Boys will be girls and girls will be boys | Martinis on the hill

This Double Bill presents two performances, both devised with Mole Wetherell, the artistic director of Reckless Sleepers. By coincidence, they both appeared to be inspired by a film and performed by seven actors. You can come watch these two pieces on one location at the same night, to find out what the differences are. 

After the KASK students went to present their piece at Flare Festival in Manchester last summer, the Manchester Metropolitan University students are now coming to Ghent to perform their piece here.

Boys will be girls and girls will be boys

She definitely was the biggest star of them all. Yes, she was. She was beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to be her? That’s why it is so important to get closer to her, to know the lines, to dive into that pool of uncontrolled failure. For you. “And all those other wonderful people out there in the dark. So why don’t you just sit over there and watch? Okay, let’s go. Roll’em. Ready for my close-up, mr. DeMille.”

Inspired by the movie Sunset Boulevard, seven students from the KASK School of Arts Ghent, Belgium, created Boys will be girls and girls will be boys, a new performance piece drawing on an earlier project in 2015. First performed at the Flare Festival in Manchester last summer.

With: Arne Luiting, Marie Mignolet, Martijn Gielen, Mitch Van Landeghem, Nathan Ooms, Simon Baetens and Simone van der Steen | Directed by: Mole Wetherell 

Beeld Martinis on the Hill

Martinis on the Hill

'When you watch a film over and over again you start to notice different things. You see the cracks and the fault lines, moments in the background that suggest stories you weren’t expecting, like clues to a very different puzzle…’

Martinis on the Hill, is a highly idiosyncratic response to watching and re-watching classic horror movie The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock. Dealing with ideas of control and the lack of control, with camera angles and obsessive adherence to rules, the performance offers a deconstruction of the film, and of the process of bringing film and live theatre together.

With: Celine Kutevu, Mark Powell, Libby Wallace, Rebecca Irlam, Georgia Browne, Daniel Davies and Casey Shortt | On stage technician: Cory Duffill | Directed: by Mole Wetherell
