festival van (nieuwe) makers 16 — 25 2021 antwerp


Mitch Van Landeghem & Carine van Bruggen

Mitch Van Landeghem had intended to make a show about Harry Potter’s impact on an entire generation, but his plans changed. He used the budget to fly to America and make a 4000 kilometre road trip. He did not do it alone, however. Eindelijk is a report on a journey from Las Vegas to New York in which one person talks about two people who have different ideas about God and what to believe in. Sorry, no, why to believe. Two people having long discussions in a car. Why is it that something which doesn’t exist can sustain one person and not the other? Why was the first thing man ever said in the Bible ‘finally‘? Why does nobody understand that it sometimes feels like all the bones in your body have been removed? And Supertramp’s Goodbye Stranger – they talk about that too.

script & performance Mitch Van Landeghem - co-creator Carine van Bruggen - partly made possible by Kultuurfaktorij Monty, De Nwe Tijd, Gouvernement, De Grote Post - with thanks to Ans Van den Eede, Wannes Gyselinck, Manon De Baecke
