Ontroerend Goed is a Belgian, Ghent-based theatre performance group of international renown. The group is made of young creators who explore the space between theatre and performance, writing their own texts from a strong basic concept and adapting familiar formats from various media. From sensorial experiences with blindfolded, individual audience members, over anarchistic teenage performances up to shows that profoundly explore what it means to be a theatre-goer, the group continues to create work that is equally challenging and treacherously shallow.

A lot of contemporary plays cannot be experienced unless you've attended them and many of those performances are hard to transcribe on paper, because of their visual and physical nature. Of course, it's always possible to make a video recording, but watching that is a diminished experi­ence. Although Ontroerend Goed embrace the nowness of theatre and its visual and physical possibilities, the group wanted to take an extra step to share its work.

In this book, Ontroerend Goed explore different forms to convey a theatrical experience on paper. Each performance has its own way of approaching the audience, so each text has its own way to address the reader. This book is not made to turn the page and docu­ment the performances as a past experience, but for people to use it as a tool. A tool to play, adapt, oppose, relive, challenge and inspire.

Review:

' - covers similar territory to Tim Crouch's The Author in its examination of the role and responsibilities of the audience - undoubted power - fascinating and slippery.' Guardian on The Audience --Guardian on The Audience

'This isn't a lecture, it doesn't have a message: and yet it looks very like the networked future of political theatre: cool, determined and inside the nerve centre of political thought.' --Exeunt Magazine on All That Is Wrong

About the Author:

Ontroerend Goed is a Belgian, Ghent-based theatre performance group of international renown. They consistently make work that challenges form and, to some, is controversial.
