Death of a politician

 

Tom Lanoye has written a new play about the life and work of an older politician: The man wants to stop, and yet he doesn’t, but he has no choice, so how should he go about it? Not with a whimper but with a bang, if he has any say in the matter. He’ll look for a finale, a final public moment of glory in which he can abdicate – lauded and celebrated – in the knowledge that he will still be able to exercise power from behind the scenes. Or that’s how he imagines it…
A number of other characters circle around this central figure, like moths and mosquitoes around the searing lamplight of power: his wife, who wants to enjoy a quiet retirement with him; his brilliant son, the crown prince; his mistress, who is waiting for the moment he asks for a divorce so that he can embark upon a second youth with her; his internal opponent – the honest but terribly dull seasoned party man; and his faithful political mentor and friend – a sly tactician, and a tower of strength at both a political and a private level, the trouble shooter, the man in the twilight zone, who carries out tasks that are only handed out silently and with averted eyes…

 

Revue Ravage promises to be a terrific clash between renowned musicians and ditto actors: Josse de Pauw creates and acts together with Els Dottermans, An Miller, Nico Sturm, Willy Thomas and Frank Focketyn. Peter Vermeersch composes the music that will be performed live by Flat Earth Society.
