Troubleyn

For Romaeuropa festival. More than 30 years since its dramatic debut catapulted the young Jan Fabre onto the international stage, a new edition of Troubleyn, This is theatre like it was to be expected and foreseen has lost none of its forcefulness. The talented cast endures eight hours on the stage, during which the actors perform extreme tasks leading to exhaustation and phsyically injury, in what festival organisers describe as "an experience which goes beyond a make believe mise en scene to becomes a true performance.” Don't worry if eight hours sounds too long, the audience is free to come and go during the marathon performance.
