Jan Fabre opens its new creation at the festival of Naples

Theatre lay at the birth of this small country, and theatre is what this small country shall remain. 

The rehearsals for Jan Fabre’s newest production Belgian Rules/Belgium Rules started at the beginning of February. In this production Jan Fabre pays homage to his motherland. Just as Fellini made his Roma, Fabre wants to celebrate his complex, crazy country. He uses the language best suited to grasp the spirit of this slippery state: that of the theatre, that of the image.

An international cast of performers and musicians searches for the Belgian identity and translates it into a travelling dance and theatre performance. Singer-songwriter Raymond van het Groenewoud provides the anthems; author Johan de Boose writes the text.

The avant-première will be on the 1st of July 2017 during the Napoli Teatro Festival Italia in Teatro Politeama. The première will take place the 18th of July 2017 during ImPulsTanz Festival Vienna.
