A film by Lazara Rosell Albear

'EPIDEMIC: Theatre de Colère' a project of Ben Benaouisse, Einat Tuchman, Kurt Vandendriessche, Helmut Van den Meersschaut, Stijn Dickel, Chris Van der Burght, Lazara Rosell Albear. Extended Synopsis: During 5 days various artists worked around the theme of permanet rage at Hoet Bekaert Gallery in Ghent, Belgium. Inspired by the film Epidemic directed by Lars Von Trier they unconsiously readapted the original script. They engaged on a contrapuntal instantly performatic investigation at an open but secluded espace. They started with the last chapter of the filmwork and arrived to an end with the first. An energic, poetic and emotional extreem world as a result. Lazara Rosell Albear shot the performances during the five days for the making of a film. An intimistic and raw portrayal of a group of individuals forced loose into a situation with a set of rules: a pre-existent script, a set of props, a confined space, live sound manipulation and the Erbarme Dich of Johann Sebastian Bach. The first cut is a film in 5 chapters. The initial idea was to make a shortfilm but the material turned out to be so unic and one-off out-off common grounds that we decided to extend the project to a transmedia experience; touching border styles: creative documentary – installation - webpisodes.
