It’s Friday, January 11, in the evening. A trucker passes a blockade of Yellow Vests in Luik. He’s tired, he wants to go home. One Yellow Vest tries to stop the truck. The movement must grow, surely a trucker can understand that? It’s him they’re fighting for after all… The protester climbs on the bumper to look the trucker in the eye. The windscreen becomes a mirror – a moment of hesitation and recognition. He could be the man behind the wheel. We’re fighting for you, he shouts. He bangs on the windscreen with a spanner. The driver panics and drives off – and the protester is dragged under the truck. Fury turns to fear.
This tragic incident is the starting point for a new piece by Stijn Devillé. Performed by Kris Cuppens, Sara Vertongen, Aïcha Cissé and Pieter-Jan De Wyngaert.
