|Book Release - Corpus Jan Fabre. Observaciones de un proceso creativo, by Luk Van den Dries
Luk Van den Dries immerses himself in the oeuvre of Jan Fabre – in the fields of theater, dance, opera, visual art – and discovers the essence of the work of the outstanding Belgian artist: the body is not a fixed form but one in constant movement and transformation. What happens with corporeality in his stage productions? What are its features? What is the creative process like in Fabre’s universe? How is his extraordinary imagination shaped into theatrical forms? These are some of the questions covered by the author. Van den Dries studied German philology at the University of Brussels and is the dramaturg of two of Fabre’s productions: Tannhäuser and Requiem für eine Metamorphose. He is Professor of Theater Studies at the University of Antwerp (Belgium), was the editor of the theater magazine Etcetera, worked at the Flemish-Dutch Theaterfestival and was the president of the Flemish Arts Council. His book publications include Performance, transformance, informance. New Concepts in Theatre; Body Check; Omtrent de opvoering. Heiner Müller en drie decennia theater in Vlaanderen; and Corpus Jan Fabre, which has been translated into seven languages. Together with Fabre, he founded Aisthesis, a research center on the representation of the body in today’s theater.
