The wings are where actors wait for their grand entrance to the stage… But on Mondays it’s time to relax! On this occasion actors, but also anyone else who loves theatre, can see the stage from a different angle and enjoy a reading of new plays. Together we discover extracts from three newly written texts, read aloud on stage.
You’ll discover that the spontaneous but unorthodox way that these texts are recited from the wings is just as interesting for the reader as for the listener. The extracts for each edition are picked by a professional theatre creator, writer, editor or translator who wants to share their love for stage texts today, no matter where they’re from.
Special guest is Michael De Cock who picked these texts:
- LA FURIE by Grażyna Plebanek, translated from French by Cécile Bocianowski
- LE DÉMANTÈLEMENT DES NAVIRES, FORÊTS VIERGES ET AUTRES PETITES CHOSES IMPERTINENTES by Pascale St-Onge (Québec)
- AFROPEAN // HUMAN BEING by Sukina Douglas, translated from English by Isabelle Grynberg
