& Feike’s huis: ‘Village, story of a view’

In 1750, Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni built a ‘Salle Des Machines’. He showed Venice at sunrise, ancient Greece at midday, Rome at dusk. In 2010, the Flemish theatre maker Annelies Van Hullebusch built her ​​native village. ‘Village, story of a view’ is a new production of Feikes House, the national production house for puppet and object theatre.

Before the eyes of the visitors, Motel Mozaique creates a village. Models of cardboard, wood or patchwork tell stories, supplemented by a booklet. Stories about the changes of a village, the changes of a human being and why someone would decide to leave his village. An autobiographical narrative that plunges into the fantasy. On July 3, 1982, Annelies Van Hullebusch was born. In 2000, she leaves her native village. Now she’s building ‘Village’, and is reconstructing her story. Per show there is room for 30 spectators sitting around the models. They become a part of ‘Village’.
