theatre/performanceILLBEGONE - Toneelacademie Maastricht
This performance premiered in june 2010, as part of the SIA RAAK research on the place of the virtual body in theatre performances. Created by young performers of the Toneelacademie Maastricht in collaboration with performers of the Manchester Metropolitan University, it picks up on the concept of the angels - probably the first true virtual bodies in history.
Due to an illness of one of the main performers, it was only presented a few times. It won the ‘IT’s Guest Award’ for the best foreign student performance at the IT’s festival in Amsterdam 2010. Peter Missotten directed and designed the stage for this project.
