De Blinde Dichter Needcompany C Maarten Vanden Abeele Maarten Vanden Abeele
​Starting from the different nationalities, cultures and languages of his performers, Jan Lauwers travels more than a thousand years back in time to discuss identity in multicultural Europe.

He takes texts from the tenth and eleventh centuries by the blind Syrian poet Abu al ‘ala al Ma’arri and the Andalusian poetess Wallada bint al Mustakfi. Their work evokes memories of a time in which women were in power and atheism was entirely normal, where Paris was still a provincial town and Charles the Great a notorious illiterate. About strong women who throw stones and end up being burnt at the stake. About a crusader whose armour is too small.
