Jan Fabre: To glorify the cult of tragedy

Saturday, October 26th, 2015 - Jan Fabre presents his latest work, entitled “Mount Olympus / 24h - To glorify the cult of tragedy”, in Thessaloniki Concert Hall on October 10, 2015. The monumental project measures itself against time. 30 performers and four generations act appear on stage, attending incessantly in order to interpret a play of grand scale, one that aims to explore and redefine the boundaries of the theatrical practice: 24 hours on stage, without intermission. The ancient Greek myth denudes itself from any need of commentary or humane comprehension of the world, with the interest being shifted instead in issues of primary importance, hard and shocking. It’s the unfathomable heroes and heroines that interest the Belgian artist - Medea, Antigone, Prometheus, Oedipus and Elektra, before they were checkmated by psychoanalysis. They perform deeds that are impenetrable, speak a language that falters, goes silent, rattles, vomits or becomes a mere scream.

Performers: Lore Borremans, Katrien Bruyneel, Annabelle Chambon, Cédric Charron, Renée Copraij, Anny Czupper, Els Deceukelier, Barbara De Coninck, Piet Defrancq, Mélissa Guérin, Stella Höttler, Sven Jakir, Ivana Jozic, Marina Kaptijn, Gustav Koenigs, Sarah Lutz, Moreno Perna, Gilles Polet, Pietro Quadrino, Antony Rizzi, Matteo Sedda, Merel Severs, Kasper Vandenberghe, Lies Vandewege, Andrew Van Ostade, Marc Moon Van Overmeir, Fabienne Vegt
