Second atelier residency at Gouvernement
Fascinated by absurd theatre which connects and alienates in an ever-changing dynamic system
During her residency at Gouvernement, she develops the monologue Glory Box (w.i.p.) which will premiere in June, alongside Compagnie Cecilia. The monologue tells the story of a janitor locked inside her own building, a world seemingly created by Bryssinck’s poetic use of language. Loneliness ultimately leads to physical consequences, embroided in a resemblance to a thé dansant. The rhythm of the sentences also correspond to the moving body in isolation – which is even more insensified while creating everything on her own, as she quickly connects writing to physically playing the show.
Bryssinck has also work with e.g. Dounia Mahammed, in USOTROOP (2013), Marijke Pinoy in Zalig de Onwankelbaren (2015), Loes Swaenepoel and Tim Taveirne in Ohne Intuïtion ist ein Mensch in der Dunkelheit (2016).
