Works: Pieter De Buysser

Landscape with skiproads

On stage, a collection of authentic objects that have played a unique role in history. Together with these, Pieter De Buysser, the galloper Zoltan and Abbas, his horse, are on a search for a lost future.

A joyful and desperate epic journey is taking off, with love and a glove, with Pavlov’s bell and Aquinos’ belly, with Yeltsin’s last bottles and Walt Disney’s meat knife. Can they turn time into a landscape with skiproads?

“Follow that man. Theatre as a gift. Theatre that liberates.” **** De Morgen

“A fabulous magician with stories that concern us.” **** De Theaterkrant
