Geert Belpaeme (BE) / l’hommmm: De dieren

The animals is a playful requiem for a dying ecosystem and a failing image of humanity. The performance takes you to the zoo, the place par excellence where the human project is implemented. The zoo is a place to watch. Where animals have to perform their otherness so that humankind can confirm itself. But in this zoo the boundaries are blurred between who is human and who is animal. In this zoo it is unclear who should perform (for) whom.

“Animals are always the observed. The fact that they can observe us has lost all significance.” (John Berger, Why look at Animals?)
