bruegel - lisaboa houbrechts

With Bruegel, Lisaboa Houbrechts has written a kaleidoscopic portrait of Pieter Bruegel the Elder and the era in which he created Dulle Griet. In this production, the character taking the viewer on a trip through time is Dulle Griet, a woman who is denigrated as a ‘battle-axe’ because she supposedly steals objects for hell. But what if she is not stealing those objects but actually trying to save them? Lisaboa Houbrechts’ narrative is based on those lost objects.

Bruegel is performed by a magnificent cast consiting of Rand Abou Fakher, Louise Bergez, Lobke Leirens, Romy Louise Lauwers, Andrew Van Ostade, who plays Pieter Bruegel, and Anne-Laure Vandeputte in the role of Dulle Griet (Mad Meg).

Late-medieval madrigals, sung by the French polyphonic ensemble Harmonia Sacra, establish a connection with the compositions of kamancheh player Mostafa Taleb.
