'Every Word Was Once An Animal' ( (première)
OUR SUMMER @Bijloke Wonderland
25.08 - 29.08

Half-truth or big fat lie?

“‘Every Word Was Once An Animal’ starts with someone coming on stage, walking to the microphone, adjusting its height and beginning to talk. This person is good at beginnings. Everyone wanted to play this part but, as fate would have it, it was them. As the opener, it’s down to you to set the tone for the whole show. No easy task. It’s a big responsibility, in fact, because if you can pull off those first sentences, if they land, it’s pure magic. The beginning can’t go on forever, of course. The rest of the show awaits. And no, we’re not giving anything away. But trust us, we’re storytellers.”

Ontroerend Goed

In ‘Every Word Was Once An Animal’ Ontroerend Goed dances on the thin line between truth and another truth. Forget what you just read. Just remember that a half-truth is often a big fat lie. Ghent premiere!
