In honor of the jubilee year of de KOE, Peter Van den Eede and Bas Teken present a revival of their very first play exactly thirty years after its premiere, in the place where it all began: the Black Room of deSingel.
De Gebiologeerden tells the story of E. Van de Broek and L. Van der Plas. These two friends, who can’t let their emotions and passions run free, interact through an unviable and forced pattern of politeness. This way, they suppress not only their feelings, but also a dormant yet ardent love for each other, born from a mutually expressed, yet never discussed, need for affection. Partially out of fear for this open confrontation, this true dialogue, Erwin and Ludo have delved into ornithology. It has become an extreme obsession, through which they can communicate without immediate danger of perishing one day by fault of their innermost feelings.
