"THRILLER..." / 2009

Scenography

After a fruitful collaboration with actor and maker Diederik Peeters on The Hero Dies, Sarah & Charles lend their work to the stage for Peeters’ first Solo piece “Thriller...”.The play is a wordless and slightly sinister type of sitcom that just doesn't seem to get going. We witness a character in a given interior - a room. He seems involved in the beginnings of a story, but quickly gets entangled in the splinters and echoes of his own actions. Clues and bits of possible plot are thrown about, left to loop and spiral on each other, searching for some connection within the bigger picture. Meanwhile the interior begins to dissipate, losing any safety or familiarity it once held. Mysteriously dimming wall lamps, money on a mantelpiece and the obligatory murder weapon pop up in a mash of mystery and abstraction. In this scattered reality time is merely a device that prevents everything from happening at once. But amidst all this, the inhabitant maintains his relentless endeavors to grasp a thread of logic...
