Do the calimero
In Do the Calimero, director Lies Pauwels shows carnival as the ultimate metaphor for our condition humaine. An outlet, a feast, a rite of passage too, an ode to drinking and flirting, dancing and fighting. A celebration of sin, and no man is without sin, so it will be a big party where everyone belongs.
In Do the Calimero - a co-production between 'LOD muziektheater' and 'hetpaleis' and the first creatin that Lies Pauwels will make as a LOD resident.
Pauwels goes in search of what is perhaps the most fundamental motive for human beings: the irresistible urge to escape. To escape from the systems, the rules, the delimited world that we have constructed ourselves. People constantly have to walk within the lines, and at the same time they have the incessant, compulsive urge to be dissident.
