david weber-krebs

among the multitude (leuven)

David Weber-Krebs transforms the theatre space into a cinema..
A man is wandering around in an open landscape. He is in exile, an alien, looking for something in the wrong place, in the wrong way. When he finally enters a forest we are brought back to the social space of theatre. The film that was uniting the spectators by offering them a window to look at the world has disappeared. A shift occurs from a situation of looking at art to a situation of looking at each other. Now we are many. People looking back at people.

Among the multitude is a proposition to review and rethink our position as collective viewers of ourselves and of the world around us. It is a journey from the deepest of our European landscape to the shared and enclosed space of theatre.
