Pre-summer atelier residency
Can we find it in our hearts to accepts someone’s choice of deliberately leaving the world of the living?
Noman delicately plays with notions of forgiveness, acceptance and commemoration. It highlights another perspective of suicide: that of embracing one’s heart-breaking choice and finding love in what once was.
Carlier, who wrote the play, was also a Montignard at Monty Kultuurfaktorij where Noman premiered in January 2019 (for an in-depth interview about Noman, you can visit this page). Their two-week residency allowed them to research and redefine certain aspects, which will result in a different version.

There are still tickets left.
Compagnie De Kolifokkers is founded by Anna Carlier, Indra De Bruyn, Louise Bergez a.o. They share a background in theatre (KASK Drama), where the initial idea arose to write and play together.
Via this all-female joint alias and through creating a distinctive, partially fantasy world, they question reality and its truth and put both into different perspectives.
Besides their common practice, they’re actively engaged in other things: Carlier is currently a resident at CC Hasselt (where she’ll work with children to transform or rework a previous text), De Bruyn is writing her first novel and Bergez is busy acting for several TV series and films, such as the very first Flemish movie about zombies.
