Lisa Verbelen / BOG.
- language no problem
ALL. is a music theatre performance in which Lisa Verbelen tries to grasp something big (everything). Alone. ALL. is about the fact that everything is complex. Is complicated always chaos and is chaos always complicated? And how do you ensure structure within it? How can you accept that something is complicated without always nuancing? And should everything always be as simple as possible?
These considerations manifest themselves in quite an ambitious performance with a moving stage, music, smoke and possibly a little dance. Nothing is certain but it will be different than you think, and you will leave as a changed person. (Although, if you do not come, you will change anyway.)
ALL. is part of Lisa’s long-term research into the relationships between the sound and the visual form of music, and into the influence music, language and scenography can have on each other and how they can form a composition together.
About Lisa Verbelen
Lisa graduated from the performance department of the Toneelacademie Maastricht and from the master in music theatre T.I.M.E. at the Royal Conservatory The Hague. Following her much appreciated performance ONE. solo by Lisa Verbelen (2015), Lisa creates ALL. solo by Lisa Verbelen within BOG., the collection of theatre makers Judith de Joode, Benjamin Moen, Sanne Vanderbruggen en Lisa Verbelen. ONE. solo by Lisa Verbelen was nominated in 2016 for the most important Dutch price for new theatre makers, the BNG Bank Nieuwe Theatermakersprijs 2016, and it won the price for Best Vocal Design at the 35th Fadjr International Theatre Festival 2017 in Teheran, Iran. Lisa received an Operadagen Rotterdam 2018 Award for her “special addition to the genre music theatre”.
BOG. is driven by the longing for an overview, for naming, folding out, zooming out, rearranging, categorizing and summarizing of all the things that we humans try to capture but are too big to grasp. Like life, opinions, or believing.
