Audition workshop

Audition workshop with Lisaboa Houbrechts for Grandpa Puss; or how God disappeared.

For a new production, laGeste (les ballets C de la B + kabinet k) is looking for boys between 14 and 16 years old who enjoy being on stage.

Director Lisaboa Houbrechts is creating a family epic that spans three generations. She looks back at the era of her grandparents, her parents and her own generation. At the end of a long history is a 12-year-old girl who delves into the hidden traumas of the past. Lisaboa Houbrechts elaborates the story in images, text and music. She builds a performance full of magic and poetry, in which today's children and teenagers play the young versions of the parents and grandparents. On stage are players, singers and musicians of all ages; from children over young adult performers to established theatre icons. The show Grandpa Puss; or how God disappeared, will premiere at the opera in Ghent in February 2023.

We are organising an audition weekend for boys who want to portray a teenager growing up in the 1970s punk years in this experimental and emotionally charged family drama. The role is textual and physical.
