Calenture n° 47 de l’Hypogée pour acteur, double peau et petits pots de confiture

The French playwright and theatre director settles scores with marmalade jars made by his mother in one of the clownish performances of which he holds the secret. Between body art and dramatic poem – embodied by the voice of the fine actor Marcel Bozonnet. But, are we really at the Comédie française?

Jean Lambert-Wild (FR)

Jean Lambert-wild, author, actor, scenographer, and director for actors, was born in 1972 in La Réunion. In 1990, he began writing and working on the scenic building for his Hypogée. In 1997, he became an associate artist at the Granit-Scène nationale in Belfort and founded the Cooperative 326. From 2007 to 2014, he directed the Comédie de Caen – CDN of Normandy-Rouen; since 2015 he has been directing the Théâtre de l’Union et L’Académie – Ecole Supérieure Professionnelle de Théâtre in Limousin. His “calentures” – a calenture is a violent delirium to which sailors are subject when crossing the tropical zone and is characterized by hallucinations and the irresistible desire to jump into the sea – represent the most performative aspect of his output.

The performance get-together in Brussels is back!

After nine editions in different places and a hiatus lasting several years, the festival re-surfaces, this time in a more user-friendly format, where henceforth the Thor Studio will be its epicenter.


For its tenth edition – and the first in this new context – TROUBLE is named “redux” (from the latin term which means the identical restauration, but also the return, what comes back). Numerous works question the re-living (a moment), the re-doing (an action), the re-starting, and the renewal : ideas that seem opposed to what we think of performative art. We’ll see the contrary through all twenty-two performances, with artists coming from far away (such as the californian body artist Ron Athey or the feminist afghan Kubra Khademi), but also with emblematic belgian performers such as Gwendolin Robin or Claude Cattelain. Several propositions will be musical or festive. TROUBLE will also ride on the Radio Panik waves, pass through the audacity of young artists from La Cambre, or take some time for reflectional, philosophical and critical moments. The festival will strongly be part of his neighbourhood, particularly in his close surroudings, from a school’s yard to a church crypt, from a mysterious alley to the Saint-Josse square… With several propositions for a limited number of publics, the first arrived will be the best served. A journey with multiple possible ways, thought by the curator Antoine Pickels, to be living for an evening, a day, a week-end or for a four days immersion.
