Familie - Milo Rau

TICKETS

Familie Bijgeknipt Web C Michiel Devijver Michiel Devijver
In 2007 in Calais, a whole family hanged themselves: the parents and their two children. Never a motive was found, the suicide note stated: 'We messed up, sorry.' Familie is an experiment, an ethnological study of today’s private life, an exhibition of the everyday. And in the normality, the big question arises: Why are we here? On stage: a real family.

Director Milo Rau will take part in the debate, together with professor in Ethics, Philosophy and Medical Philosophy Ignaas Devisch and Kirsten Pauwels, director of VLESP, the Flemish Centre for Suïcide Prevention. Dramaturge Eline Banken will lead the debate. It will be held in English.

estimated duration

1h20'

Actors An Miller and Filip Peeters will not only act together as a couple, but for the first time in their career they will be on stage with their two teenage daughters Leonce and Louisa – and their dogs.

Familie is an experiment, an ethnological study of today’s private life, an exhibition of the everyday: on stage we see the house of Family Demeester – or is it the house of the Family Peeters/Miller? Together they will reconstruct the mysterious case of the Family Demesteer, following the journey of their own family, questioning the construction of family as the cell of life and origin of our world today.

Fiction and reality mix, as we see on stage an evening like many in families – just that it is the last one. We watch a family eat, shower, learn English, watch videos. We see them talking to each other about everyday things, making phone calls, listening to music, cleaning up the apartment, remembering moments of their lives. And in this exhibition of the normal, the big questions arise: Why are we here? Why am I here? And wouldn't it be better if we would disappear?

After shooting a new version of the "Gospel" with refugees in South Italy and while staging in the burning Amazon "Antigone" by Sophocles with indigenous activists, Rau and NTGent present with "Family" an intimate look on the Western European middle class.
