Ouder Kind - Raven Ruëll & Bruno Vanden Broecke / KVS
Ouder Kind is the tenth joint creation by Bruno Vanden Broecke and Raven Ruëll. At this milestone, they’ve taken a different approach from their previous performances. Apart from a few technicians, no one knows what to expect.
Ouder Kind sketches a fictionalized autobiographical portrait of Bruno Vanden Broecke and Raven Ruëll. It is about friendship, about failed projects and about the eternal tension between actor and director. Together they go in search of the vulnerability of their intense friendship. The two actors play an alternative version of themselves, where fiction and non-fiction intertwine.
'Half the walk is but retracing our steps.' From Henry David Thoreau’s Walden. I never forgot that quote. We never lose ourselves anymore. We can’t get lost. GPS makes it impossible. The feeling of being lost - we lost it. And because you can’t lose yourself, there is nothing to discover.
