Thierry Smits’ new creation will be developed around the themes of the collapse of industrial society and the reinvention of living together in a destroyed world.
Conceived in collaboration with Boris Dambly’s scenographic devices which will be created in situ for the Studio Thor workspace in Brussels, the piece will be shown for twelve weeks, between November 2020 and February 2021.
During the auditions, each candidate will be asked to imagine a post-collapse situation on which he or she will be able to improvise. The project aims to question the notions of collective or individual human survival and, more generally, the ability of transformation of living beings.
For this creation, Thierry Smits wishes to gather a team of seven performers representing a wide diversity on stage. These artists must be able to make creative proposals, be endowed with a high level of body awareness, and precision in their movement’s execution. Their main training and practices may differ: dancers, physical actors, circus artists, martial artists, performers… All physical, gender, sexuality and ethnic origins are welcome. Beyond the bodily dimension, a verbal and/or musical ability will be appreciated.
The 20- to 40-year-old team will be exclusively composed with European residents.
Two audition weekends are planned:
– November 30 and December 1st, 2019
– December 7 and 8, 2019
Followed by a workshop with mandatory attendance for the last 12 participants selected in order to build a coherent team:
– December 9, 10 and 11, 2019
The presence during the rehearsal period (from August 24, 2020 to November 9, 2020) and performances (from November 11, 2020 to December 19, 2020 and from January 4, 2021 to February 26, 2021) must be constant, and will require a commitment from the participants that will not allow other rehearsals or performances during this period.
