GOLEM - Thomas Ryckewaert
2 February 2017 @ De Warande, Turnhout

Using a stilled, filmic imagery, Ryckewaert combines contemporary science and an age-old human ambition. The desire to create (eternal) life goes hand in hand with a coeval fear: the creation of something that outflanks us. It's a theme that has been fascinating man for ages: from the mythical Golem, passing by Frankenstein to artificial intelligence. A visual performance on the small border between creation and destruction, between reason and fear.

Scenario & direction: Thomas Ryckewaert, Scenography: Erki De Vries, Light: Giacomo Gorini, Sound: Senjan Jansen, cast: Tina Breiova, Efrat Galai, Rosie Sommers, Jef Stevens & Kurt Vandendriessche, Assistant director: Sibran Sampers, Production: Wolff vzw / Hiros,
Coproduction: deSingel, Kaaitheater, Vooruit, TAKT Dommelhof, Platform 0090.In collaboration with: Kunstencentrum BUDA, WP Zimmer. With the support of The Flemish Community, the City of Antwerp
