A CAVE FULL OF SLIME WITH A STRAW
hetpaleis & DE MAAN/ Benjamin Verdonck
Welcome to the A CAVE FULL OF SLIME WITH A STRAW (EEN GROT VOL MET SLIJM MET EEN RIETJE) travel page. We are delighted that you are interested in this performance. The following page contains everything you need to make the show an outstanding one, in terms of both technical requirements and communications.
The scenery plays the starring role,
it crashes and scours its way across the stage and uses ropes and pulleys to transform one setting into the next.
Have I been here before?
Is it a dark castle?
Is it very long corridor?
A vacant dancehall, its door just blown open?
The lair of a fox?
A tiny garden?
A green icebox adorned with snow?
Or is it slime?
Have all the living beings disappeared from the stage, or are they still there?
Theatre-makers Benjamin Verdonck and Lucas Van Haesbroeck are conjurers who have spent many years elevating the most ordinary objects into theatrical set-pieces. They seek inspiration in the extensive archives held by the DE MAAN theatre group and in the technical complexities of puppetry.
