The stage setting for Learning how to walk was designed by the artist Jozef Wouters. ‘You might call it an essay on space. It is a shared quest in space; a conversation in straw, wood and stone,’ says Wouters.
The TOERNEE GENERAL-label has become a classic: a common selection by the KVS and the Théâtre National, a fine, varied range of what both theatres have on offer in the upcoming season.
Lisbeth Gruwez: ‘Penelope waits, struggling with time and longing. Her movement is that of standstill.’
