Boo Forever is a multi-media performance inspired by the work of American author Richard Brautigan (1935-1984), best known for his 1967 novel Trout Fishing in America. This show was conceived specifically for the stage and stands at the crossroad of music, poetry, as well as audiovisual creation. In it, actors and writers interact with musicians and their rock/folk or electronic influenced compositions, while original visual creations are projected on a screen. The end result is a singular poetic whole in which participants, whether they are authors, musicians, or video artists, contribute to a poetic whole that resonates beyond the simple tribute to the American author.
Creator of the project : Gauthier Keyaerts.
Musics, sounds, lute making : Gauthier Keyaerts and Stephan Ink.
Videos (instead of archives), and scenography : Jonas Luyckx.
Texts and readings : Eric Plamondon, Jean-Marc Desgent, Vincent Tholomé, Annie Lafleur, Margarida Guia and Daniel Vander Gucht …
With the support of Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles and Wallonie Bruxelles International.
Born in Brussels in 1969, Gauthier KEYAERTS approaches music in a physical, organic way. His work, based on a principle of “sound sculpture” and spatialization built on listening and instinct, can be materialized as an installation (L’Oeil Sampler), an interactive system (Fragments #43-44), on a disque (Sub Rosa, Transonic…), or even in situ (residences in La Saline Royale, Arc-et-Senans, France). His work has been presented in Belgium, France, Spain, Morocco, Taiwan, Quebec, Germany…
