Black comedy on the tension between individual and community 

A conference, a tai chi class, an evening of disco dancing: follow the performers of ‘GUERILLA’ in their everyday activities. Like waves in the ocean, they seem to be part of a harmonious group that moves to a single rhythm. A group of human beings living in the same moment, moving through the same streets and being influenced by the same events.


But their individual thoughts, pasts and desires are multifaceted and contradicting. ‘GUERILLA’ describes the subtle dilemmas in the heads of every individual that is part of a crowd. The viewer can read their thoughts and feel the tensions between passion and reason, the suppressed emotions, the obscene and even violent ideas that lurk behind seemingly innocent scenes.

In this black comedy, which balances fiction and documentary, the Spanish collective El Conde de Torrefiel questions not only the history of Europe, but also the future of a new generation. The theatre company works with local performers for each rendition of the show. 

 El Conde De Torrefiel zoekt performers! 

'GUERRILLA' toont de soms verwarde leefwereld van een groep mensen in eenzelfde realiteit: in tijd, in ruimte, in politiek. Samen denken ze na over nieuwe regels, nieuwe symbolen, nieuwe tools om deze wereld-in-verandering aan te pakken.

Vooruit zoekt 80 mensen die goesting hebben om op de scène te staan met de mensen van El Conde de Torrefiel op donderdag 7 en vrijdag 8 februari.

Voor hun recente productie 'Guerrilla' werken ze specifiek met mensen tussen 20 en 45 jaar. Theater- of danservaring is welkom, maar zeker niet vereist.

Wat moet je vrijhouden: 2 voorstellingen op 7 en 8 februari (om 20u) + 1 à 3 repetities op 5 en 6 februari ('s avonds).

De voorstelling omvat 3 delen:
1. ‘conferentie’ -> 30 deelnemers
2. ‘tai-chi’ -> 6 vrouwelijke deelnemers van +/- 25 tot 35 jaar met een zekere dans- of tai-chi-ervaring.
3. ‘rave party’ -> 44 deelnemers die graag dansen (elektronische muziek).

Het gezelschap zoekt ook getuigenissen van de deelnemers:
Bezorg ons het verhaal van iemand uit jouw familie/omgeving die een historisch conflict meemaakte. (immigratiegolven, dictatuur, oorlog, ..)

Wil je graag deelnemen? Laat het ons weten via tine@vooruit.be  


note: during the show there will some stroboscopic light effects and loud music.
