Desire Louis Janssens

With a newly written text as a starting point, Louis Janssens is on stage together with three players. Four lonely souls take us into their personal thoughts, doubts, fears and desires. They share what they normally would not dare to show to each other. In Desire they do that, only to discover that they are actually quite similar in that respect. They talk, stammer, sing and move restlessly across the empty stage.

Desire is a tranquil performance about the desire to experience something. To be loved, to be touched. The universal desire for connection is made tangible in a playful and personal way. The audience is taken into a recognizable and intimate world of thoughts.

After the solo performance Serenade (selected for #nieuwjong of Het TheaterFestival 2021) and the duet Analoog with Willem de Wolf/De HOE (selection Het TheaterFestival and Nederlands Theater Festival 2023), Louis Janssens is now creating the performance Desire with a group of young queer players. It is the next step in creating performances that are able to depict a poetic and intimate, as well as a joyful and playful world.
