Talk Show, a stunt-lecture-performance: (theatertekst)

Output: LiteraturePlay

TALK SHOW investigates the impact of slapstick stunts on verbal performance. Miet Warlop invited Hilde D'haeyere to add words to her visual work and to observe how the mix derails. Visual actions illustrate, undermine, and vitalize the academic analysis of slapstick motives such as the vulnerability of the stunt performer, the overwhelming disaster, vernacular comedy, and the culture of the quick change. By combining visual performance with an academic approach, TALK SHOW celebrates the influence of information on action, and of performance on analysis.
