the artists who figured in Goll s life from Joyce Rilke and Breton to Léger Dali and Chagall she demonstrates that artistic significance and human value do not always coincide just as Goll s privileged testimonies often become perverse exposures of what is intimate and fragile But Claire Goll does not spare herself

  • Needcompany | Performing arts: Maarten Seghers | WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHAT DO YOU MEAN AND OTHER PLEASANTRIES
    as soon as he gets started his world turns out to be a hilarious delight Tough Shit has brought a band with him The Horrible Facts 6 oversized wooden sound boxes that assist him as both instruments and witnesses He is imprisoned in his own song to the rhythm and sounds of his special guest band A song that cannot be stopped just like life It must and shall continue passionate and intense because there is no other option Beyond pointlessness beyond loneliness beyond helplessness beyond the struggle with mortality With an elated optimism he sings of the art of living In all its failures in all its humour He throws himself into an excess of rhythm doggerel and emotions and takes this existential serenade to a physically absurd and musically hysterical peak WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHAT DO YOU MEAN AND OTHER PLEASANTRIES is a concert an everlasting pop song a sculptural dance a sound installation a stand upcomedy show a performance Through seeming absurdity Seghers smartly and inimitably exposes art practice and with beauty and hilarity ploughs through the inevitability of our woes This feast of feelings contains a human life full of love and tragedy Needcompany Hooikaai

  • Needcompany | Performing arts: MaisonDahlBonnema | The Ballad of Ricky and Ronny - a Pop Opera
    when life takes a different course they see it as an injustice which they cannot accept They prefer to escape into a fantasy world where everything is still possible The glamour of the imagination is maintained to the extreme There is no room for intellectual detachment in what Ricky and Ronny proclaim Because they sing about everything that comes to mind they live entirely in the present and do not foster evil in their hearts But this uncensored musical expression does not bring relief On the contrary the more they sing the more they lose sight of reality and become entangled in the turbulence of their disturbed hearts and minds Ultimately they skim dangerously close to the edge of their own insanity which only increases their mutual incomprehension But there is no way back and they sing their way into the world of excess Wishes become the father and mother of imagination An adopted child materialises out of snow and seed and people who jump from buildings transform into human snow In The Ballad of Ricky and Ronny a Pop Opera Anna Sophia Bonnema and Hans Petter Dahl continue their quest for the ideal combination of stage play and concert

  • Needcompany | Performing arts: MaisonDahlBonnema | Ricky and Ronny and Hundred Stars – a Sado Country Opera
    twinkling presence of eternal spoilsport and Salvationist Hundred Stars who in her turn has been sent to save them from their degenerate fantasies Through her Ricky and Ronny stumble into a pornographic universe where they appear to lose their hold completely As they float through space Ricky and Ronny guided by Hundred Stars sound out the possibility of a rebirth a continuation of their existence on earth In this opera unbridled idolatry and rampant consumerism are stranded in the plant and animal kingdoms What do stars have to do with animals And what happens when we take animals seriously and are literally absorbed by them in an attempt to embody animal energy Hundred Stars helps Ricky and Ronny to focus on these issues and in passing teaches them that good and evil are inseparable The setting is Paris and the rest of the mental world This sadistic underworld is coloured by melancholy landscape songs Sado Country is the musical style for this new opera nothing but sadness and the aggressive pleasure of wanting to feel it by singing and telling about it A world fuelled by day to day worries and moral dilemmas and the eternal endeavour to do good Dream on Ricky and Ronny and Hundred Stars a Sado Country Opera tries to tell a story about the contemporary experiences of a couple for whom there is no happy end What initially resembles a soap is soon transformed into a metaphorical tangle a psychedelic nirvana in which several realities intermingle In their first opera Maison DahlBonnema showed that their artistic concept is a successful expression of a new theatrical idiom In Ricky and Ronny and Hundred Stars a Sado Country Opera they continue the quest for the potential of this genre In this work the creators and performers Anna
